BIG Changes to Box Tops Coming

The current Box Tops program is making some big changes.  They are going digital, meaning no more clipping, checking expiration dates and remembering to send them to school.  When you purchase participating products, you will scan your store receipt (within 14 days of purchase) with your mobile phone thru the Box Tops Mobile app (available in your app store or google play).  It will automatically calculate the earnings for our school and you will see real-time earnings for our school.  Simply set up an account with a user name and password.  Be sure to select Montessori School of Schenectady.

If you still have the old unexpired box tops at home, you can still send them into us.

For more information on the changes, please refer to the Box Tops website.
