SCRIP

What is SCRIP??

It is one of the easiest ways to support our school without spending anything extra.  What does that mean? When Jackson Academy of Math and Music sells Scrip, we are taking advantage of EARNING money for our school.  If you have ever used a gift card, then you’ve used Scrip.  We are not asking you to spend any more money on something that you would never use.  We are asking you to PLAN AHEAD and purchase scrip and then go do your normal day to day shopping.

OLD WAY OF SHOPPING

NEW WAY OF SHOPPING WITH SCRIP

The aim is to enhance the way you use your money.  By looking at your upcoming expenses and purchasing scrip, you can spend the same amount of money and pay with the pre-paid cards / scrip gift cards.  The benefits are many …

  • Budget – it helps you to stay within your budget when making your regular purchases, holiday planning and birthday gift planning
  • Convenience – it is easy to store and use when shopping, to use to pay for a gift or give as a gift
  • Variety – we offer a nice variety of gas stations, retail stores and restaurants (both chains and local merchants)
  • Fundraiser – this is the easiest fundraiser for your child’s school to help supplement our additional costs to provide the best education experience for our little Jaguars

A POSSIBLE GOAL FOR ALL FAMILIES:
If each family can plan ahead and spend $100-$200 per month on scrip, Jackson Academy could raise $3,000 – $4,000.  That is huge for merely shopping at the store you were already planning to go to.  This could help benefit the necessary improvements around school (Kinder playground, piano lab added accessories, etc.).
The program works best when you get your own personal community involved:  parents, friends, relatives, and others to purchase Scrip through Jackson Academy of Math and Music.
Scrip is available from many local and national merchants.  Many of which you may frequent during many of your weekly activities.  Some examples include Safeway, Target, Wal-Mart, Nob Hill, Home Depot, Starbucks, Chili’s, Red Robin, Shell, Arco, Lowe’s, Kohl’s, AMC Theatres, CVS Pharmacy, Baskin Robbins, Subway, Carl’s Jr., etc.
