Amazon.com and eScrip Shopping Programs
Each year the PVSD PTO pays for classroom supplies for every student in the district using funds raised through the eScrip and Amazon.com programs.
If you use the PV PTO Amazon Smile link every time you start your shopping trip on Amazon, our schools will receive 0.5% of your purchase as part of the Amazon Smile program. Your purchase will not be affected by starting with this link - you will still get the benefit of your Prime membership and your purchase information will not be shared. Just bookmark the PV PTO Amazon Smile link and use this link every time you shop. Click below if you need more information on how to bookmark this page.
