    Box Tops:
    Thanks to all of you for snipping box tops. NGES and NSS earned over $3,000 during the 2014-2015 school year! Please keep on snipping box tops so that we can earn cash for our schools! Look for Box Tops For Education and Bonus Certificates. Please be sure to check the expiration dates and that the dates are not cut off. Place box tops in zip lock bag with the number of box tops written on the outside of the bag and send it in to your child’s classroom. The grade that brings in the most box tops will win an extra recess!
