The PAC is always looking for new ways to support our school. Listed below are the current 2016-2017 initiatives planned. If you have questions, comments, new ideas or simply wish to help, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Baseball/Spinner’s Game Night
North Street students’ family and friends may purchase reduced price Spinners tickets for a fun night out. This event occurs in June just as school is getting out.
Help us earn cash by bringing in empty inkjets, toner cartridges, cell phones and small electronics, such as small digital cameras, MP3 players, GPS systems and laptops for recycling. These items are recycled in an environmentally responsible manner and our school benefits from payments for these items. It keeps these electronics out of landfills and helps us fund teacher requests and arts and enrichment programs at the North Street. Items should be sent to school in a zippered plastic bag. We will also have a green bin in the cafeteria where parents and guardians can place these items when they visit the school. In the past, parents have brought cartridges from their places of employment, local businesses, and their own homes. For more information, go to www.fundingfactory.com.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Please help the Dewing Go Green. We have a Paper Retriever bin located in the back parking lot of the school, near the Cafeteria entrance. Won’t you please consider dropping off your old newspapers, junk mail, magazines, catalogs, school papers, etc. The bin is ‘open’ 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please no cardboard and no plastic bags.
If you do, the North Street School wants them ! We have partnered with Recycle That in a fundraising program that accepts used books, DVDs and CDs. You can drop them off in the new Recycle That fundraising receptacle located in the back parking lot near the cafeteria entrance. Help the PAC raise funds, and clean out your book shelves at the same time! All proceeds to fund the North Street PAC, which supplies much-needed programs and supplies for our school. Unload all your books into the receptacle any time 24/7.
Family Dine Out Nights
Dine out with your family at local restaurants on designated North Street/ Dewing School fundraising nights, and help raise money for our school! Details will be posted on-going!
General Mills Box Tops
North Street School will receive 10 cents for every qualifying General Mills cereal or snack product Box Top we receive. A qualifying Box Top is the top flap of any General Mills product which carries a “Box Tops for Education” symbol. In addition to all General Mills cereals, look for Box Tops symbols on all Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks & Roll-ups, Nature Valley Granola Bars & Yogart multi packs, Lloyd’s Barbeque Buckets and many more products. This program will run through the entire school year, and will help to raise extra funds for the North Street School. There will be a collection box in the main lobby for parent’s convenience. It’s easy to participate in this program. Simply send in qualifying Box Tops to school with your children or wait for our monthly contests to try to win a prize! Please ask your friends and relatives to save them for you too. North Street’s P.A.C. organizes the collection and redemption process, forwarding them to General Mills for payment.
Gift Card Program
This year’s gift card vendor is “Scripts”. In the late fall, the P.A.C. offers the North Street Community a chance to purchase gift cards to various stores and restaurants. North Street receives between 2.5% and 20% cash back profit to help support student activities not funded by our school’s budget.
