Donors Choose Projects
Ms. Penny Ramsey's Timpson Elementary School pre-k class had two projects funded through Donors Choose over the summer. The items that she requested were a light table and manipulatives to use with the light table. Also, a digital microscope and a digital camera/projector that will both hook up to her Smartboard. She also received a complete specimen kit and slides to help build science in her Pre-K class. A HUGE Thank you to Mrs. Robin (Crawford) Connell of Quick Stop for funding half of a project for Ms. Penny's Pre-K class. A picture is attached showing students using the donated items.

TES Collecting Box Tops
Timpson Elementary School receives money based on the number of Box Tops we collect and submit each year. In the 2014/15 school year our school earned over $1,369 through this program! With your help, we can earn even more for our school this year. It is a very easy three step process. 1. Clip Box Tops from specially marked products. 2. Turn in the Box Tops to the elementary school office. 3. Then the School receives a check. You can simply tape or glue 25 box tops to a sheet a paper and bring them to the Timpson Elementary School office or mail them to Freida Platt P.O. 370 Timpson Texas 75975 If you want to place Box Tops in an envelope or Ziploc bag and bring them by the office that is fine, also. You can also give them to any Timpson Elementary student and they can bring them to the school. Please trim box tops without cutting off expiration dates. Collecting Box Tops for Timpson Elementary School is very simple. Clip Box Tops from your favorite grocery products. Look for the pink Box Tops coupon on brands like Cheerios®, Betty Crocker®, Huggies®, Cottonelle®, Pillsbury®, Ziploc®, Kleenex®, Hefty® and many more.
