Back to School: PTA continues to collect labels

The Century School PTA will be hard at work collecting labels again this year.

The PTA will continue to collect Box Tops, Campbell's UPCs, Kemps milk caps and proof of purchase seals (this program will be discontinued on Nov. 1, 2012 but the items can be sent to the school until then), Land O' Lakes milk caps, Coborn's Labels for Learning receipts, J&B Foods Our Family UPCs, Fast Fixn's, Sunny D, and Tyson's labels.

The money collected from the Box Tops for Education goes to the Century School Media Center. It is used to buy new books for the library. In the last 11 years, more than $25,000 has been given to the library. The money from the other labels is used to buy school supplies for teachers and students to use throughout the school year.

PTA members say people would be truly amazed as to how much the supply closet is used. Remember that every single label makes a difference. Send in labels with your child, grandchild, neighbor or friend. The classrooms that collect the most labels are treated to a classroom party.

If you don't have anyone in the school district, please drop the items off at the Century School office or local church. Collection containers will be placed in some of the local churches this school year.

The Century PTA, staff, and students would like to express gratitude to the community for supporting the label collection project.
