My niece said the box tops they collect are going toward buying the cheerleaders uniforms. I thought the money was to help the whole school, not just an elite few. Going to start sending my to Christian Academy.

We pay for the cheer uniforms. The BT money must have paid for our zebra boots & bags and the pink Pom Poms they used in October.

If your kid is anything like you, sounds like a bad idea to me!

My daughter goes to LaFollette Middle and was telling me a few days ago that in one of her classes some of the students have to share computers. Wouldn't the money from the box tops be better spent on more computers for the entire school instead of cheer accessories?

To Ummm, your post didn't make any sense. Are you saying that helping Christian Academy is a bad idea?

No I'm saying to the first poster that a true Christian would not worry about taking about box tops and how they are spent, do you think a good Christian person would get on a gossip site and say that? Like that school is any better? Nah nobody that has kids that go to school there went there themselves is was not open, and furthermore people send there kids there thinking they are gonna be sheltered from the real world and it drives me nuts when they think there child is any better than any ones else kid. It's not the school it's the parents job even the good book tells you that. Do you think if the lord was here today he would be concerned about how box tops are spent?

First of all, I didn't say I have a kid at LaFollette Middle or Christian Academy. Second, I didn't say Christian Academy is a better school. However, the box tops that they collect go toward benefiting everyone. Both of your posts are confusing and rambling, especially the last one. Sounds like a little green-eyed envy because some parents can send their children to private school.

No, I as a cheer mom, have NOT paid for everything. The cheerleaders did sell ads, etc to offset cost. And, other funds have been allocated from unknown sources.
well then

... okay? and so did you ask whoever teacher that told her, yourself? get the name of whoever's in charge of deciding that the box tops should go to cheerleading. I would confront whoever's in charge of allocating those box tops to cheerleader uniforms etc, and why it wasn't made clearly known that's what they are using them for, instead of letting people assume they were being used for the benefit for the whole school and not just one special group of kids that IMO is about LAST on the list of 'needy' as I can imagine, considering. Sounds to me they are misleading and underhanded in this case of asking for box tops donations attempting to label cheer leading as a 'needy cause'. I'd be pissed, if I were you, too.

donating them to whatever other school... sorry but no. not unless I could get clear verifiable info as to exactly WHAT/WHO those box tops are being used for specifically. sorry but these schools around here I just do not trust ... from school board on down the chain. better to donated directly to children/families you KNOW really need it, and receive it directly.
