BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
OAS is participating in Box Tops for Education, which means that you can earn cash with the products you already buy to help our school get the supplies it needs. Our goal is to earn $1000 through Box Tops this year!
If you shop at Shoprite, earning money for shopping is even easier through ShopRite for My School. Go to https://www.shopriteformyschool.com and just link your Price Plus Card to Shoprite for My School and select Orange Avenue School. Bonus Box Tops earnings will be automatically credited to your selected school’s account. You can still scan your receipt for additional box tops.
Here’s another way you can help:
1. Download the Box Tops app on your phone and follow instructions on how to set up an account and sign up to support our school.
2. Then, just shop as you normally would.
3. Use the app to snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase. It’ll automatically identify any Box Tops participating products and you’ll give back to our school with each product you buy.
If you shop online, you can earn with your digital or email receipt, too. See how to submit those receipts at BTFE.com/digitalreceipts.
Please contact Amanda Cowell (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or if you need assistance downloading the app, scanning receipts or linking your price plus card.

Please continue to send high-resolution/full-size photos of your children for the OAS elementary yearbook to OASyearbook2022@gmail.com. Thank you for your help and contributions. Keep them coming!

Scholastic Book Fair & Art Night
A new SignUpGenius will be sent out in late March. If you already set up an e-wallet for the Book Fair, you can use the money at the Book Fair in April. For anyone who has not set up an e-wallet yet, there is no need to do so until April. A reminder will be sent at that time.
Art Night will be rescheduled for a later date – more information to follow.

If you have any clear pictures of opening day, sport events, friend groups, etc., please email them to email@example.com. Include grade and names of students in the subject line.
