Deadline Extended – Gift Cards for the holidays!

Deadline has been extended on our school’s Shop with SCRIP order!  This is a wonderful and convenient way to purchase all the gift cards for your family, teachers and friends (and even to do your own shopping…you’re just pre-paying)!!!  You pay just face value of the gift certificate (same as you would pay in the store or restaurant…just without having to take the time to drive there, fight the crowds and get out in the cold!!).   The school receives a % of every sale. 
Orders can be placed online by simply printing your order receipt and sending to school with your check for payment (payable to NPE PTO), OR by completing the order form and sending into school with your payment.  Please contact Erika Twyford 861-5455 if you have any questions.  Follow this link to order online or download the order form

Here’s a quick example of how a person can save both time and money all the while earning some money for our school!
Order gift certificates from:
Applebee’s – $25 – and they’re giving New Palestine Elementary 10% of the sale, so that is 10% of $25 = $2.50
Chili’s Grill – $25 – ….11%, so that = $2.75
Barnes & Noble Teacher’s Gift Certicate – 2 at $25 – …9%, so that = $4.50
The total on the order = $100 in gift certificates that would be purchased anyway and our school would receive $9.75!!!  PLUS, I saved time by shopping conveniently at home and picking up all the cards at the same time at school!!!

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season!!!  Thanks for all your support!!!

Thanks to all the volunteers, parents and staff at NPE!!
