  • June 2018 Scrip Sheet
  • Welcome to the St. Apollinaris Catholic School Scrip Program 2018/2019.  Please take the time to read the following information, as it will surely help you understand our program and maximize your profit.

    What is Scrip? 
    Scrip is just another word for gift cards.  We purchase a variety of gift cards from local and regional retailers at a discount and sell them to our school and parish community for full face value.

    What is the purpose of this program?
    Scrip is one of the school’s main fundraisers and generates funds to offset the actual cost to educate our children.

    Why should you participate?
    Each family has a Scrip obligation of $400.00.  You may choose to opt out of the scrip program and pay $500.00 with your registration, or you may participate and meet your goal by purchasing Scrip.  I highly recommend participation, as if you supersede your obligation, 50% of your overage is credited towards your tuition or registration.  If you choose to participate, but fail to make any purchases throughout the scrip year, you will be billed the non-participation buy-out fee of $500.00.

    Is this $400 in total sales?
    In order to reach your obligation you must make a PROFIT of $400.00.  For example, Brown’s Valley Market has a contribution of 5%.  Therefore, if you know you spend $500 a month at Brown’s Valley Market, use Scrip and you will receive $25 a month toward your obligation:  $25 a month for 12 months is $300.00! If you commit to just groceries and gas, you should be able to meet or exceed your obligation.

    When does the Scrip year begin, and where may I purchase it?
    The Scrip year begins May 1 and goes through April 30th. You may purchase Scrip in the school office during regular school hours or after Sunday Mass in the school office from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Scrip is sold in the summer months during our summer office hours and after Church on Sunday between 8-12pm.

    How will I know how much credit I have?
    Your scrip totals will be updated quarterly on School Speak, and you will receive a final billing statement noting any balance due in May.  You may contact me at any time by email or in the school office with questions regarding your account.

    What is the best way to meet this goal?
    We have a variety of ways to obtain this goal:

    1:         Purchase Scrip in the office

    2:         Sign up with eScrip.com to earn rebates while shopping at Lucky, the eScrip online shopping mall or smaller independent grocery stores.

    3:         Purchase scrip online through shopwithscrip.com

    4:        Benefit-Mobile App

     

    Consistency is the key to success! Get your friends and family involved.  Use Scrip for Christmas gifts, Father’s Day etc.  You may begin purchasing on May 1 for the 18/19 School Year!
