SCRIP PROGRAM 2018-19 School Year
Now in our 24th year, the Scrip program is a yearlong HSA fundraiser. Scrip are really a Gift Certificate to your local supermarkets and nationwide retail stores. By turning your cash into gift certificates, you raise money for the students of ICS as well as yourself! Two percent of the profits go back to participating families in the form of “tuition credits,” and the remaining profit goes solely to technology in the computer lab and classrooms. There is no limit to the amount of credits you can earn! Take a form to your relatives, neighbors, and co-workers. It’s like selling cookies or candies, without the calories.
Here’s how it works:
1. Fill out a scrip or grocery order form (to order cards to your favorite/most frequented) store(s) and enclose your check. Please be careful in filling out the form to avoid errors. Remember to make out checks to “SCRIP” for grocery and retail stores.
2. Place it in your family’s “Voucher/Scrip Orders Only” envelope and send it to school with your child to give to his/her teacher.
3. Orders are filled on Friday morning and will be sent home that afternoon.
4. If you prefer to pick up the gift cards yourself or have them sent home with a different sibling, please attach a note telling us.
If you do not receive your order back by the Friday afternoon of the week it was placed or if there is a problem with your order, please call, text or email Cristina Baranauskas @ 862-324-2855 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Remind your child that gift cards are like cash, and there is no way to trace them if they are lost!
There may be times that your order may need to be adjusted due to the supply of gift cards on hand and changes made by the grocery and retail stores. If an item is out of stock, we will memo that to you. If you need a certain gift card that day and do not request a substitute (ex. Target vs. Walmart), please make out a separate check for that item. We do not carry cash and we would not be able to refund you at that time.
Tuition/Voucher Credits – Once a month, you will receive 2% of your total purchases of $50 or more in the form of ICS “tuition credits”. Computer tracking will keep your purchases current. Credits will be sent home on the first Tuesday of the month. Credits are transferable and have no expiration date but are NOT replaced if lost or stolen. They may be used toward tuition, book fees, re-registration, HSA dues, class trips, graduation fees, stationery, and any other fee that you write out a check to ICS. The amount of your credits must be less than or equal to the item you are using it for. NO change or re-issue of credits will be given. Just deduct the amount of your credits, make up any difference with check or cash, and hand them both in to the teacher/office when paying a bill.
Win “$1,000 worth of Tuition Credits” – For every $1,000 worth of vouchers or Scrip you purchase, your name is automatically entered in the drawing. If you win, you may apply the credit to next year’s tuition bill. In the event of an eighth grader winning, the value of the drawing will be forwarded to the Catholic high school of your choice. Winnings are non-transferable and are intended for those families continuing their child’s catholic education at ICS. Purchases made August 2018 through June 2019 will be eligible for the drawing. Good Luck!
HELP NEEDED! Please consider volunteering for the scrip program. It’s a great way to get started on the program and an easy and fun way to meet new friends. Orders are filled on Friday morning from 9:00-11:00am in the school lobby.
New Families (and Old) if you have any questions, are interested in volunteering or would like to know more about the program, feel free to call Cristina @ 862-324-2855 or Allison 908-208-9246.
Thanks and have a wonderful school year!
