– Please allow a little time for parking.
– Many area restaurants (i.e. the Chick-fil-A drive-thru!) will be busy, so keep that in mind if you’re picking up food.

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!
