Dear Members of the SMS Community,
On Sunday, September 7th, several SMS families joined the faculty in attending a "Back to School Mass" at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph, and what a beautiful liturgy it was! As you enter SMS, you will be greeted by the exquisite banner that was carried in the entrance procession. This will be available for years to come whenever we need such a representation of our school. Thank you, Mrs. Lori Oleasz, for this beautiful work of your hands! Two of our students, Alex Bourassa (grade 5) and Andrew Bulalo (grade 4) had the honor of having an active role in the liturgy. Alex read a petition, and Andrew received a gift for the school from Archbishop Blair. How proud I was of both of them, as well as of all the SMS children in attendance. The gift, a candle, that Andrew received is now displayed in the display case and will be used throughout the year at various functions. It serves to remind us to follow Jesus, the Light of the world.
DO YOU SHOP ON AMAZON?
Who doesn’t? Now you can shop on Amazon and help SMS at the same time. Simply go to our website (www.stmarynewington.com) and click on the Amazon link at the bottom of the home page. The link will bring you directly to Amazon and SMS will automatically receive 1% of your purchase amount! With the holidays coming, please pass this along to all of your friends and family! It’s so easy, you don’t need a code or to register, simply connect from our website!
AND…..If you purchase Amazon gift cards from our Scrips program, and use those to shop Amazon through our website, that adds up to 4% of your purchase for SMS! (1% for using the link and 3% back on the Scrips card)
YES, SCRIPS IS BACK!
We are continuing the Scrips program and your child will be bringing home a merchant list and ordering info very soon!
What is SCRIPS? SCRIPS is a gift card purchasing program that gives rebate to SMS for every card purchased, AT NO COST TO YOU! Simply purchase gift cards to use in your everyday shopping, or for gifts, of course!
For example, do you shop at Barnes and Noble? I am constantly adding Nook Books to my device. So, I purchase Barnes and Noble cards through our Scrip Program and use those online instead of my debit or credit card. SMS then gets 9% of the gift card amount!
Look over the Merchant List and see what stores you frequent. If you are at Starbucks everyday, 6% of your purchase could come to SMS by using a gift card purchased here. Maybe we shouldn’t call them gift cards, but prepaid shopping cards!
HAVE A TARGET RED CARD?
Go to www.target.com/tcoe and register your card today. SMS will receive 1% of your purchase ANY TIME YOU USE YOUR RED CARD! Use our School ID: 117295. SMS has received over $3,000 from Target with only 17 cards registered! It really adds up!
