CALL FOR ARTISTS

Don’t Forget to Shop with Scrip this Holiday Season!

View Full Flyer

Please consider giving the gift that truly gives back to the school. Whether you purchase gift cards to give as gifts or simply to do your holiday shopping, our school PTA receives a percentage of the value which is used to help fund assemblies and school trips.

Please use the order form in the flyer link above containing a select list of local participating stores to place your order. For example, if you purchase a $100 gift card from Old Navy the school gets 14% (as shown on the order form). So you spend $100 for a $100 gift card and the school makes $14.00!

You have 2 opportunities to order prior to the holidays:

You can also place your gift card orders online. Joining is simple.
Go to https://www.shopwithscrip.com/ and click “Join a Program”
Enter the Rockaway Meadow School enrollment code L111EBCF22L34
and complete the online form and then send your payment to school.

Whether ordering online or using the attached order form, please send your order and payment to school in an envelope marked ‘PTA Scrip Fundraiser’. Be sure to include your name, your child’s name, grade and teacher, as well as a contact number or email so we can reach you to insure that you get your order.

Thank you for your support!
