Sandy Run Middle School Principal Denise Falconi urged students in a PTO email to collect and send in General Mills Box Tops and Campbell’s Labels for Education UPCs. Falconi said the PTO will be collecting the items and counting them next week.
From the email:
"In a time where the school district budget is tight, these Cash Back Programs are a great way to supplement the school's income," Falconi said. "If approximately half of our Sandy Run students, 500 students, collected just 5 Box Tops per month for a year and sent them in to school, Sandy Run would receive $3,000 from General Mills! Imagine how much we could earn if every family started collecting Box Tops and sending them in.”
The Upper Dublin School District is facing a budget crunch of several million dollars.
Upper Dublin Superintendent Michael Pladus will speak to the Sandy Run Middle School PTO March 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium, where he will discuss the budget.
Prior to that, the school board will hold a meeting on the budget Feb. 25 at 6 p.m. at the Cardinal Room at the high school.
