SCRIP is a retail card program where families can purchase store gift cards in a variety of denominations to use at a huge lineup of retailers - including fine dining and fast food restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters and gas stations. The cards are sold at a rebate (ranging from 1% up to 25%) which is split between the families and the school. Parents save money just by shopping and the school benefits too. You get paid to shop! Rebate checks have ranged from $5 to over $500!
Plastic cards can be ordered online and arrive via backpack the next week. Through the ScripNow! Program, many stores offer instant digital gift cards that can be printed at home or shown on your smart phone. Some ScripNow! retailers include: Amazon, AMC Theatres, Chipotle, Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic, iTunes, Kohl’s, Lands’ End, Macy’s, Marriott, Sam’s Club/Walmart, Starbucks and so many more.

Box Tops for Education: Thank you for clipping and sending in your Box Tops this year! Each logo earns us ten cents, which adds up nicely. Please look for this logo and clip & save any labels! You can send them in with your child at any time, return to the collection bin in the school lobby or place into the canisters located on the tables in the church narthex.
Throughout the month, your child should be attaching box tops to the box top sheet. At the end of each month, turn in your sheet, even if it is not complete, to your teacher. Feel free to ask for an additional sheet/print one out if you fill yours up before the end of the month. We are also asking if you could help with the following:
Please tape or glue the box tops to the sheet for easy collecting and submitting.
Please put your teacher’s name on the sheet so that they can get credit for your hard work.
Make sure the box tops are not expired.
Also, we are NOT collecting soup labels.
The class with the most box tops at the end of the month will be awarded with a dress down day. Then the class that collects the most throughout the year will earn a pizza party for their class in May.
Thanks so much for your support!
