Box Tops for Books

Recently, the Box Tops Program decided to go Digital!  For now, students may continue to bring in regular Box Tops to their homeroom teacher.  Parents, we also need for you to download the new Box Top App. as well.  Please Choose "Williamsburg City School" from the list.  Receipts are then scanned and checked for participating products and our school is awarded money for books.  

Thank you for your participation in our contest this year! Our goal is to raise $1000 for New Books!
