Box Tops for Education

The Fall Box Tops Challenge is on!  The Box Tops program helps us earn free money for our school.  Clip Box Tops off participating products or download the app and simply scan receipts.  The class that collects the most will be celebrated during Ms. Seidl's Wednesday announcements.  

The contest has been extended to run through February 22, 2021. 

Raise Money While Purchasing School/Office Supplies

Simply make a purchase of qualifying school supplies at Office Depot/Office Maxx, provide VHE's school ID (70109360) at checkout - either in store or online, and VHE will receive 5% back in credits for FREE supplies!


This year, VHE is the designated school for Office Depot/Office Maxx in Madison.  Now through October 31st, round up or make a donation of any amount at the register, and they will pass that amount along as a credit to our school.  Spread the word!
