Sailor Band Families,
Today we are kicking off a fundraiser specifically designed to benefit the individual students in our band, as well as the band program itself.. Many of you already utilize our SCRIP program, and the purpose of this fundraiser is to potentially expand usage for those already participating and bring new families into the program. For those of you not familiar with the program, SCRIP allows you to purchase gift cards for dozens of area businesses and national chains at face value with a percentage returned to you into your Families band account. Money in your band account can be used for any Mona Shores purchase including band related expenses, class rings, yearbooks, caps and gowns, school lunches and many other things. This account remains open in your family's name as long as you have students in Mona Shores Public Schools, regardless of whether your student is a member of the band program. Many of our families raise hundreds of dollars simply purchasing things they would already be buying. For more information, please visit https://www.monashoresbands.org/scrip
Early this week, students will bring home a packet describing the program along with an order form. SCRIP runs on Wednesday evenings, but for the next two weeks, students may bring order forms and payments for gift cards on Monday or Tuesday and will receive those cards in class on Thursday or Friday. If you are not already a SCRIP user, we would encourage you to give it a try. Please also know that other family members or friends can buy SCRIP on behalf of a band student and the money raised will go to that student. Here is a link to an informational and promotional video about our SCRIP that we encourage you to watch and pass on to other potential customers. https://drive.google.com/file/d/107lLDSgrv6r_-fa-982BcIbNNX6iqUqS/view?usp=sharing
We will have prizes for students who generate the most new customers. For your convenience, SCRIP can also be purchased and delivered online--Instructions for this are included in today’s handout and on the website
