What is SCRIP?  Have a look and order away (this link includes information about SCRIP and a complete order form full of vendors that you shop at every single day).

And, by the way – did you know every spring our 8th Grade students take an educational trip to Washington D.C.?  Did you know that by buying SCRIP, as a parent of a 4th-8th Grade student, you can accumulate $$ (via the percentage kick-back that comes to the school) that will go directly into their Washington D.C. account?  So – let’s get shopping then!!  K-3rd kick-up goes straight into our scholarship fund!  Thank you for your participation!  It’s truly a win-win for everybody!!!
