Straight from the SCRIP Coordinator...

Scrip is completely voluntary. There are no purchase requirements that must be met before you earn credit. Everything you earn from the first purchase, 75% will be applied as a credit to your FACTS account and can be used toward your May tuition payment. Credits will be applied in December and in April but will go toward your May tuition payment. For example: You purchase $200 of Kroger Scrip. Kroger has a 4% discount. $200 x 4% = $8. $8 x 75% = $6. You have earned $6 which will be applied to your FACTS account and can be deducted from your May tuition. $6.00 doesn’t seem like a lot of money, but what if you purchase that every week for the next 32 weeks? $6 x 32 = $192 credit earned towards your May tuition payment just for buying groceries. Now what if you add movies, restaurants, Christmas and birthday gifts, sporting goods to your Scrip purchases, how much could you earn in Scrip credit towards your May tuition?


If you have prepaid your tuition for the year, credit earned will be applied to any outstanding balances, and then any remaining scrip credit can be used for additional Scrip purchases. If you have more questions regarding Scrip, please contact Kimberlee Glover.

Prayers

Please keep the Coffey family (Callan, 3rd & Robyn, DD Chair) in your prayers as they mourn the loss of their precious grandmother and mother, Royce Lynn Larson.


Continue to pray for our Bishop, priests, administrators, educators, and parents as we continue to guide these young disciples closer to Christ.
