Box Top Collection

The Box Tops for Education program is switching to an app-based receipt scanning system. If you purchase products with a Box Top, you may scan your store receipt to earn funds for BE. To start earning money for BE with Box Tops:

1. Download the Box Tops App and create an account or log in using Facebook or Google

2. Select Bethesda Elementary as your school

3. Scan your receipt when you buy items with the BoxTops$ for Education seal and the app will automatically credit BE for your purchases.

Check out the Box Tops For Education website for more information.

Some products are still on the shelves with the old Box Top seal that you cut out. You may still send those to school with your student as before, but please check the expiration date on the seal first!

Register Grocery Cards and Earn Money for Our School

A portion of your purchase can be given back to support PTA program when you register your Harris Teeter rewards card. Last year, we had 89 participants and earned over $1200, so taking a few minutes to link your card makes a big difference--thank you to everyone who participated!! It costs nothing, and it’s a quick and easy way to raise money for the school. Registering your cards DOES NOT affect your personal rewards or discounts, and does not require you to do anything other than shop as usual. Find out how to shop and earn for BE or contact Karen Trackman with questions.




The Harris Teeter "Together in Education" program started August 1st which begins earning money for BE when we use our linked VIC reward cards.  But, we have to re-link our VIC card to Bethesda Elementary each August.  

Giant ended their A+ for Schools Rewards program this year. 

School Store Open on Fridays 8:20-9:00am

The store offers school supplies, seasonal treasures and other fun, little goodies. Most items are priced between .25 and $3.00.  If your child would like to do some early morning shopping, please send him or her to school with a small amount of money to spend.


The School Store will be open one Friday a month TBD throughout the school year. It is run by 4th grade students and their parents and provides an opportunity for the children to develop their business skills while raising money for the school.
