Box Top Changes - Cumberland is still collecting Box Tops for Education and we are grateful for your support. Each Box Top collected is worth 10 cents back to our school. The program is transitioning from the physical box tops, to using the app to scan your store receipts. It's easy to collect, when you have the app. We will still be collecting the paper box tops until the transition period ends. That means we can double our earnings during this time. Thank you so much for your continued support of Cumberland School. Click here to access more information and download the free app.
