DOUBLE your Roo Points when you upload your Black Friday receipts on Black Friday!

On November 29, Shoparoo will award you double the Roo Points when you upload your Black Friday receipts within an hour of your purchase.  Remember, you can submit more than just grocery-related receipts this holiday season — that means you’ll also get double the Roo Points for Black Friday purchases from toy, department, electronics, home improvement, and office supply stores!

Keep an eye out for special Black Friday surveys for even more ways to earn.

Visit blog.shoparoo.com for more information, and tell Christa Mcauliffe Middle School to start making room for double the donations.  Now that’s something to be thankful for!

Earlier today, PTSA officially wrapped up the Enjoy The City coupon book fundraiser!  We would like to thank you (parents & staff) for all your efforts in making this a very successful fundraiser!  The teacher with the class that sold the most books this year is Mrs. Baughman!  Way to go!!!  PTSA realizes that her class size is larger than the other classes so, in the interest of fairness, we would also like to acknowledge and congratulate Mrs. Eisenberg who had the second highest selling class.  Both teachers will receive a $25 Office Depot gift card.  Thank you to all our teachers for your help in tracking the books… your support and hard work is always appreciated!!

FINAL CALL… Enjoy The City Coupon Books

FINAL CALL… If your student still has not returned their unsold Enjoy the City Coupon Book to their teacher, it’s not too late. Unfortunately any coupon books not returned will be marked on the student’s “obligations” list. All unsold coupon books need to be returned to the vendor or else that money comes directly out of our pocket. Please, please take a moment to make sure all unsold books have been returned to the school. Thanks for your cooperation!!
