Yankee Candles

Yankee Candle Fundraiser

Dear Parents:


Swampscott Middle School will be having one online fundraiser – Yankee Candle.  The goal is to help lower the cost of field trips, as well as provide financial aid for students that need it.


For every purchase made on the Yankee Candle website the school will be given 40%.  We are hoping this will help you with your holiday shopping as there are wrapping paper, candles, fragrances and gifts for the holidays and we have been told the candles will be less than if you buy them in the store! We have included a catalog but there is much more than this available online. To ensure delivery by the holidays (Chanukah is December 2) please order by November 5th. Just log onto the website www.yankeecandlefundraising.com with our fundraiser number 990100355.  


Feel free to share the links with family and friends.

Other fundraisers that will not cost you anything include:


  1. Stop and Shop A+, all you have to do is link your Stop and Shop card to Swampscott Middle School and they will donate a portion of your purchases to our school. Just go to https://stopandshop.com/school-rewards/ and register your card to send points to SMS.
  2. Send in your receipts for purchases at any of the Crosby Markets to the office and they will give us credit towards equipment.


Please reach out to Ms. Ardman (8th grade science teacher) with any questions you may have.  We look forward to successful fundraisers, and your support.

Thank you.

5th Grade Ice Cream Social August 16

Please join us on Thursday, August 16th at 1 pm for our 5th grade Ice Cream Social! Ice cream will be served outside, courtesy of our PTO and Treadwell’s Ice Cream.

You will be able to find out your child’s homeroom and locker assignment, as well as have a chance to have your child open up their new locker. Please note, on rare occasions, we do make changes to homeroom assignments before the first day of school. Please do not worry if your child can not open their locker, the 5th grade teachers will assist them during the first week of school.

If you can’t attend on the 16th, you can come up to the middle school after that day to get your child’s assignment.
