SCRIP- “Substitute for money”
SCRIP is one of the larger fund raising programs at St Joseph School. The program requires no out-of-pocket expenses and allows the school to earn profit off local merchants you already frequent. The St. Joseph Home & School Association purchases gift cards to local merchants at a discount, from 2% - 15%. The SCRIP committee then sells you the gift cards at face value, with the difference going to St. Joseph School as profits earned. “In-stock” gift cards to local grocery and gas stations are available weekly. Many national chains are offered as “Pre-Ordered” merchants. In most instances, these gift cards are received within one week.
We need your support as we kick off the 2009-2010 SCRIP fund raising year. This year’s goal has been set at $25,000.00.

- Scrip Update July 2011
Dear St Joseph Families,
As the summer winds down, we begin to think about the upcoming school year. In the first two weeks of school you will receive a lot of information on various school event, clubs and overall school happenings, we wanted to take time BEFORE the school year begins and send you an update on scrip. Each family is required to earn $150 ($100 for new families) in scrip every school year. If you are unfamiliar with this, please review the info at http://www.school.stjosephbristol.org/scrip-program This requirement helps fund various school activities, clubs and also helps contribute to the overall operating budget for the school.
Based on the various information packets you will receive in the first two weeks of school and the “information overload”, the scrip committee will be holding off sending out any info until mid September. We do want you to be aware of a few available times to buy scrip between now and the time this information is sent out.
