Tile FundNow that we have officially opened our new activity center, we are also going public with our capital campaign, “Building for Excellence.” This campaign focuses on Students of Excellence, Faculty of Excellence, and Facilities of Excellence. Please consider purchasing a personalized, commemorative tile that will be assembled into a beautiful mosaic to be part of the permanent bench located in the foyer of the new Activity Center. This purchase contributes to this capital campaign, demonstrates your support of the school, and inspires others to do the same!

PCS art teacher, Mary DeClerico, will hand-craft each tile complete with a custom inscription (e.g. your family name, “in honor of…,” or “in memory of…”). We are also challenging each graduating class to collect enough money to buy a custom tile to represent their graduating class (e.g. Class of 1985, Class of 2025).

GIANT FOOD STORE A+ PROGRAM

Beginning October 2016 through March 2017, Plumstead Christian School has the opportunity to earn cash through GIANT A+ School Rewards Program.  For your purchases to count though, you must have your Giant bonus card registered with the program.  If you registered this year, you do not need to re-register.  You can visit the website to verify correct school assignment.  Also, don’t forget to encourage your friends and relatives to do the same.  It could mean more Cash for our school.  Registration takes about two minutes.

To register beginning September:

  • Log on to www.giantfoodstores.com/aplus select CUSTOMER REGISTRATION to register online using your BONUSCARD
  • Once on the site make sure you designate Plumstead Christian School (ID#23521) 

After you register your card, each shopping trip at GIANT using your BONUSCARD earns CASH for our school. Each month, the amount of CASH awarded will be updated on the GIANT website. You can track the amount of points you earn for our school by checking your grocery receipt and online when you create an account at httAp://www.giantfoodstores.com. Our school will receive a check at the end of the program. The money can be used for any of our school’s educational needs. *Phone numbers may not be used to designate. If you do not know your 11-digit BONUSCARD number, call the Card Hotline at 1-888-814-4268 and select OPTION #2.
