Box Tops for Education Program

Castle Rock Elementary is proud to participate in the Box Tops for Education program! 

Participating is easy! Simply purchase products from your local grocer that have a Box Tops label, clip the label along the dotted lines, and submit to your child's teacher! Each Box Top is worth 10c to CRE. It's basically free money for our school just for using your preferred products! Box Tops can be found on a wide variety of foods including (but not limited to) Totino's Pizza, General Mills Cereals, Pillsbury products, and more. You can check out a complete list of participating products by clicking HERE

While 10c per Box Top may seem like a small amount, Box Tops add up quickly. Since CRE enrolled in the Box Tops for Education program, we have earned over $15,000! 

The CRE PTO will collect the Box Tops from the classrooms each month. The classroom with the most Box Tops collected at the end of each month will receive an extra PE class! 

For questions about the Box Top program or interest in volunteering to assist with the Box Top program here at CRE, please contact PTO President, Megan Greene

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
