With the enthusiastic support of principals, parents and students, East Islip’s Box Tops for Education program submitted record numbers of box tops during the last school year. As a result, PTA representative Anne-Marie Orgera, who coordinates efforts for the program at both John F. Kennedy and Timber Point, was named Box Tops Coordinator of the Year.

In the Box Tops Super Heroes contest, Timber Point submitted the highest number of Box Tops since the school started collecting them, while JFK’s Box Tops cereal box collection container was featured on the Box Tops website and both schools garnered special notices in a Box Tops T-shirt contest.

“Box Tops in East Islip had an amazing year,” said Orgera. “As a coordinator, I always try to make collecting fun, and part of the fun was entering as many contests as we could. It was a surprise and honor to win Coordinator of the Year, but I did not do it alone. The kids are the real stars. Their smiling faces and excitement are what made it all worthwhile.”
