Tapes for Education
Tapes for Education
09/20/2018
We have enrolled in a new program at Super Save in Raton! They’re offering an easy way to help our school earn supplies and equipment simply by saving your receipt and turning it in to the school! All you have to do is send us your register tapes dated August 15, 2018 and keep up the good work through March 31, 2019. The dollar amount of eligible items are then converted to points that we can spend at the end of the pro-gram period. We can use them to buy everything from pencils to electronics, crayons to playground equipment. You can submit receipts from any New Mexico, Colorado or Texas Lowe’s, Super Save and Food King stores. You can send them with any student or staff member or mail them to PO Box 275, Maxwell, NM 87728. Thank you for all you do to support our school. In addition to this new program, we also save Box Tops!
