Flower Power Fundraiser

This website can be shared with your family and friends, and you can purchase using a credit card. The website will be available until October 7th.

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 and gifts for the holidays and we have been told the candles will be less than if you buy them in the store!  If you place your order by October 21, orders will be received by Thanksgiving.  If you want them by the holidays, orders must be placed by November 8th. Just log onto the website


with our fundraiser number 990100355.  There is a $5.99 shipping fee, but orders over $100 ship for free.

We want your Crosby’s and Henry’s Market receipts!

Crosby’s and Henry’s participate in the Register Tapes for Education program. Just by turning your grocery receipts from either of these stores into the Middle School we can receive points towards free educational supplies!

You can also link your Stop & Shop card to the Middle School as well!

Big Blue Bargains Volunteer Information


Big Blue Bargains is an all-volunteer, school run thrift store. We are open every Wednesday from 9:00-11:00 and Saturday from 9:00-1:00, with each school volunteering for a week. The school rotation schedule works out to just six hours every six weeks! The income received goes directly back to your school.

Since opening in 2012, we have donated $60,000 to the schools!


What’s in it for you if you volunteer?

  • Less need to fundraise at your school or write a personal check
  • Minimal time commitment
  • Ample time to plan ahead to volunteer
  • Fifty percent off the day you volunteer (at least 2 hrs)
  • Minimal tagging of items due to new pricing system
  • Helping the Swampscott community with recycle and reuse efforts
  • Opportunity to connect with new people

Every school has a sign up coordinator who works on getting two volunteers for each day. We realize that committing to four hours on Saturday may be difficult. Therefore, we welcome flexibility with scheduling such as two volunteers working 9:00-11:00 and two working 11:00-1:00. We also welcome teachers, administrators, relatives, and students 15 years and older to volunteer for your school.

Go to our website, bigbluebargains.org, and click on the page “Link to Volunteer Sign Ups”. Here you will find the school coordinator information and the link to sign up to volunteer.

If you have any questions, please email us at bigbluebargains@gmail.com.

2015 Coordinators: Clarke: Allison Duffy, Hadley: Val Sweeney, Stanley: Julie Phaneuf, SMS: Jen Townsend, SHS: Susan Gambal
