Our families raise money each year for our school through the Easy Money program. We need your ongoing participation. Easy Money envelopes are located in the main office and outside each Maternelle classroom.
Stop&Shop donates a percentage of purchases made to our school through their A+ Rewards program, but you must register each year for FASRI to receive credit. Register your card on their website or add your card number to the Stop&Shop registration sheet in the main office and we'll do it for you.
Boxtops for Education program sends a check to the school equal to the number of coupons collected and they add up fast. Clip Box Tops coupons from any of the hundreds of products listed, and drop them in an Easy Money envelope.
Eastside Marketplace Friendship Fund donates 1% of the value of collected receipts to the school. Keep your Eastside receipts and drop them in the Easy Money envelope. Remember, no receipt is too old or too crumpled!
Amazon Smile: when shopping on Amazon, use the http://smile.amazon.com link and choose French American School of Rhode Island as your charity - 0.5% of most purchases will be donated to our school!
