ST. JOSEPH'S CATHOLIC SCHOOL
We believe the FUN and the FUND of Fundraising are equally important to the success of our school!
What is Scrip?
Scrip is a Latin term that means anything used instead of money. Scrip is nothing more than a prepaid gift card or certificate that can be used just like cash. They are the exact gift cards and certificates that you would purchase from your favorite grocery store, restaurant, department store, specialty or general retailer, and they are used the same way.
How much do families spend weekly on gasoline, groceries, clothing, fast food, toys, entertainment, home improvements, or gifts? Our goal is to turn those dollars into profit for our school! Using your everyday purchases, UnitedScrip becomes your one stop shopping center. In the 2013-2014 school year, Scrip users earned $14,469.61 for St. Joseph’s Catholic School.
Where Can I Purchase Scrip?
Scrip can be purchased via cash or check at the school office, the parish office, and after Mass. It can also be purchased directly from www.scripzone.com. Follow these directions for online purchasing.
Can I make a special order?
Yes! Orders are made at least bi-weekly. If you know you are going to start a home improvement project or need a large amount of gift cards (and don’t want to order directly from the website), you just need to let us know. If you email Julie Denini at firstname.lastname@example.org, she can help you out.

Box Tops for Education are an easy way to help St. Joseph’s Catholic School earn extra money and supplies. Simply clip and send to school with your child. Box Tops for Education can also be dropped off at the school office, Holy Grounds Café, the collection basket at Mass or St. Joseph Parish office.
Each Box Top is worth 10 cents and the money we receive can be used to purchase whatever we need to buy. Earnings checks are sent out twice a year. The goal for our school is to receive $1,000 in combined earnings checks annually. Go to www.boxtops4education.com/participating-products to find all the great products with Box Tops on them.
In enrolling a child at St. Joseph’s Catholic School, a parent agrees to give hours of service to the school and pay all tuition fees. Parents, who do not wish to give Service Hours to the school, agree to pay at the rate of $15.00 per hour.
• 30 Hours or $450.00 per family for students in Grades Kindergarten thru 8th
• 15 Hours or $225.00 per family for students in Preschool
At least 50% of your hours are to be committed to a capital project i.e. Art and Wine, Fun Run, Scrip, Yard Sale, or other approved fundraising for major school projects.
This program is designed to provide our children with the best possible benefits, and to help our school run smoothly by getting everyone involved in the effort to build community. Parents are required to work the stated hours. All exceptions need to be presented to the Principal before the event. A substitute needs to be a member of the family, 21 years of age or older.
Each family is responsible for keeping their own records current in the main office for the service hours. Service hours may be recorded by signing your name, activity and hours of service in the service hour’s book located in the office.
Record keeping begins after the last day of the current school year and ends on the last day of the next school year. Any hours turned in after the last day of school will count towards the next school year.
Some positions and activities may guarantee an automatic 30 hours: Fundraising Event Chairpersons, PTO Members, and School Advisory Council. Service hours will not be given for donated materials.
