Shoparoo is a hassle-free fundraiser. Simply download the app for your iPhone or Android, register to support the Barak Obama Academy of International Studies PTSA, and scan receipts. Obama PTSA will receive points that earn cash for stores that sell groceries - including stores like Target, Walmart, and Costco. Receipts must be less than 2 weeks old, so please enter them when you shop.
Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Each Box Tops is worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. Last school year, we earned $453.00 in cash! This year we’d like to make $1000 – and we can with your help. Just look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them, and send them to school. Please have your child turn them into the office or bring them to a PTSA meeting, or drop them off in the main office.
Helping PPS Obama get new equipment is as easy as using your Advantage Card at Giant Eagle! The “Apples For The Students” program helps our school earn points that can be redeemed for school-related equipment. It’s easy to do!
