Holiday Book Fair a Great Success!

Paine Primary decided to replace its Santa Picture Usborne Book Fair with a Family Night Scholastic Book Fair this year. Scholastic told us that if we sold more than $2,000 in books during this Family Night Fair, that they would give us an additional 5% profit on our fair from September, our Family Night Fair, AND our spring fair in March.

We are pleased to announce that we sold $4,400 worth of books - easily passing our goal of $2,000!!! Thank you for your continued support of our schools, your children's learning, and literacy, Trussville!!!

Library Split Continues...

Paine Primary continues to work on splitting the library collection for our 3 new schools next year - Paine Elementary, Cahaba Elementary, and Magnolia Elementary. About 9,000 books remain to be "highlighted" and "dotted," before we can begin the next phase of our library split - scanning barcodes into the new databases.

We welcome any volunteers - ANY day or time to help us in this endeavor. Please contact Mrs. Brockman if you have an hour or two that you would like to offer your help!
