When shopping online, consider going to boxtops4education.com, designate Deer Creek-Lamont Elementary School, and choose a store from the site’s list. By doing this, the school can gain cash for coupons from the stores to spend on books and other supplies. More than 50 stores recently have been added to the site’s list.
The elementary school still is collecting physical Box Tops for Education. Box Tops can be sent with a child to school, or taken to either school’s office.
