SCRIP program is an ongoing fundraiser for the school. Home & School purchases gift certificates and/or plastic gift cards from national and local businesses at a discount. Discounts range from 1.5% to 50%. Home & School then resells the certificates at face value to participants. The difference between the discounted purchase price and resell value is our profit. In turn, Home & School shares that profit with participating families. SCRIP forms sent out regularly.
