Scrip Program
A Special Message

To Parents of

Incoming or Returning Students in the

Loara Band Family

Q: Is your child considering joining the Loara band, drumline, color guard or cheer programs?

Q: Are you aware of the participation costs for these extra-curricular activities?

Q: Do you want to avoid having to write monthly checks to cover these costs?

If you answered “YES” to all three questions please read below to learn about the Loara Band Family’s five SCRIP programs.

 

Extra-Curricular Program Costs

School districts today do not cover most of the costs associated with extra-curricular programs such as competitive band, pageantry and cheer programs. Costs such as these are passed on to the parents of participating students. Your tax dollars, for example, do not cover any of the following costs:

§         Special instruction fees

§         Competition entry fees

§         Show design fees

§         Transportation fees

§         Costumes

§         Props

§         Band camp

§         Trips to regional/national championships

Don’t Pay – Earn!

Though families could simply pay these expenses, smart families earn funds to cover these expenses by participating in the Loara Band Family Scrip programs. Those families are able to cover up to 100% of their band or color guard expenses.

What are the Loara Band Family Scrip Programs?

The Loara Band Boosters offer five different scrip programs. Earnings that you generate from participation in any of these optional fundraisers are deposited into your Loara Band or Cheer family account – a “savings account” that you can use for all of your Loara Band or Cheer expenses.

Paper SCRIP

SCRIP is a fancy name for gift certificates. You buy gift certificates at face value for any of several dozen stores, restaurants or services listed in the ScripAdvantage catalog. A percentage of the value of each gift certificate (from 1½ to 30%) is deposited into your family account.

e-SCRIP

You register your Vons card, bank ATM and credit cards each year. Instead of buying gift certificates, a percentage of any purchase you make at Vons or one of the other listed e-SCRIP merchants is deposited into your family account.

Ralphs Club

You register your Ralphs Club card on-line each year. For each purchase you make at any Ralphs Grocery, up to 4% is deposited in your family account.

Food 4 Less

Obtain Food 4 Less Community Rewards card from the Band Boosters, then register the card on-line each year. For each purchase you make at any Food 4 Less, up to 4% is deposited into your family account.

Albertsons / Sav-on

You register your Preferred Savings Card. For each eligible purchase you make at any Albertsons or Sav-on Drugs, a percentage of your purchase is deposited into your family account.
