This Week's Highlighted Activity
THE PLYMPTON SHOPPING CART
Ready to start thinking about upcoming events and holidays? Gift cards can be used to do your shopping and they also make great gifts! Why not take advantage of the Plympton gift card fundraiser?
Buy cards for yourself and use them for your everyday shopping-weekly groceries, morning coffee, movies and dining out!
You buy gift cards for face value and Plympton receives the 'rebate' amount (with no additional fees for you).
Please return the bottom portion of the attached form with your order by Friday December 7, 2018. Gift cards should be in prior to holiday break.

STOCKINGS FOR SENIORS
The holidays are fast approaching and, unfortunately, for everyone they are not "happy".
Help Waltham Crossings, The Elder Service Providers and The Waltham COA deliver lots of cheer this holiday season.
Our Elves (Meals on Wheels drivers) will be delivering 150 gift filled stockings to home bound seniors on December 19.
Donations of note cards, stamps, candy, socks, gloves, playing cards, hand lotion and $5 gift cards – or anything you care to donate - can be dropped off at Waltham Crossings at 126 Smith Street. Donations accepted until December 12.
A drop-box will be located in the lobby
Please call Theresa at 781.466.9912 for more information
Fundraising for the PTO
We love Box Tops at the PTO! The 2017-2018 school year raised close to $1000 from Box Top donations alone. It's easy to do; just snip them off of relevant packaging when you purchase supporting products! Send them into the school with your child; the PTO has a drop box in the main office to collect all of the Box Tops collected by your family.
Did you know that there is also a Box Tops app?? The app makes it even easier to collect funds for Plympton School. https://www.boxtops4education.com/bonusapp
The BoxTops website has contests in which parents and other family members can enter in order to earn additional BoxTops for our Plympton School. You can enter daily into the BoxTops Sweepstakes in order for a chance to win, there is no purchase necessary! What an easy way to try to aid in the Plympton fundraising activities!
Free & Easy Fundraising
There are several ways to support Plympton that won't cost you a thing and are very little work!
Hannaford Helps Schools
If you shop at Hannaford, look for the "Hannaford Helps Schools" labels on certain products. Buy four and they will donate $3 to Plympton. Just make sure that you put your "coupon" in the Plympton slot on the back wall (Near the Red Box.) Last year we raised nearly $400!! Let's see if we can beat that amount!!
Amazon Smile Did you know that every time you shop with Amazon you can be helping the Plympton PTO for free? Add the 'Plympton School PTO' as your preferred organization at http://smile.amazon.com/
Keep up with the PTO!
