Thank you
Thank you

Thank you so much for an AMAZING year of fundraising! Our used uniform sale brought in $923.90 and our concessions another $428.70!! Thank you for helping us round out the year with a great day!

As we are finishing up our books, we have raised $101,969 this year!  This is incredible! Thank you for your hard work and support! The funds raised have helped in many ways: Classroom teachers purchased needed items to enhance learning and classroom organization, teachers got to attend conferences, the awesome staff at ACS had a super fun week of appreciation, and our electives program is now off to a great start, just to name a few! We couldn’t have done this without YOU! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

Shop with ScripScrip

Do you like to shop? Do you plan to buy gift cards for teachers and staff during Staff Appreciation Week?  Consider using Scrip Cards, and earn money for ACS while you shop! When you buy a Scrip card, you will receive a gift card from the retailer for your purchased amount, and the school will receive a percentage of your purchase.  Use Scrip gift cards for your everyday purchases. Now is the perfect time to start using Scrip.

You can order two ways,

  1. Enroll at shopwithscrip.com, use the enrollment code 5882A46242211, and set up a PrestoPay account.
  2. Stop by the front desk, and pick up an order form.  Fill it out, return it with a check, and we will place the order for you.

Delivery:  Due to the fact that the PTO covers the cost of shipping, we only order cards once a month, on the first Friday.  All orders must be in by 12 on Friday morning to be included in that month’s order.   Cards will be delivered the following week.

Retailers:  There are hundreds of Scrip retailers, including but not limited to Amazon, Starbucks, Panera, Target, Gap, iTunes, Bath and Body Works, Lowe’s and Delta.  Some of these retailers offer special small denomination gift cards for the holidays.  This is a perfect gift for teachers, trash men, postal workers, or friends and family.

If you have any questions, please email Jeannie Reddan at txreddan@msn.com.  Our next order will be placed on April 5th.

Shoparoo

ACS is now partnering with Shoparoo to bring you another FREE and EASY way to raise money for ACS.  Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy.  The free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yes, it’s that simple. No more cutting labels, selling door to door, or time-consuming coordinating. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila…Just shop, snap, earn!

Get started today:

  1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
  2. Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts – shop anywhere, buy anything!
  3. The first 20 supporters at our school will earn an extra $1 donation from Shoparoo for their first receipt!
  4. Earn even more Roo Points, or cash donations, by inviting others to join using your personal referral code.
  5. You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!

We currently have 38 supporters.  Last year we earned $149.60 with only 12 active supporters. Imagine what we could do with all of ACS supporting this cause!  See attached flyer.

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo – the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money. Check out shoparoo.com to learn more about this awesome app!  For questions, please contact Jeannie Reddan at txreddan@msn.com.

AmazonSmile FAQs:

How does my organization receive the donations?
Each quarter, the AmazonSmile Foundation makes donations to eligible charitable organizations by electronic funds transfer. Donations will be transferred approximately 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter. To account for Product returns, a portion of the quarterly donations will be withheld until

the next donation cycle, subject to any reduction due to returns from prior quarters. See the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement for more details.

How does AmazonSmile work?
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.

What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?
The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.

For any questions regarding the AmazonSmile Program, please contact Jeannie Reddan at txreddan@msn.com.  We are always looking for new opportunities to offer free and easy ways to help support ACS.  We hope AmazonSmile meets your needs.
