“Something for Everyone”
As we all know, the tuition we pay at SMA only covers part of the cost of the Catholic Education we have chosen for our children. Ongoing fundraising is necessary to enhance our educational programs. Many opportunities are available to support SMA everyday.
Currently we have two galas a year, there are many ways to support the galas. Donate an item or service, help with your class live auction item, attend, and purchase both great deals and one of-a-kind class masterpieces. Please contact the PTO with how you can help!
Box Tops for Education
Clip those little Box Tops for Education off of many of your favorite brands. Turn them into the front office. We receive 10 cents per box top, sometimes more during specials. Always check expiration dates, and turn them in often. Ask your friends and family to cut them out too! Additional money is available to the school if you register and shop online through BoxTops4Education.com.
Monthly Pancake Breakfasts on the first Sunday of the month at Mary, Star of the Sea- A great way to socialize with both parish and school families. Annual Golf Classic and Dinner - Golf and dinner on a Friday in the fall, all to raise money and build SMA community spirit.
SMA Spirit Apparel
Quality SMA spirit wear will go on sale several times throughout the school year. Don't miss the opportunity to represent our school and show your spirit.
Student Note Cards
Made by our very own SMA budding artists, note cards can be purchased at the school office. They make for great gifts or stocking stuffers.
Ink Cartridge / Cell Phone Recycling
Don’t throw away your old ink and toner cartridges or your cell phone! Recycle them at SMA where we earn points redeemable for educational supplies.
Be sure your child is included in SMA’s pizza lunch by signing up at the beginning of the year. And instead of packing a lunch two Tuesdays a month, participate in our school Pizza Lunch.
Scholastic Book Orders & Book Fairs
Support your child's reading efforts while building better home, classroom, and school libraries through books purchased via monthly book orders or our school's book fairs.
The SCRIP program costs nothing except some organizational skills in your shopping budget. We
sell gift cards for many retailers, restaurants, grocery stores, gas companies, and even
American Express. We buy them from our supplier at a discount then you buy them at SMA
at face value. We make a percentage on each card sold.
For ESCRIP, be sure to register your club cards from VONS, Ralphs, and Albertsons so SMA
can receive a percentage of your grocery purchases.
Used Uniform Sale
Turn in your gently used uniforms so we can sell them at our spring and fall sales, or throughout the year. Items sell for $5 each, so your donations can really add up. Think “SMA Everyday” to earn money for SMA everyday!
