Boxtops for Education

Rice Partnerships

Rice PTA participates in several “Partnership” programs. These programs offer easy ways for Rice to earn points/credit/equipment for the school. Any of these labels can be put in the can in the front office—remember to put your child’s grade level on the bag.

Box Tops for Education!

We encourage Rice families to help our school by sending in your Box Tops labels. Please look for the labels on the items you use (like Kleenex boxes, Ziplocs, cereals, etc.) and send them in a plastic bag with child’s grade on it. There is a collection bin for Box Tops in the school office.


Support Rice PTA with your TOM THUMB purchases!

Tom Thumb’s Good Neighbor Program is an easy way to support our PTA. Every time you shop at Tom Thumb a portion of your purchases will be donated to the Rice Middle School PTA if you have designated our PTA on your Rewards Card. Families can have up to three charities designated however, the total applicable purchases will be equally divided between the charities selected.

To sign-up for the Good Neighbor Program, or to change your current designated organization, stop by any Courtesy Booth at a Tom Thumb store. You will need to complete a Reward Application and indicate that Rice Middle School PTA #8022 is your designated charity. Our PTA has the potential to earn over $10,000 a year if all of our families would take a few moments to designate our PTA on their Reward Card!


Help Rice Middle School PTA by shopping at Kroger. Present the attached letter with the Rice Middle School PTA barcode to your cashier upon checkout. After they have scanned your Kroger Plus Card you will be enrolled for the current year of the Kroger Neighbor to Neighbor Donation Program.

Every Time you shop at Kroger and use your enrolled Kroger Plus Card, Kroger will contribute a percentage of eligible purchased to Neighbor to Neighbor Fund. If you enrolled your Kroger Plus Card last school year, you need to re-enroll this school year.
