SCRIP is a fundraising program that allows you to trade your cash for an equal amount in gift certificates from a variety of stores. The SCRIP committee is able to purchase these gift certificates at a discount. The school's profit is made by keeping that discount. The money made from SCRIP purchases goes directly to you and/or the school. For families with students at Saint John, half of the profits from your SCRIP purchases go into the Tuition Reimbursement Plan. This money may be used by your family toward tuition, fees and lunch or it may be passed back to the school. Money that is given back to the school goes to Saint John PTC for educational materials for the school. A tax receipt for your donation will be given.
Credits are given twice a year, before school starts and after the Christmas break. Cutoff times are July 31st for the beginning of school and December 31st for the January credit. The only cash refunds for reimbursements/credits given are to eighth grade parents who have no other children enrolled for the following year at Saint John.
SCRIP may be purchased for both local and national retailers, restaurants, etc. SCRIP is sold in the school lobby after school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons or the last school day of the week before a break, as well as after each of the Mass times on Saturday and Sunday on the first and third weekends of the month. You may earn Care and Share hours by selling SCRIP at specific events or after school and church. Orders may also be placed via the school office to be picked up or sent home. All orders over $100 must be picked up at the school office or directly from one of the SCRIP sellers. Prepayment must be made on all large orders. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES!
