SCRIP SCOOP NEWS: To the tune of Frere Jaques: "Prayer and fasting and almsgiving we are meant to repent. Forty days of sacrifice. Being super extra nice. This is Lent. This is Lent." During this time of Lent, see how participating in the Scrip program can be part of your Lenten journey. • Prayer: Scrip rebates are split 50/50 between families who buy Scrip and SBHS. As you make your Scrip purchases, pray and thank God for the opportunity to send your children to a school where faith, education, and community come together creating a solid foundation. • Fasting: the giving up of something treasured in order to become closer to God and show God's love to others. For some, this is sacrificing screen time. Use that "found" time to go out to a special meal, catch a movie, drive on a pilgrimage to visit a nearby church (or go even further to visit the Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio), or any activity that your family would enjoy. Support Scrip and have a good time by seeing what restaurant, movie, and gas cards meet your needs. • Almsgiving: the practice of giving money or food to the poor. Perhaps next time you're at the grocery store, you can pick up the ingredients to make a meal for a family in need. So many meals start with nonperishable canned or boxed products. Make it extra special by including a prepackaged dessert. Take your food to St. Vincent de Paul and they'll see that a special family benefits from your generosity. Get Walmart or Meijer Scrip gift cards to fund your purchase!
We're on a Lenten journey. Take Scrip along and be "super extra nice!"

"What is SCRIP?" Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that allows families to earn money toward your tuition expenses and support Home & School at the same time! Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards.
"How does SCRIP work?" You purchase gift cards from your organization at face value, and your coordinator orders those cards at a reduced price. The difference is money for your organization. It’s really that simple!
"Where can I use SCRIP gift cards"? When you use Scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. We offer over 300 of the country’s biggest brands, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work! "How do I sign up"? Fill out a Scrip Registration form and return to the school office c/o Scrip Coordinators. Then go to shopwithscrip.com and register for an account. St. Bernadette School’s enrollment code is AFALDCA82228.
"How do I order and receive SCRIP"? The easiest method is ordering online at shopwithscrip.com. You may also use our paper order form. We process orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You may receive your order by picking it up at school or having it delivered home via kidmail.
"How do I get the most out of SCRIP"? Take advantage of the online ordering using PrestoPay (checking account payment), the mobile ScripWallet, ScripNow, Reload, and ReloadNow.
