PSO November Update

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.

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. 
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.

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.
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.
