Castle Rock Elementary School Launches 2010-11 Box Tops Fundraiser

Castle Rock Elementary School proudly announces the launch of its 2010-2011 Box Tops for Education fundraising campaign. This year the school has set a goal of earning $750 through Box Tops to purchase playground equipment and classroom toys for rainy days.  Last year, our school earned $656.

”Box Tops for Education” is a school fundraising program started by General Mills in 1996. To date, Box Tops has helped America’s schools raise over $300 million to buy things they need but can’t always afford, such as art supplies, rainy day recess games, PE / sports equipment.

School supporters can earn cash for their favorite school with Box Tops through everyday activities such as buying groceries, shopping online and buying books. Schools can earn a total of up to $80,000 each year.

Here are two ways you can help:

Clip Box Tops from hundreds of favorite products and send them to Mirela Golonka, Box Tops Coordinator, at Castle Rock Elementary School, 2975 Castle Rock Road, Diamond Bar, CA 91765.  For every 30 un-expired boxtops turned into the school, you get 1 Smencil!

Sign up to help Castle Rock Elementary School on the Box Tops website at btfe.com and then
•          Shop online: Castle Rock Elementary will earn up to 15% of qualifying purchases when you shop at over 100 popular online stores at the Box Tops Marketplace®.
•          Buy books: Castle Rock Elementary School will earn up to 6% of purchases made online at Barnes & Noble through the Box Tops Reading RoomSM

For more information, visit btfe.com or contact Mirela Golonka, Castle Rock Elementary Box Tops Coordinator, at CastleRock.BoxTops@gmail.com.

SIP TO SUPPORT: Jamba Juice Fundraiser


Castle Rock Community Club has teamed up with Jamba Juice to create a sweet way to raise money for our school. 

When you present your special Castle Rock Jamba Juice swipecard, 10% of every purchase you make at Jamba Juice will be donated to the Castle Rock Community Club. 

The swipecards are free and are available at the school office.  Pick up a few and pass them along.  Give them to your family, friends, and neighbors so that they too can help our school.

Use your swipecard
with these specials!
The swipecards work at all participating Jamba Juice locations.  Here are some near you:
