PTA Fundraisers, Grocery Cards & Scrip
Hello Families,
Thank you for attending Back to School Night. As mentioned in the meeting, below you will find the PTA forms. In effort to save trees, we are going paperless and requesting information this way. Please let any of the board members know if you have any questions. We are in this together!
There are so many fun things we do throughout the year that both you and your child will enjoy. Every month we will host a  Dine Out Night , please save the dates.  We will have other fundraisers and they will be posted on the schools website for easy access. One last thing, please make sure to select our charity ' Our Lady of Hope Parish ' for This is a super easy way to help support our school raise funds with your everyday shopping. We have attached the flyer with instructions.
Let's not forget about  Hot Lunch.  We are still looking for volunteers to help us. Please contact Lori DeLeonardis for more information. If you have a grandmother or grandfather who wants to help as well, we welcome all family members. 
Lastly, be on the look out for emails from your  Class Leaders . They will be reaching out with the best way to communicate with you. They are so essential to the success of the PTA, they help to keep you informed in our busy lives. We know you don't want to miss out on any of the fun here at St Jerome School.
Have a great rest of the week. If you need anything at all please contact the board member you feel most comfortable with. Our contact card is attached.

Grocery Store Cards 

Supermarket gift cards are available for ShopRite, Wegmans, Foodtown and Stop and Shop. Cards are available in denominations of $25, $50 and $100. School parents are eligible to enroll in an automatic program whereby they are notified once (or twice) a month that their cards are available in the school office.

Those who do not have children in Saint Jerome School can easily participate by sending an e-mail to Melissa Matier at with your order. Arrangements can then be made to pick up the cards at either the school office or the rectory office. Payment can be cash or a check made payable to St. Jerome PTA . The participating supermarkets discount the card cost to the school by 5%. The purchaser receives the full face value of the card.  This program is ongoing 12 months a year.


Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop

The Scrip Program runs twice a year and includes many chain restaurants, fast food establishments, department stores and many of the specialty stores found in the malls. A full list of participating stores can be found on . By simply planning ahead on everyday purchases like groceries, gas, restaurants, clothes, entertainment and home repair, the average family can earn at least $11 a week. That modest number adds up quickly - over $500 a year for an average family is not unusual. The percentages earned by the school vary according to the specific business, but generally average 8%. The first round of "scrip" is usually held in mid to late November and the second round in late April or May.

Anyone interested in helping the school by participating should send an e-mail to   and you will be provided with order forms when they are available. A check made payable to St. Jerome PTA must accompany the order. Gift cards will normally be available for pickup at the school office or rectory office within a week of the ordering deadline.
