Box Tops
The school rewards programs at Dominion are
 alive and well.  Please continue to send in your pink box tops, labels for education, and coke rewards.  Students can drop these off in the small white cans labeled "Box Tops" in the lobby near the front office.  These programs are an easy way for the school to earn money and supplies.    Thanks so much for your support! 
"In addition to our box top/coke/labels for education programs, our school has Publix Partner cards ready to be picked up at the front office.  Simple presenting this card to the cashier when you check out to be scanned raises money for our school.  Stop by the front office any time and pick up a card and thank you for helping our school!"
