Calling all Amazon Shoppers!

The NMMS PTSA has a new way for you to earn money for our PTSA while shopping on It's a program created by Amazon called AmazonSmile.

By logging on the site using a special web address, you can shop as usual and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchase to the charitable organization of your choice, in this case, the NMMS PTSA. Everything else about shopping on Amazon stays the same, including the shopping cart, wishlists and shipping options. It’s the same products, same prices, same service, just a different web address.

The process to designate NMMS as your charity of choice is easy. Simply go to Log in using your Amazon account name and password. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll get a pop-up screen that asks you to “Select a Charity.” In the 'Pick Your own charitable organization' window, type in Newport Mill Middle School. Click on the Select button next to our school name and you’re all set! To confirm that you've selected Newport Mill, on the next screen you should see the Newport Mill Middle School name above the Amazon Smile logo.

Once you've established this selection, please bookmark this site and do all your future Amazon shopping from address. All purchase made on this site will result in a donation to NMMS PTSA.

As we approach the holiday shopping season, we hope that you will support the NMMS PTSA by starting your shopping at
