This year, Samantha Smith Elementary PTSA is collecting Box Tops to fund our school's programs. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Box Tops are worth 10 cents each and they quickly add up to real cash for our teachers to use in the classroom – directly impacting your student!
