If you shop at Amazon your spending can help our school. A percentage of your spending on almost anything you purchase will go to PS 321. The only thing you need to do to participate in this fundraising effort is use the AMAZON AFFILIATE LINK every time you head to Amazon to shop. You can do this easily by saving the link as your Amazon bookmark the first time you use it. Then every time you want to shop at Amazon, simply use your Amazon bookmark and you will be contributing to PS 321.
For your reference, we’ve put together this list of BOOKS BY READING LEVEL. If you click on the cover of the books, you will be taken to the Amazon.com listing for the book. We know that Amazon.com carries all of these books, but you can also find them at the Brooklyn Public Library, or at many local bookstores. Scholastic.com also allows you to search for books by Guided Reading Level.
Many teachers also have classroom WISH LISTS which are also linked to our Amazon Affiliate program. When you shop for classroom supplies via these links you are also donating a percentage to the PTA.
DIVERSE BOOKS From the PS 321 Diversity Committee, which includes teachers and parents, we share recent and notable books that feature diverse characters, explore different cultures and the lives of cultural figures, and celebrate America’s wide cultural and linguistic diversity.
Games can be a fun way to reinforce learning at home and in the classroom. Here is a list of EDUCATIONAL GAMES that you might enjoy playing with your children. They also make great birthday and holiday gifts.
PS 321 Fairway Community Partners program – At the beginning of the 2015 school year, we distributed Fairway cards to families via the red homework folders. Just use your card every time you shop at any Fairway Market and 3% of your total purchase will be donated to our school. To help us grow our donation even more, Fairway schedules a Double Day every quarter. On Double Day, every dollar that you spend counts twice. Please keep an eye out in the Tuesday eBulletin and homepage for Double Days. The closest Fairway Market is located at 480-500 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook. If you need an additional or replacement card, please contact Deb Orr, our Parent Coordinator.
BoxTops – Earn cash for our school every time you shop for groceries. Clip BoxTops from hundreds of your favorite products. Each Box Tops coupon is worth 10¢ to our school—and that adds up fast! Collect BoxTops – here is the product list. Go to boxtops4education.com for more information.
Target Visa card – Sign up for a Target Visa credit card (REDcard) at the store or here. Designate PS 321 as your reward recipient in your online application or by calling 1800 316 6142. Target will donate 1% of your purchases to our school. For more information: contact Emma Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MyLunchMoney – Some days your child might eat school lunch and maybe you don’t even realize it. But last year, our school paid approximately $5000 in unpaid fees for kids who aren’t eligible for free lunch. Sign up today at www.mylunchmoney.com, open an account and fund it with a credit card. No cash, no cards, no unpaid bills. You’ll need your child’s student ID, which you can get from the main office or from Parent Coordinator Deb Orr at email@example.com.
UrbanSitter – We’re partnering with UrbanSitter to provide our school community with a fantastic childcare benefit. If you sign up through our special webpage, you’ll get a free month of UrbanSitter membership to try it. Plus, UrbanSitter will donate $20 to our school after you hire your first sitter!
