Please DO NOT bring in Box Tops before February.

How to participate:
1) Box Tops are located on many name brand product packaging such as General Mills cereal, Lysol cleaner, Hefty trash bags, and MANY more. Recycle the box, bring the Box Top in!
2) Cut out and collect as many Box Tops as possible at home or from friends, family and neighbors. 
3) Put your Box Tops in an old envelope, bag or rubber band.
Helpful hints:
Please count the number of box tops and write the total number of tops on the outside of the envelope/bag- this saves volunteer counters time!    
* Make sure NOT to cut off the expiration date. 
* Please check box tops before turning them in and make sure they are not expired.  The earliest date of eligible Box Tops is 3/1/2020. We cannot get any money for our school with expired tops. (i.e. NO box tops with 2019 or earlier dates)

REMEMBER: Box Tops are transitioning to be  digital and you can now scan your receipt using a mobile app. They are fading out of cut off Box Tops. Note to our seasoned collectors, do not be frustrated with lower numbers available. 😉

Sylvan Park Social Earnings

Better late than never! We wanted to let you know about the great success of the Sylvan Park Social this year. The fundraising effort netted over $11,000. Those funds will go into the PTO’s operating budget. The PTO uses that money to support the children, staff, and community of Sylvan Park throughout the year. Thanks to all of the many parent volunteers and teachers who made this year’s event such a success. A special shout out goes to the solicitations team for securing over 140 auction items! And to Lizzie Williams and Sarah Grace for spearheading this year’s art projects.   

Save the Date: PTM Game Night

Join fellow Sylvan Park families for a potluck and game night at Preston Taylor Ministries Tuesday, DATE at 6 pm. This night is always a hit and a great opportunity to get to know each other outside of the school setting. PTO provides a main dish and each grade will be asked to bring a particular side item. Stay tuned for further details!
