Welcome Letter from the PTA President

Happy Fall!!!

Welcome to a new year of school and a new year of PTA.  As you start the year, remember that our main focus is children-the children in your home, the children in our school and the children in our state.

If this is your first year at Wanaque School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to each of you.  If you are a "seasoned" Wanaque family, I know that you are as excited as we are to be starting the school year up again.

As I embark on my second year as your PTA President, I am looking forward to continuing the working partnership we have established with the Board of Education, Administration, our amazing Teachers and our invaluable Staff to provide an excellent learning experience for our children.

The next meeting for the Wanaque 8th Grade Parents will be
Wednesday, October 22nd at 7:00PM in the Technology Room

Track your
A+ School Rewards  earnings

Wanaque School is now officially registered with the Stop & Shop A+ School Rewards program.

With A+ School Rewards, points accrue with each purchase where the Stop & Shop Card is used.  It even works with purchases made online with Peapod by Stop & Shop. At the end of each month, these points determine your school's cash total which is automatically credited to its account and school totals updated each month. (Please note: Gift cards, pharmacy, alcohol and/or cigarette purchases are excluded from accruing points.)

How It Works
A+ School Rewards are rounded per transaction to the nearest whole dollar amount. At the end of each month, each school's dollar amount is determined which is then automatically credited to its account

How to Earn Extra Credit
Earn extra credit for your school when you use your Stop & Shop Card to purchase specially-marked products from
these manufacturers (list changes weekly).


8th Grade Yearbook Pictures will be Monday, November 24th


Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help earn money for our school.  Since we joined the program, we have earned over $17,000 from Box Tops for Education.  Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school.

Please support the Box Tops and Labels for Education Programs!

• Clip the Box Tops symbol with the 10¢/expiration date from the hundreds of participating products and send them to school.

• Sign up to support our school at boxtops4education.com, where you can:
• See how much our school is earning with Box Tops
• Enter online promotions for chances to win eBoxTops and other prizes
• Print coupons for your favorite Box Tops brand

Labels for Education

• Clip the UPC labels from participating products
• Sign up your frequent shopper card from ShopRite

Please save your Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education and place them in an envelope or plastic bag.  You can give them to your child's teacher or place them in the big pink box in the school office.  PLEASE REMEMBER TO LABEL THE ENVELOPE/BAG WITH THE TEACHER'S NAME — we award prizes of snack certificates to the classes with the most points, and the overall winning class gets a pizza party in June!

Complete lists of the participating products can be found by clicking this link for the websites listed above. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Wendy DeMaio (wendy_demaio@yahoo.com), the Wanaque Elementary School PTA Coordinator for Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education.
