One of the best ways to showcase our amazing school is through our open houses. The open house committee makes sure we put our best foot forward by promoting , setting up and greeting our guests. We are always looking for fresh fun new ideas to boost our open house attendance. We also set up information tables at events such as Stafford Founders Day , St. Mary’s Carnival and more.

A Letter from our Book Fair Chair, Trish Formica!!
It is once again time for our Scholastic Book Fair fundraiser. Our Book Fair Fundraisers are held twice every school year. Our next Book Fair will be November 6 - 8, 2018. Just in time to start your Holiday shopping!
All of the classes (except for the preschools) will be attending the fair during school hours. You will be receiving a book fair flyer home soon. If your child would like to make a purchase at the fair, please send them in with cash or a check in a sealed envelope. If you are a preschool parent please feel free to bring your child to shop at pickup or any other time November 6 – 8, 2018. We accept cash, check, and debit/credit cards. Please make all checks out to “All Saints Regional Catholic School” and please write "book fair" on the memo line.
If you would like to shop the fair with your child please come in on November 6th or 7th after school, the fair will be open in the library until 4pm on both of those days. During after school hours, please enter the building by knocking on the exterior library door. You will not be permitted into the hallway and must exit the building through the library door. If you need to shop later than 4pm then please contact me and I would be happy to help make accommodations for your schedule.

GROUND COMMITTEE NEEDS HELP!!
The PTA would like to thank those on the Grounds Committee who have done an outstanding job of helping with the school grounds, specific to the Koi Pond area! Chair of the Grounds Committee, Sara Arias and family, along with Stacey LaPointe’s family have worked very hard to help clean up that area and we can’t thank them enough.
The Grounds Committee is in constant need of volunteers! This committee is dedicated to making the outside of the school presentable at all times. Their work thus far is already making a positive impact!!!
Please contact Sara Arias if you would be willing to provide your time to help with this at either 609-276-6984 and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
***The Fundraising Committee is working hard on a few new programs for this year. Below is a glimpse of what’s in the works so far***
Shop with Scrip - Shop with Scrip is fundraising while you shop. You can purchase gift cards from over 750 retailer brands you already shop at and earn a rebate on every gift card you purchase at face value. That rebate goes right to our school.

You’ll need to enter our enrollment code F6E9171161851 which will link your account to our school. Once you’ve entered the enrollment code click Register. You’ll answer two challenge questions and provide answers. Then you’ll be ready to order online and earn! Physical gift cards are available as well. Families would need to submit an order form with check payable to ASRCS to Kelly Gorleski.
**Orders will be placed every Monday and will be available the following Monday for pick up at school or they could be sent home with your child. If you chose to have gift cards sent home with your child, please complete the Delivery Waiver Form as well**
Amazon Smile - AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com.

We are in the process of registering and we should be up and running soon. We will keep you posted!
