Save money on your next tuition bill!
Looking to save money on your next tuition bill and raise money for the school? Many school families already participate in our TRIP program and earn back monthly rebates towards their tuition. Families order gift cards through the Great Lakes Scrip Program and receive back a rebate percentage on each card which is then applied towards tuition. We would love to add new families to this program!
Create your own online TRIP account by signing up at https://www.shopwithscrip.com/ and place an order for next week to start earning money towards your tuition. The code to create an account is 2CL3966D181. Our next TRIP order will be placed on Monday, February 26th. Please have your payment into the school office by 9:00 AM. If you have any questions about the program, please contact the school office.
TRIP Helper needed
We are looking for someone who might be able to take over processing TRIP orders on a weekly basis for our families. No experience necessary - we will train you! The volunteer would need to be available on Monday mornings to place the orders with Great Lakes Scrip Center. It normally takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get everything processed. Please contact Mrs. Wirkus in the school office if you might be able to help. Thank you!
