SCRIP SCOOP NEWS:
To the tune of "Love & Marriage:"
Groceries and gas! Groceries and gas!
Get them both with check or cash!
When you find you've got the one, then you'll know you need the other!
Groceries and gas! Groceries and gas!...

As the above jingle goes, we're all in need of groceries and gas to get us through each week.  By purchasing gift cards to offset these expenses, you're allowing us to help you.  So, help us help you!  How?  When you buy a gift card through the Scrip program to pay for your groceries and/or gas, you earn rebates on each card you purchase.  These rebates add up and then at the end of the school year we can apply them to your final tuition statement or you can opt for a cash payment.  Where else is there a fundraising program that gives rebates directly towards your expenses?

As you focus on what you and your family really need, remember we keep Kroger, Giant Eagle, Meijer, Walmart, and Target in stock for groceries and Marathon, Kroger, Speedway, Circle K, and Meijer in stock for gas. We can also order BP, Shell, and Sunoco at your request! Shop at a store where Scrip is not available, like Aldi? Order the Visa Five Back card or Discover Universal Gift Card. The benefit of these cards is that they can be used anywhere AND there is no activation fee! Bonus!

The Scrip program also offers a great variety of cards for places like Target, T.J. Maxx, Old Navy, Bath & Body Works, Olive Garden, Chipotle, Menards and Lowe's, just to name a few.  To see all of the participating retailers, visit http://www.shopwithscrip.com.  You'll be surprised at what you find!

RaiseRight app: If you haven't tried the new RaiseRight app yet, do so!  You'll be amazed at the benefits!:
• You've got Scrip at your fingertips ready to use when you need it.
No plastic cards that you run the risk of forgetting them at home when you need them most!
• At the store, before you check out look and see if Scrip eGift cards are offered on the app.
• When dining out or ordering take out, while you're waiting for your check, look and see if Scrip eGift cards are available.
• When you need a last minute gift card, check out the eGift cards available. You can even send a screen shot to the recipient!
• Place your regular Scrip purchases instead of the orange order form, use the app!
• Place your order on your phone, pay by check or credit card right then and there or send a check or cash into school, and your order will be in the Scrip order queue and ready for processing on Tuesday morning. This works for physical cards as well as eGift cards. Give it a try!

Questions? Call/text Amy at 414-882-1863. Together, we can do this!
"What is SCRIP?"
Thank you to all of the families who sent in Scrip orders via the orange order form and online!  Now is a good time to get in to a pattern of using Scrip for your grocery, gas, and regular retail purchases (Target, Walmart, Sam's Club, Amazon.com, etc.).  Not familiar with Scrip or unsure how to get started?  Please contact Amy or Tara for a 1:1 tutorial or visit http://www.shopwithscrip.com and watch the YouTube videos found on the home page.  YouTube itself has a variety of videos and tutorials regarding Scrip, if that's your preferred learning method.  As Home Depot says, "You can do it!  We can help!"

Remember, Scrip orders submitted by 8:30am Tuesday morning will be processed that day.  Orders turned in after that time will be processed the next week.

Also, with your $50 Scrip order, your child/ren earns an OUP (out of uniform pass) to be used on Thursdays.  The OUP is sent home with your Scrip order on Tuesday and your student(s) can bring it back to school on Thursday.  Dressing out of uniform means wearing nice street clothes (jeans (no holes), khakis, shirts, skirts, jumpers, etc) that your child might wear to church or a nice restaurant.  We frequently have families or members of the administration touring the building and we want to leave them with a good impression.  Thank you for your support!
