WHAT WE DO:

The PTO's function is to encourage a warm, friendly environment and enhance communications among parents, students, teachers, staff, and administration of St. Mary Catholic School; increase parent and teacher participation by attending meetings and sharing time and talents; and promote goodwill and cooperation wthin the St. Mary community. 

 

HOW WE DO IT:

Our parents and teachers invest sweat equity, as well as monetary and in-kind donations, into fun events throughout the year.  The PTO also coordinates ongoing programs including the SCRIP program, Box Tops for Education, and Shoparoo.  Volunteering for St. Mary Catholic School is time well spent with outstnding people for an amazing cause!

 

 WHEN WE MEET:

The PTO will have two general meetings during the year.  All are encouraged to attent to learn more about what we do and how to be involved.  We hope to see all St. Mary Catholic School parents, grandparents, teachers, and staff at our meetings!

 

Reward Programs:

SCRIP www.shopwithscrip.com

SCRIP functions like gift cards and gift certificates.  All you do is go to the SCRIP website and purchase a gift card from a vendor who has agreed to give a certain percentage of that SCRIP purchase back to the school.  You can purchase SCRIP for everyday expenses like food, clotihing and entertainment while earning a percentage of each dollar spent for St. Mary.  After you earn $50.00 for the school, any SCRIP rewards from that point forward are split between the school and your tuition bill!  If you have any other questions, contact Beth Hooks, parent and SCRIP coordinator. 

 

SHOPAROO www.shoparoo.com

 Shoparoo is a free mobile app that turns receipts from grocery stores and many other vendors into school fundraising dollars.  Simply snap a photo of your receipt with the Shoparoo app to earn Roo Points.  The app then converts your Roo Points into real dollars for the school!

 

 BOX TOPS www.boxtopsforeducation.com

Box Tops for Education offers ways for you to earn cash for St. Mary through everyday purchases including groceries and online shopping.  Each Box Top earns money for St. Mary, so remember to clip your Box Tops and shop through Box Tops online!  If you have any other questions, contact Robin Leary, parent and Box Top coordinator.
