Friday News & Reminders - 11/20/15

St. Mary's Church is hosting this year's Simsbury Interfaith Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, November 22nd at 7pm. Following the service there will be a reception in the parish center. All are welcome!

The combined choirs and musicians from area worship communities will be performing during the service.  We hope many of you will join us as we count our blessings during this season of abundance.

We are excited to announce that our school is now part of the Amazon Associates program. A
What does this mean for St. Mary's School?

It means that if you shop with Amazon, a percentage of your purchase will come back to St. Mary's School if you navigate to the Amazon home screen via the Amazon banner on our blog's homescreen -  Once you have "clicked through" to Amazon via the banner, there is nothing extra for you do to for St. Mary's to benefit.  The banner is an active link that identifies you as a shopper affiliated with our Amazon Associates' account.

When can you start participating?  

Right now!  The banner is available on the school blog and will also appear on our school's website soon.  On the blog, find the banner on the top right side. 

Is there anything else you can do to benefit SMS via this program?  

Yes, there are two more ways for you to help. 

1.   Purchase Amazon gift cards from the CHOICE program via GL Scrip and use those CHOICE cards to pay for your Amazon purchase's.  You will then "earn" a 3% profit toward your family's CHOICE obligation.

2.  Share this information with your friends and family that shop with Amazon.  Encourage them to navigate to Amazon via the Amazon banner on our school blog -  When the Amazon homescreen is accessed via our banner, all their purchases will also benefit SMS.

Questions?  Contact Mrs. Hatch or Mrs. Chagnon in the school office.
