Did you know that every BOXTOP and every COKE CAP collected earns money for our school?   This summer we would like you to work hard to collect both.  The money we earn will go toward a basketball hoop on our K/1 playground!


BOXTOPS:  Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00.  If every child from Georgetown (approx 550) fills one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750.   Many thanks to Lori Simpson and all of you who are on her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers, and packers.  This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU!     Download your form here:  Summer Box Tops


COKE CAPS:  Super easy. Save the caps and go online to enter collection!  COKE WEBSITE  (   Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap.   Now you can recycle the cap.  No need to send it to school.
