Tewksbury students worked hard this year in the classroom, but they also worked hard with a grocery store chain to earn money for their school.

North Street School students worked with their sister school, the Dewing School, to earn about $1,500 in Stop & Shop A Plus Rewards during the 2013-14 school year. 

Students worked to collected Stop & Shop card numbers from their friends and families to earn cash that can be used for their arts and enrichment goals.

As a part of the fundraiser, families submit their Stop & Shop numbers and are entered into a raffle where they can win a gift card to the grocery store.

"Our families love the chance to help the school and are very excited with our contest every year," said North Street PAC chairman Carolyn Gaglione.

Points that are earned by families between August and March are collected and turned into cash, which is given directly to the school.

There will be registration opportunities for the program in the fall. For more details, visit www.stopandshop.com/aplus.

"We love the fact that we have been so successful even though we don’t have a Stop & Shop in our town," said volunteer coordinator Paige Impink. "So many of our families have relatives in other communities, even in other states where Stop & Shop operates. We benefit from every one of their purchases."
