 box tops

Attention CWE Parents and Students! 

We are excited to once again participate in the General Mills Box Tops for Education program!  With the help of all our CWE families we collect and submit Box Tops to the national Box Top program. CWE then receives 10 cents for every valid Box Top.  The money earned will be used to directly benefit the school.  This year based on a vote by parents and students during the Back to School Social event, we are going to use some of the money raised toward Outdoor and Indoor Recess items including STEM activities.  Please help us by clipping and submitting your saved Box Tops on the 25-space sheet posted here on the PTO website.  Don’t forget to ask your extended family, like Grandparents, to help clip and save Box Tops as well!  

To encourage as much participation in this program as possible the CWE PTO is sponsoring a fun quarterly drawing to win one of three Kindle Fire tablets!   For more information on the drawing and CWE Box Tops program please see our FAQs tab.


Remember Every Box Top Counts!

 favorite things

During the seasons of giving and special recognition, families often wonder what teachers and staff members want or need most.  

While no tangible gifts are ever expected, a list of classroom wishes and staff favorites are available to parents and students to make potential gift giving decisions simpler.

The "CWE Staff Favorite Things" spreadsheet can be viewed HERE.
