BoxTops for Education
VMS participates in the BoxTops for Education program that helps provide funds for our school. We receive $.10 for each Box Top we collect and turn in, and we can also get bonus BoxTops through a variety of store shopping cards promotions. If you shop at Kroger, Ingles, or Food City, please register and link your shopping card to our school!

If you like to shop online, you can register at the BoxTops main page by entering our zip code (37885) and selecting VMS from the list of schools. Once registered, if you login and click on the eMarketplace, VMS will benefit from any items purchased online through the marketplace from retailers like Old Navy, Walmart, Target, Sears, Kohl's, and many others. VMS will earn 20 bonus BoxTops and eBoxTops with every online purchase you make!
