Jackson Elementary School and the A2 Charter School are stepping up their efforts to turn 'trash' into cash for their schools and are asking the community for help. This school year, the schools will be using several collection programs to raise money. Each program will run year-round. Individuals and businesses are asked to help save, collect, and return these items to Jackson Elementary and A2 Charter Schools.
The collection programs, and how they work, include: Box Tops for Education: Pink coupons are found on many Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Ziploc, Saran, and Scott products. The school receives 10¢ for each coupon redeemed. Individuals can also register with the Box Tops for Education website and take advantage of online coupons for these products. Online shoppers can start at the Box Tops Marketplace and a percentage of each online purchase is credited to Jackson and A2 Charter School as well.
Specially labeled caps from Kemps Nickels for Schools or Kids, Caps, and Cash from Morning Glory and Golden Guernsey milk are each worth 5¢. Kwik Trip's Milk Moola program also pays 5¢ for any specially labeled bag top, milk cap, or beverage cap.
Tyson's Project A+ for Schools pays 24¢ for each red bag top or box end panel with the A+ logo on it. (It must be the full top or end panel, not just the A+ logo).
Printer, FAX, and copier cartridges are being collected and recycled to support the computer lab.
The schools are also collecting the UPC's from Campbell's products. The schools can use these UPC's to select instructional items from the Campbell's Catalog. The program requires the UPC, or in some cases the plastic cap, from the products.
Lastly, the schools are collecting McDonald's receipts. McDonald's offers our schools choices to redeem them for playground equipment, books, or other instructional items.
Any individual or business that is able to participate is encouraged to call the Jackson/A2 office at 459-3573 for more information or to schedule a 'trash' pick-up. An information flyer with all the details is also available on the Jackson School website: www.sheboygan.k12.wi.us/jackson
