Philadelphia Warriors will build College and Career Readiness while leading their community to Love the Purple and Live the Gold!

 Loudon County Schools will graduate college and career ready students through rigorous and relevant learning opportunities.
Box Tops for Education

It's Box Top collection time at Philadelphia!  

    Clipping and collecting Box Tops is another way we as Warriors can "Love the Purple and Live the Gold"!  Box Tops are an easy way to earn cash for our school.  Each Box Top is worth $0.10 and can be found on hundreds of products.  Parents, when submitting Box Tops please make sure to check the expiration date as expired Box Tops will not count towards our school's earnings.  We encourage parents to sign up  at to track our school's earnings, get coupons for Box Top products, find recipes, and enter for  chances to win bonus Box Tops.

    Our fall deadline for collecting is in mid-October.  We will be having a Fall Collection Contest to see which homeroom can collect the most Box Tops.  So Warriors, start clipping and thanks for supporting our school!  Together we can make a difference.
