Our school and PTO can earn considerable funds through rewards programs offered by Harris Teeter, and Kroger. Last year, MLS earned almost $5,000 from Kroger and Harris Teeter through these programs. Follow the instructions below to link your accounts to start benefiting the school with your regular shopping - your support really pays off!

Remember to RE-LINK?

Your Harris Teeter and Kroger loyalty cards earn money for MLS, but you have to RE-LINK every school year!  At Harris Teeter you can ask the cashier to link your card to school code 3247, or click here to do it online. Kroger cards can only be re-linked online, not in stores—click here.  It only takes a minute to start earning money for MLS!

Major retailers contribute cash to Meriwether Lewis Elementary and the MLS PTO. Money raised from our Grocery Programs helps pay for instructional materials, teacher classroom funds, student assemblies, technology, MLS community events, staff appreciation and much more. Last year the Grocery programs raised almost $5,000 for MLS! Remember, parents, grandparents, friends, and family can all help by following these linking instructions.
