SCRIP PROGRAM 2019 - 2020 School Year
Dear Families, Welcome Back!
Our Scrip program is now in its 25th year thanks to the support of all of our wonderful ICS families and we hope to make this another successful year. Scrip is our Gift / Grocery card program and our only yearlong fundraiser but most importantly, Scrip is a Win / Win / Win for everyone!
- Purchase a Scrip Gift or Grocery Card to any of the nationwide retailers we carry (see enclosed order form) and the school receives a small portion back. Win!
- ICS gives participating families 2% of those rebates back in the form of “Tuition Credits” for every order placed. Win!
- The balance of the profits raised from our Scrip program goes directly back to the students as Scrip proceeds are used to fund technology in our computer lab and classrooms. Win!
Scrip is easy to use; here’s how it works:
1. Fill out an order form - this is where you select gift cards to your favorite/most frequented stores - please be sure to fill out your form completely and carefully to avoid errors
2. Enclose your check - All checks should be made payable to “SCRIP”
3. Place your order in your family’s “Voucher/Scrip Orders Only” envelope - All orders should be sent in to school with your child and handed in to his/her teacher
All orders are filled on Thursday mornings. If you do not receive your order back by the Thursday afternoon of the week it was placed or if there is a problem with your order, please call, text or email one of our Scrip chairs:
Cristina Baranauskas @ 862-324-2855 or
Allison Sorrentino @ 908-208-9246 or
Thank you for your continued support of our Scrip Program, remember everyone wins with Scrip! All the best for a wonderful and blessed school year!
Cristina Baranauskas & Allison Sorrentino
Some Important Notes Regarding the Scrip Program:
Remind your child that gift cards are like cash, and there is no way to trace them if they are lost!
There may be times that your order may need to be adjusted due to the supply of gift cards on hand and changes made by the grocery and retail stores. If an item is out of stock, we will memo that to you. If you need a certain gift card that day and do not request a substitute (ex. Target vs. Walmart), please make out a separate check for that item. We do not carry cash and we would not be able to refund you at that time.
Tuition/Voucher Credits – Once a month, you will receive 2% of your total purchases of $50 or more in the form of ICS “tuition credits”. Computer tracking will keep your purchases current. Credits will be sent home on the first Tuesday of the month. Credits are transferable and have no expiration date but are NOT replaced if lost or stolen. They may be used toward tuition, book fees, reregistration, HSA dues, class trips, graduation fees, stationery, and any other fee that you write out a check to ICS. The amount of your credits must be less than or equal to the item you are using it for. NO change or re-issue of credits will be given. Just deduct the amount of your credits, make up any difference with check or cash, and hand them both in to the teacher/office when paying a bill.
Win “$1,000 worth of Tuition Credits” – For every $1,000 worth of vouchers or Scrip you purchase, your name is automatically entered in the drawing. If you win, you may apply the credit to next year’s tuition bill. In the event of an eighth grader winning, the value of the drawing will be forwarded to the Catholic high school of your choice. Winnings are non-transferable and are intended for those families continuing their child’s catholic education at ICS. Purchases made August 2019 through June 2020 will be eligible for the drawing. Good Luck!
HELP NEEDED! Please consider volunteering for the scrip program. It’s a great way to get started on the program and an easy and fun way to meet new friends. Orders are filled on Thursday morning from 9:00-11:00am in the school.
If you have any questions, are interested in volunteering or would like to know more about the program, feel free to call Cristina @ 862-324-2855 or Allison @ 908-208-9246.
