Mississippi Walk-a-Thon for Technology
This annual fundraiser is a highly anticipated event at Mississippi! All students and staff walk the school grounds, wearing grade-level colors and proudly displaying classroom banners. Students raise money ahead of time, using collection envelopes received in Thursday folders. All money raised in the Walk-a-Thon goes toward technology purchases for our school! Money has been used for laptops, Promethean boards, slates to use with the boards, Chromebooks, and more!
Box Tops for Education
Box Tops for Education is a very easy way to earn money for our school that adds up fast! Just clip Box Tops from participating products and bring them into school on monthly Box Tops Collection Days, or drop them in the large collection box in the Link at anytime. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) sends home a Box Tops collection sheet each month in Thursday folders, where collected Box Tops can be easily attached. Another way to earn money is by earning eBoxTops when you shop online.
To learn more about eBoxTops or anything about the program or participating products, visit the Box Tops for Education website
. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents, so they add up quickly. In the last few years, we have earned about $3,000-$3,800 annually through our Box Tops collections! That's about 30,000-38,000 clipped Box Tops each year. Way to go, Mississippi community!

You can sign up to be a taste tester, and designate Mississippi as the nonprofit benefitting from your time and money earned.
