SACRED HEART SCHOOL SCRIP PROGRAM

Welcome back! As we begin the new school year, we would like to invite you to participate in the SCRIP program, through which you can receive a tuition discount and make a donation to SHS just by food shopping!

WHAT IS SCRIP?

Scrip is gift cards purchased for the following food stores/supermarkets: Giant, Acme, ShopRite, Colonial Village, and Swiss Farms. Sacred Heart Home and School Association purchases these gift cards in bulk at a 5% discount. This discount is then distributed evenly between Home and School (2.5%) and Sacred Heart families (2.5%). For every $100 purchased, you will earn $2.50. At a minimum, if you spend $100 per week for 52 weeks, you would receive a discount of $130 on your tuition. Top buyers have saved up to $600 a year!

WHEN CAN SCRIP BE PURCHASED?

  • Tuesdays — 9:30 – 11:30 in school for walk-in orders; orders sent into school/backorders can be picked up as well
  • Thursdays — NO walk-ins, but orders sent into the office will be filled and ready for pick up by 1:00
  • Sundays — sold in parish business center
    • After the 9:00 & 10:30 masses during regular mass schedule
    • From 9:30-11:30 during the summer mass schedule

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SCRIP PROGRAM?

Families with children in grades Pre-K to 8 are eligible to participate. Additionally, families with children in local archdiocesan high schools are also able to participate in the SHS Scrip program.

HOW IS THE TUITION DISCOUNT GIVEN?

Sales are tallied over two 6-month periods: July-December and January-June. Amounts are combined with the proceeds from the Fun Money program (if used) and a voucher is given to each family shortly after the period ends that can be used as credit towards a future tuition payment. For high school families, a check will be written directly to the school on behalf of each family.

QUESTIONS?

Please contact Amy Bauer (610-609-1661 or crawfordbauer@verizon.net) or

BE SURE TO SPREAD THE WORD TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS! THE MORE YOU BUY, THE GREATER THE BENEFIT TO SHS AND TO YOU! THANK YOU!

Sacred Heart Scrip and Fun Money and Tuition Assistance Programs

The Fun Money and Scrip programs were established to offer Sacred Heart School families a discount on school tuition, and to help raise funds for the Home and School Association. Participating school families receive a tuition credit of 2.5% with Home and School receiving the remainder. Each time a purchase is made, the family name and purchase amount is recorded on a log by the seller. After a six month period, the purchases are tallied, a credit is calculated, and a voucher is issued, to be included with your subsequent tuition payment. Sales are tallied over 2 six month periods: January-June and July-December. Families with children in the local Archdiocesan High Schools can also participate.

For every $100 purchased, you earn a discount of $2.50. At a minimum, if you spend $100 per week for 52 weeks, you can receive a discount of $130 on our tuition! Our top buyer has saved over $600 this school year on tuition.

Spread the word to your family and friends! It’s a great way for them to assist in your child’s education and to help our school! As long as they give your family name at the time of the sale you will receive the credits.

Scrip includes: Giant, Acme, ShopRite, Colonial Village, and Swiss Farms. Fun Money has access to over 100 retail, entertainment and food establishments. We carry over 30 of these in stock.

Cyber-bullying, Lunch Moms & Red and White Day

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It was good to see everyone last evening! Thank you for coming and meeting our teachers and helping us insure that this will be a very good year for your child/ren. As I mentioned, we are holding a meeting about the challenges parents face with children accessing the internet. Cyber-bullying will also be a topic. This event is being coordinated by State Representative Jamie Santora. The District Attorney’s office will be present as will members of the police department. While all parents are most welcome, this meeting is mandatory for parents with students in grades 5 to 8.

Important: New research offers a compelling reason for parents to ban smartphones, tablets and laptops in their children’s bedrooms at night: The bright light of these devices may lower levels of melatonin, a hormone that prompts sleep. The effect was most pronounced for children entering puberty, with nighttime melatonin levels suppressed by up to 37 percent in some cases, the investigators found. (HealthDay News)

As I mentioned last night, our volunteers fill a crucial role here at Sacred Heart. You are very much needed (and appreciated!) We are in need of volunteers for lunch duty and assisting teachers in the Science Lab, as well as, after school clubs. If you are willing to help out, please let your child’s teacher know when you are available. Lunch duty requires a commitment once a week.

PreK 11:30 – 12:30 needed on Wednesday and Thursday or Friday

Kindergarten 11:30 – 12:30 needed on Tuesday, Thursday,

Grades 1 – 8 11:20 – 12:45 needed on Tuesday or Thursday
