SCRIP

SCRIP - NORMAL PURCHASES EARN FOR COUNTRY LANE Science Camp!  

Buy Scrip cards at Country Lane and earn for our amazing Science Camp!

Scrip is simply a gift certificate or gift card from retailers. It is accepted the same as cash just like gift cards you buy at the store. In California, gift certificates/cards don't expire!  Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Safeway, Starbucks, The Gap, Shell, and many, many others. Purchase online or in the morning on Mondays, through Fridays (outside the School Office). Tables are open from 8:25am to 8:40am.  If you can't come at those times, you may leave your order and payment in the office with Mrs. Myers and pick it up another day.

How does scrip generate revenue?

Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the gift cards for full face value, then redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. With each purchase, you can earn revenue for your child's science camp account (5th grade week-long trip to Marin Headlands that costs about $450 per child) and our school's general science camp fund that funds our teachers fees, the bus ride and scholarships.

What are the benefits of our SCRIP Program?

  • Order online with ShopWithScrip.com
  • Electronic payment option – don’t have to visit Scrip table
  • Order gift cards that we don’t stock once a month
  • See your purchases online.
  • Less plastic with reloadable cards and electronic Scrip
  • Can order through the summer
