Fundraising is an essential part to any school’s extended opportunities such as special programs (fairs, fun days, ice cream socials, trips, etc.) equipment (gym, smart boards, software programs, special textbooks, etc.) and in some cases supplementing the overall cost to educate the students, OUR children.
We know that you pay tuition, but did you know that your tuition is only a portion of what it costs to educate each child. We value the amazing faith, support and educational opportunities that St. Paul School offers which are above and beyond the state recommendations and no PARCC testing! We have more scheduled physical education days than other schools, we have Spanish taught by a a highly qualified teacher not a software program – in fact our 8th graders are offered the opportunity to test into Spanish II when they enter H.S. We can enhance the opportunities offered to our children and foster more opportunities through our fundraising efforts.
SPS currently does not have a mandatory fundraising amount, but we strongly encourage and need our families to be involved in our various fundraising events and our ongoing initiatives.
The Fundraisers that have been scheduled for this year will appear in the newsletter, on the school calendar and in the running “upcoming events” on the front of the SPS website. Please participate – enlist friends, families and neighbors too! We are adding and updating our fundraisers all the time, so check back often. And if you have an idea for a fundraiser, let us know!
Although we will have several big fundraising events that we encourage you to support, there are some that are on-going. Please see the additional pages for information on our Scrip Program, GoFundMe account, GoodSearch and Westampton Car Wash & Quick Lube offer. Remember the Donate Tab on the Main Page of the St. Paul School website is a great way to support St. Paul School – anyone can donate at any time and this money goes directly to St. Paul School. Please share this information with family that may live far away.
Scrip Program – Gift Card Fundraising - This one puts money in your pocket and helps SPS. All you have to do is shop for items you are already shopping for at stores like Shop Rite, Target, Wawa, Kohl’s, Acme and more through our SCRIP Program.
You pay face value for gift cards from common retailers and you will earn a percentage back for your tuition for the next school year and for the school. SCRIP does not cost you anything to participate. You get the full value of your gift card. The retailers make the donations when you buy your card.
SCRIP cards are perfect for teacher gifts, birthday gifts for classmates, Christmas shopping, and even for paying your bill at Kohl’s (yes, you can use the SCRIP fundraising gift cards to pay your credit card bill at the Kohl’s store).
See the SCRIP TAB for more information. There is an activation code (D4FC541L13322) that will link you to St. Paul School Scrip for on-line ordering. You can sign up at http://www.shopwithscrip.com.
