Your child will be coming home with a blue order form for SCRIP gift cards in his or her folder. Please take a look at it, and consider ordering gift cards for Black Friday, while benefiting our amazing school! What an easy way to do all of your Black Friday shopping using gift cards! Gift cards make wonderful gifts for teachers, baby sitters and coaches as well! Also, you can purchase gift cards for stores that you already frequent, such as supermarkets, department stores, gas stations or restaurants. This is a convenient way to do your gift and household shopping, while earning money for Salem! SCRIP participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our non-profit organization at a discount.
You buy the gift cards for full face value, redeem them for full face value, and our school receives a percentage as revenue. With SCRIP everybody wins!

Please see the attached order form, or the order form your child will come home with for further details. If you have any questions, please contact Bonnie Tanguay at JBCTanguay@gmail.com.
