Science teachers seeking Box Tops for Education

To help provide a fun and education experience to the students in all science classes, Kimpton Middle School science teachers are asking readers to clip and send the Box Tops for Education found on many grocery items. Kimpton receives 10 cents for each of those Box Tops and more money on the Bonus Box Tops.

The seventh- and eighth-grade students benefitted from an extra $2,500 thanks to Box Tops and Recycling last year. Box tops can be mailed to Kimpton Middle School, Attn: Box Tops Coordinator, 380 N. River Road, Munroe Falls 44262.

Another way to assist the teachers is by dropping off all recyclable paper/junk mail in the paper retriever dumpsters in Kimpton's front parking lot. The school is paid by the pound for the donations.

All money received from Box Tops from Education and Abitibi Paper Retriever is used exclusively to provide science students with materials to use on projects and labs beyond that can be purchased with science fees.
