Our school is participating in the SchoolStore program this year. This online program helps our school earn cash without students selling door-to-door, collecting money or delivering products, and is similar to the Amazon “no-cost” program that the PTO already participates in. Over 400 merchants have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through SchoolStore.com. Online merchants include Sears, Target, and WalMart.com. See the back of this letter for a list of participating vendors.
To shop and support our school, simply go to www.schoolstore.com and select our school. You can begin your online shopping right away at all the participating stores, including Barnes and Noble, the Disney Store, Kohls and all of the retailers mentioned above. This is a great way to do your holiday shopping AND to support the school without having to spend an extra penny! And since you are shopping online, you won’t need to brave the crowds at the mall!!!
In January our school will participate in the SchoolStore Email Campaign. Your participation is the key to a successful program for our school. Your child will come home with a parent letter requesting you to help them enter email addresses of friends and family. SchoolStore will contact them directly, asking them to support your school by using the website. For entering just 3 email addresses, your child can choose a prize.
Starting in January, participating families can enter our school into the $100,000 Playground Giveaway Contest when they send email invitations to family and friends to shop at your SchoolStore. Each email invitation is an entry, and your chances to win increase with every invitation sent. In addition to your school winning the fully-installed $100,000 Playground, the winning entry will earn the family $10,000 and the homeroom teacher $5,000 for the classroom.
Thank you in advance for your families’ support of our school! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Holiday Shopping!
