The Parents Resource Page would like to offer you opportunities for you to become fully involved and engaged in your student’s academic, athletic and social involvement. Many of the current O’B Parents are fully involved and welcome NEW! parent involvement.

A. Register your Stop & Shop Rewards card for the S&S A+ Rewards Program
Stop & Shop has an A+ Program that allows customers to designate up to two schools to earn A+ reward points each time they use their Stop & Shop cards. These points are then later converted into cash rewards for the school.
To participate in this program and help raise funds for the O’Bryant:
- Obtain the 13-digit number on the back of your Stop & Shop card. If you do not currently have a card, you can register for one online or in the store.
- Beginning 9/12/16, visit www.stopandshop.com/aplus and select “register your card” located in the red box on the right side of the screen. Follow the prompts to complete your registration.
- The code for the O’Bryant is 07310.
Although you can register your card anytime, the opportunity to register for the A+ Program has a limited window (mid-September to mid-October). Please consider participating in this valuable program and supporting the O’Bryant.
This will not conflict with the gas rewards program at Stop & Shop.
This program is available for Peapod customers as well. You can register your card on your Peapod account.
If you have additional questions about the program, please call the A+ School Rewards Hotline at 1-877-275-2758.
