Bring In Your Box Tops

Over the last few months, Indianola families brought in $337 worth of Box Tops for Education. Great work, everyone! This money helps pay for field trips, arts performances, classroom supplies, and a host of other things to enhance our kids' school experience. Keep bringing in those Box Tops! Place them in the designated tote in the Indianola office. Remember to trim them close to help save on postage. 

The next submission deadline is March 1. For more information, see the Box Tops for Education site. Thanks!
