Davis and Lane Schools participate in monthly Box Tops contests. On the last Friday of each month, Box Tops are collected from each classroom. In the 2-3 days that follow, it takes a group of 8-10 volunteers many hours to count, sort, and trim the Box Tops. Classroom Box Tops totals are recorded.
At both schools, the top three classes are revealed over the morning or afternoon announcements, and the classroom that collects the most Box Tops wins the coveted traveling trophy and a certificate. The children get very excited about the prospect of winning the trophy!
The classroom that collects the most for the entire year will win a party, goody bags, and their photo in the local newspaper. Second and third place receive goody bags.
All classes that collect 1,500 Box Tops will earn an extra recess!
