The Home and School Association (HSA) of St. Mary School of Milford, a ministry of Precious Blood Parish of Milford, CT, is a group of parent volunteers working in conjunction with the school principal and Pastor of Precious Blood Parish in order to:
Provide opportunities for parents to be involved in school activities.
Create fun and memorable activities for our students.
Raise money for the school to offset some of the tuition costs and to provide enhancements such as capital and technology enhancements and enrichment programs.
Provide a means for people outside the school (family members, grandparents, friends, parishioners) to help support the school.

Thank you to everyone who has been submitting Box Tops all year. We raised $826.00 during this school year. Our next submission deadline will be in the fall. Please send any box tops you have home before the end of the year to Tyler Nickolenko Grade 6 Room 13 and continue to collect them over the summer.
Over the summer, you'll begin to see some participating brands change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label. Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team is hard at work building a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app that will be ready this summer.
If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, be sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, once the new app launches, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping the traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products.
Some brands have already started to update their packaging in advance. Until the new app launches, if you see the new Box Tops label on packages, you can use the current Box Tops Bonus App to earn Box Tops for that product. Simply download the app, select the bonus offer for the product you've purchased and scan your receipt to earn.
This is the easiest way for our school to earn money and for you to earn fundraising points. We currently net $1000 a month in profit from sales and that’s with only 25% of our school families participating. Imagine if every family participated? We would have the potential to earn over $40,000 each year. It’s a no-brainer!
Order your cards using your manila envelope that was distributed in September. Send your orders through backpack mail Monday through Wednesday. Your order will be filled and returned to you through your child’s backpack on Thursday.
It’s that easy!! Forgot this week? Orders can also be filled in the school office too.
If you purchase $100 each week from now until June you will earn $120 towards your $300 fundraising obligation. Remember 5% of your purchases goes towards fundraising points. Start buying!!
We are always looking for volunteers to sell the cards after St. Mary and St. Agnes weekend Masses where you can earn assessment points! Contact Gina at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Earn additional fundraising credits by selling cards to friends and family members. This is a great way for friends and family to support our school at no cost to them. Gift cards are purchased at face value-- so $25 gets you a gift card worth $25.00!
If you have any questions about ordering, please contact Gina at email@example.com.
