Buffalo Trail Be Kind Campaign
This year, Buffalo Trail has decided to take some time to focus on 
giving back to the community and embracing this time of year to show a 
little extra kindness to those in need. Each grade level and our IA team have 
selected an organization to support by collecting needed items to donate at the 
end of the campaign . Any student can donate to any cause.

Collection will run December 6th - 18th. Bins will be located in the main hallway.

Kindergarten: Will be collecting canned ‘no sugar added’ fruits and low-sodium or 
‘no salt added’ vegetables for Metro Caring.

1st Grade: Will be collecting craft items such as markers, crayons, colored pencils, Play-Doh,
stickers, and art kits for Children’s Hospital Colorado.

2nd Grade: Will be collecting puppy pads, paper towels, soft fleece blankets, and stuffing-free
pet toys for Pawsitive Restorations.

3rd Grade: Will be collecting toiletries such as toothpaste, razors, deodorant, lotion, body
wash, shampoo and conditioner (both full and travel sized) for The Gathering Place, a local
women’s shelter.

4th Grade/ILC: Will be collecting new unwrapped toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots

5th Grade: Will be collecting new socks for the Sock It To ‘Em campaign.

Box tops for Education

Box tops is now moving towards an electronic format.  The phase out has started and during
this phase out we can actually receive double!  The way to do this is continue to clip the old
box tops.  The new ones say “scan your receipt”. However, if the product you purchase has a
box top you clip, you can clip it AND scan your receipt! We will get double credit!  Continue to
clip valid, non expired box tops and place in a baggie.  Send to school with your child and have
them place them in the Box Top Bot.
Please take advantage of this new scanning program, follow this link:
The app is available for Apple and Android.  Just search for Box Tops for Education.
Place the app on your phone, when signing up choose Buffalo Trail Elementary as your school.
Scan your receipt.  It’s that simple. If there is a BOX TOP product on the receipt, the app will find it
So we will not be able to accept receipts at the school. Thank you!!!  

Many Ways to Give
Here are a few simple ways you can give back to our school. It's a small act that can
make a huge difference.

Box Tops - Trim when available, place in baggies and feed to the Box Top Bot inside
