 TEACHER APPRECIATION FUND

Remember the TAF all year.

  • Save your Box Tops.
  • Use Manna cards.
  • Try the Benefit and Shoparoo apps. 

Imagine if 1-20% of your store

purchases was donated to SJA at no additional cost to you!  Please participate in these programs, which  exclusively benefit the Teacher Appreciation Fund.

MANNA GIFT CARDS 
Buy gift cards from SJA's Mana program for all your gifts, as well as your regular grocery and gas purchases.  Click here for the list of available gift cards and the order form.  Special thanks to Dianna Sheehan for coordinating this program. 
BENEFIT MOBILE APP E-GIFT CARDS
This is the electronic version of Manna cards.   To get started, you need to (1) download the Benefit Mobile App, (2) register your account by providing payment information, and then (3) select the SJA Teacher Appreciation Fund.  It will take a few days for your registration to clear.  But once you are registered, you have instant access!  You can download an e-gift card while you're in line at the store, or you can order an e-gift card as a last-minute gift.  Use this link for more info or to download the app.


SHOPAROO APP
Shop - Snap - Upload - Earn.  To get started, download the Shoparoo App and select SJA School.  Shoparoo will donate to SJA when you shop at any store, snap a picture of your receipt, and use the app to upload it to Shoparoo.  The upload takes mere seconds on your smart phone.  SJA will earn nearly 1% of all grocery purchases.  Click here for more information or to download the app.
BOX TOPS
SJA is always collecting Box Tops!  Each Box Top earns ten cents for SJA.  Be sure to clip all your Box Tops, and send them to school.  
Thank you to all of the SJA families who donated so generously to the Christmas Appeal for Teachers and Staff.  Each  teacher and staff member was given a $500 bonus because of your generosity!

December was an extremely busy month full of many PSO events! 

It started with Breakfast with Santa run by Kelly Harvey, Maura Fitzgerald, Katie Jenio and Taylor Ftikas.  The event was a huge success with record numbers and tons of fun had by all! Thank you to those women who ran it and to all of the volunteers who assisted!

The Women's Christmas Luncheon which was run by Mary Ginley, Heather Forster, Kristi Schultz and Meredith Bivens was  lovely event!  From the awesome vendors and baked items to the delicious lunch and the precious Christmas Program performed by our children- it is one of our most wonderful traditions!  Thank you also to all of you who came to assist with this event!  

Finally, a big thank you to Molly Inzitari who coordinated the Christmas Staff Party this year!  Our wonderful staff deserves a special night and we appreciate you making this happen!

We know it is such a busy time of year with so much to take care of so please know how much all of your efforts are appreciated!
