Scrip is our biggest fundraiser, bringing in between $25,000 – $30,000 each year.  Scrip is a wonderful program that allows you to buy gift certificates for yourself or others and the school earns money, too. The way it works is you buy a gift certificate for a certain amount. You pay the face value of the certificate. The business then gives the school a percentage of that purchase. You get back every dollar that you paid, and the school gets money, too! It is that easy. Click here to download an order form in PDF format.You will need Acrobat Reader to open the file.
