Support Our School

There are many ways to support St. Angela Merici Parish School – some are monetary and some are volunteering your time and talent. Thank you for helping the children of St. Angela Merici School.


Purchasing SAMShares is one of the easiest ways parents help to control the tuition costs at St. Angela Merici School and even reduce their own tuition costs. SAMShares is a SCRIP program. SCRIP is a fundraising program used throughout the country for organizations to raise funds at no cost to their program.SAMShares are available for both national and local retailers – the same kind of gift card or gift certificate you would purchase at the store. Also, SAMShares can be purchased and the credit applied to our Guardian Angel Fund which provides financial assistance to family’s who demonstrate financial need.The SAMShares program has proven to be the easiest way to earn money for our school without placing an added financial burden on our parents, as all of us need to shop in some manner.
