Box Tops Collection

HMS is collecting Box Tops. Money received from Box Tops will go to the Student Council Fund, which helps to pay for things such as Spirit Day prizes along with the end-of-year celebration dunk tank and ice cream truck. Student Council has no designated funds, so every Box Top helps! There is a clear plastic collection jar in the Main Office.
