Back-to-school season brings new friends, new classes, new teachers…for St. Mary students it also signifies the kickoff to the annual Magazine & Gift Sale fundraiser. The kids are so enthusiastic for this annual fundraiser because it not only helps their school, but they also earn lots of fun prizes!
You, your family and friends can choose from over 750 magazines subscriptions, numerous e-subscriptions, and a wide selection of gifts. Here’s how:
- Simply visit Great American to place your order
- Use St. Mary Store ID 2227817 to guarantee our school gets credit for your purchases
- To get prize credit for your favorite St. Mary student, enter his or her ID (each student is provided this ID# through the school)
Ordering can be done anytime throughout the year from the comfort of your home and the profits benefit St. Mary. However, to make sure your St. Mary student salesperson earns those terrific prizes, you’ll need to participate during the official fall sale campaign.
