Scrip News

Scrip is due on Friday (Sept. 11th) by noon in the Scrip box which is located in the lobby.

The Scrip Store will be open after school on Thursday and on hand inventory will be available. There is some Domino’s Scrip in the on hand inventory that could be used for Domino’s night on Thursday night and it's available on a first come first serve basis.

A couple of new changes:
Menards now has a $500 certificate available in addition to their $25 and $100.
Carter’s/Oshkosh B’Gosh has joined the Scrip program. They offer a 10% profit.
These are not on the sheet yet but will be added the next time I make changes.

We will order weekly from now until mid December, but there will be no order on November 20 according to the Network schedule.

Please let Tina know if you need any payouts for lunches, school fees, pictures, etc. or 920-979-4051

Who likes FREE money?

SCRIP is the easiest way to earn yourself some FREE money and also help out your school. While shopping where you normally shop, 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! We have many families that use Scrip and have never paid for a school lunch out of their own pocket, they just use their Scrip funds.
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 4% and Panera 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. 

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!

***Tina has done an amazing job with our Scrip program and only has one school year left at Lakeshore after this year. We are looking for someone to shadow her this year to possibly take over Scrip the next school year.  Please contact Tina if you're interested in helping your school by chairing Scrip in the future. Thank you!
