First results of the 2016 Box Tops Challenge.

Starting with 6th grade...fewer than 100 Box Tops separate the top five. Here are the totals: 5th place, Steinen, 137 Box Tops; 4th place, Stratton, 150; 3rd place, Jones, 176; 2nd place, Bunting, 191; and in the lead, Jennings with 220.

As a group, 7th grade has collected the most Box Tops so far. Fewer than 200 Box Tops separate 4th through 1st place. In 4th place, French, 348 Box Tops; 3rd, O'Rourke, 386; 2nd, Lear, 408; and in 1st place with 544 Box Tops, Palic.

Even though the 8th grade has submitted the fewest Box Tops as a group, the closest contest is among the top three advisories in that grade. Third place is Remphrey with 100; 2nd is Cippolini with 119; and the 8th grade leader is Sordi with 121.



Patton Middle School families who use the Target Red Card Program have less than four months to "shop till you drop" to benefit our school. After 19 years, Target is discontinuing the program as of May 14, 2016. Target will provide bonus funds to schools based on how much their Red Card families shop between now and the end of the program. So take your friends, neighbors, and extended family on  a Target shopping spree before May 14. (Mother's Day is May 8...)
