A little background on Box Tops!

Have you been saving up those Box Tops for Education? Well, send ’em in! Just make sure to pay attention to the expiration dates (we can’t accept expired ones) and clip as close to the edge as possible. Then, place them in a plastic bag marked with your child’s full name and teacher’s name! New to the Box Top game? We understand: watch this video for more information!

Amazon Smile Makes Us Smile!

Amazon Smile really helped our fundraising efforts last year. The concept is simple: Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of an item to Florence if it’s purchased through Amazon Smile. Your Prime benefits are available on Amazon Smile and the products are all the same. Just visit Amazon Smile, locate PTA Texas Congress 5710 Florence Elementary, and help your school earn while you shop! As always, THANK YOU for all of your support!

Last year, we raised $3000… just by shopping!

A little effort goes a long way in helping earn money for our school, so we truly appreciate all who participated last year in Kroger Community Rewards, Box Tops for Education and Amazon Smile!

And, if you haven’t re-registered for Kroger Community Rewards for this year, please do so! Just visit and create an account using your email address and Kroger card number. Then select “Florence Elementary School (83369)” as your Community Rewards recipient. Then, go stock up on juice boxes and cheese sticks!

Don’t waffle (fry) on this decision!

Simply head to the Keller Chick-Fil-A tonight from 5 until 8 p.m. to earn money for our school! Dine in, curbside, and drive-thru all count towards Florence– but only if you mention that you’re from our school (so don’t forget!). This was a very successful Spirit Night last year, and we’re hoping this year will be just as fun… and delicious! See you there!
