• Dear Grove Parents,


    Thank you to all of you that have supported our school by talking about and purchasing scrip! All of your scrip purchases continue to earn funds for our school.

     

    For those of you new to scrip: What is it and how does it work?

    Our scrip program doesn’t ask students to sell products to friends or family. It simply empowers Grove families to raise funds just by using scrip gift cards to do their everyday shopping – no extra spending required! When you order gift cards through Grove PTO's scrip program, you’ll receive the full face value of what you paid, and the PTO will earn an immediate rebate percentage of what you have spent – typically between 3% and 15%, depending on the retailer. As an example, something as simple as a family dinner at Chili’s – admittedly not your typical fundraising activity – could earn the PTO 11% of your spending. Our school can use the proceeds to save up toward goals like special events, field trips, technology, new equipment for the school, or supplies for teachers. Scrip fundraising allows families in our school to contribute by shopping wisely and using scrip gift cards to pay for their household spending.

     

    How to order?

    The process is simple! Think about where you will shop this month – how much you will spend on groceries, gas, household items, clothing, gifts, dining out, even coffee shops and movie nights! 

    • Download an order form from this webpage to order your scrip gift cards from a selection of popular national retailers. Turn in the completed form with payment to your child’s teacher or the Grove office in time for order day.
    • Pick up your gift cards at Grove Elementary School on the order pick up date and time (see order and pick up dates below).  Orders can also be arranged for collection at the Grove office by contacting Alicia Butler butlera@myunit5.org
