Abitibi Newspaper and Magazine Recycling Program
The Abitibi Recycling Program is a very successful fundraiser for the PTO. We earn money for unwanted magazines, catalogs, newspapers. We would like to continue increasing our earnings.
Beginning November 1, 2008 we can now recycle phone books, paper back and hard back books, and clean flattened cardboard.
To contribute to this fundraiser, simply take those items to one of the green and yellow bins (called Abitibi Paper Retriever) located at the Lindenthal campus (grades K thru 6), the Middle School (corner of Troxler and 160 next to big shed) and also the High School. This is a great and easy way to help raise money for the PTO!

General Mills Box Tops
The PTO continues to participate in the General Mills "Box Tops for Education" Program. This has proven to be a very simple, but profitable fundraiser. Each year that we have participated, our totals have increased.
Simply clip the "Box Tops for Education" logo only and turn them into the office. We save them year-round, and send them into the company twice a year. Each box top is worth 10 cents. It doesn't sound like much, but they do add up! Also, ask friends, neighbors, and relatives to help by saving box tops for us.
And, remember the box tops aren't just found on boxes. They are also found on Pillsbury refrigerated rolls and biscuits, Yoplait multi-pack yogurt and Go-Gurt, Old El Paso products, Green Giant frozen vegetables, Pillsbury frozen breakfast items, Totino's frozen items, Gold Medal Flour, Bisquick products, Hamburger Helper, Kleenex, and many more!
Highland Primary and Highland Elementary will participate in a Box Tops contest which runs during the months of September through April each school year. Watch your PTO newsletter for details.
