Calling all Box Tops

Calling all Box Tops! It's time to send them all in so we can make our fall submission. The library would like to remind you that we collect Box Tops twice a year & benefit greatly from each and every Box Top clipped--every little bit counts! Also, Box Tops are going DIGITAL -- please download the app, choose "Jefferson Academy Secondary" as your designated charity & scan your receipts! It's easier than ever to support our library every time you shop! You may continue to bring in clipped box tops until they are all phased out. See their website for more information. Thanks for your support! 


Enjoy the long weekend!
