SCRIP – Special Offers November 21: GET READY
NO ORDERS THE WEEK PRIOR TO THANKSGIVING, OR THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING. Please plan accordingly. Safeway is still unavailable for order, but I hope to get it back as soon as possible. Do your SCRIP planning prior to the next order, and have it all ready to go!
Don’t forget about “Thank-Scrip-ing-Day” on November 21! Get ready for all your Black Friday and Holiday Shopping with 24 hours of incredible ScripNow®, Reload, and ReloadNow® bonuses from dozens of your favorite retailers. The list of retailers is TOP SECRET, so you’ll have to wait until the promotion begins to see who’s participating.
To participate, you just need a ShopWithScrip® account, and you must be able to login to place online orders. Click here to learn about PrestoPay™, the secure online payment system. Sign up ASAP if you haven’t already so you can receive your ScripNow eCards and add funds using ReloadNow in minutes, or use Reload to add funds overnight!* Plus, with PrestoPay you can place your Thank-Scrip-ing Day order with MyScripWallet™, the mobile scrip experience. You can still participate and receive bonuses if you pay by check, as long as you place your orders within the 24 hours, you just won’t receive your scrip until your coordinator releases the order.

Classroom Auction Projects
It is that time of year to look for classroom auction project coordinators. These are people who volunteer to work with the teacher and students to create Amazing items that will be bid on during the Live Auction of our 2018 St. Mary Auction April 28th.
Please contact Missi Vaughn via text message at 971-599-0656 or email@example.com to secure your volunteer slot. We need at least one parent from each grade below to help coordinate projects . This is a great way to earn share hours and work on projects that are some of our highest bidding items! Once volunteers have been assigned I will work with each of you on ideas and looks to help get your project started.
Please see the needed grades below:
