Free Money!----What?!?!

SCRIP is one of the easiest ways to generate income for Lakeshore PTO and YOU!  While shopping at stores you normally shop at, you can earn cash back towards your child’s school lunches, book fair, field trips, spirit wear and more without any extra cost to you!

Let us give you an example!
Say you spend $100 per week on gas and $100 per week on groceries. Just purchase your Kwik Trip and Festival gift cards through scrip here at Lakeshore.  You will get a $100 Kwik Trip card and a $100 Festival card, no extra money out of your pocket. Tina (our Scrip chairperson), will put $9.60 in your personal Scrip account and $2.40 into the Lakeshore PTO account. Do this weekly and after one month, you will have $38.40 in your personal scrip account! That's like getting 3 weeks of FREE lunches for your child. (A summary of spending is attached to this post.)

Our school is very generous with our scrip program. Some schools give 50% to the family and 50% stays at the school, some schools give 60% to the family and 40% stays at the school.  OUR school gives the family 80% and 20% stays at the school.  The percentage that is offered through the gift cards is different with each company. Some examples...Festival donates 3%, Pick N Save donates 4%, Gilles donates 10%, Kwik Trip donates 9% and Panera (opening soon in Fondy!) donates 9%. 

We know it may sound confusing but when you see your Scrip account increase in dollars and you are no longer paying for school lunches, spirit wear, field trips, etc. out of your own pocket, you'll soon realize what an awesome program this is, for both you and your school!  Please click on the Scrip tab above or on the sidebar and get all the details.  An order form is attached or you can pick one up at Lakeshore.

Scrip orders are due by noon each Friday in the Scrip order box in the lobby near the front entrance. Orders are done weekly and will be ready the following Thursday for pick-up or to be sent home with your child. Some on hand inventory of Scrip is available at the school the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month for sale in the cafeteria between 3:15 - 3:45. When you need money from your scrip account to put more funds into your student's lunch account, pay registration fees, buy spirit wear, pay for a field trip, etc. contact Tina Duehring at 979-4051 or and she will take care of the payment from your account. It's that easy!
