TRUSSVILLE — The goal for the Paine Elementary Campus this school year is to raise $10,000 by collecting box tops.
The campus’ volunteer box tops coordinator, Cissie Harrington, said Paine Primary and Paine Intermediate schools last year earned more than $9,400 by clipping and saving box tops, which ranked the schools in the top five in Alabama.
Each box top is worth 10 cents when a school redeems it from Box Tops for Education. Box tops should be clipped and turned in to the student’s teacher.
Box tops are collected all school year. Each grade, however, has a contest, with the winning classes in each receiving a pizza party. Contest deadlines are Oct. 15 and Feb. 11, 2015.
