Osceola’s Box Top Tournament
Osceola will have a Box Top collection competition beginning October 23rd and concluding on October 27th. Osceola’s top collector per grade level will be rewarded for their contributions to our school. Students will earn a “PAWsome” bracelet for each complete sheet turned in. Sheets must have student’s name, grade level, and teacher before being turned in to the office.
This year we will have quarterly competitions. Box Tops is one of our best fundraisers for our school and we want to continue that success this year.
