Scrip/Gift Cards



5% Benefit for the Band

Would you like to save money on band trip expenses? The Band Parent Association sells $100 gift cards, called "Scrip" for Giant and Safeway that we buy at a discount -- and we share that discount with band families by reducing the cost of band trips.

4% Benefit for the Band
For every $100 in Giant cards you buy, the band families benefit with $5 off the cost of the spring band trip.
For every $100 in Safeway cards you buy, the band families benefit with $4 off the cost of the spring band trip.
The more Scrip cards you purchase, the more we all save!

During the school year, Scrip will be for sale at concerts, band parent meetings, and football games. In between, or if these times are not convenient for you, please call or email to make arrangements to pick up Scrip cards.
