Our Bird Habitat Needs Your Help!

On Saturday, September 14th from 8:30-2:30 we will be working on the final phase of the Bird Habitat project at the front of the school. Ben Theroux, a member of Boy Scout Troop 101 in Foster, will be completing this project as part of his Eagle Scout Project. We are asking for volunteers to help with this work.  Plans include removing the sod, laying weed-block, wood chips, and more plantings, painting, as well as installing a fence in front of this area. The completion of this project will enhance the school grounds while also creating a habitat for all to learn in and enjoy.

If you are interested in volunteering please let me know by signing up on Sign Up Genius using this link  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090A44ADAC2DA1F85-final . A variety of times are available to fit your schedule and availability. Any time you have will be greatly appreciated. Any questions please contact rebecca.payette@paineschool.org 

Exciting Changes with the BOX TOPS for Education Program!

Box Tops program has been planning some big changes that are coming this year and I wanted you to be the first to know! Over the next few months you’ll begin to see a new way to earn cash for our school. There was a lot of feedback about the current app and Box Tops has been hard at work building a NEW and improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app which features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school’s earnings online. No clipping required!

     Here’s how you can HELP! If you see this Box Tops icon on packages, you can earn Box Tops with the current Box Tops Bonus App. Simply download the app, select the bonus offer and scan your receipt to earn. Click here for more info in the parent letter and here to see a list of participating products.

         However, continue to clip the “original” Box Tops that you find on participating products and save to submit them to the school.  These will still be valid for several years while the new program is put into place.  If you haven’t already done so take the time to sign up for the Box Tops App so you can stay up to date on these new changes taking place.  DOWNLOAD THE APP AVAILABLE ON ANY MOBILE DEVICE     

Let’s make it a GREAT YEAR!
