"Scrip" is a term that means "substitute money". When you purchase scrip from St. Mary School, you're purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. The scrip is issued by the national and local retailers where many of you already shop. These merchants want to support us and in return ask you to support them by shopping at their stores. You can use scrip to purchase everday expenses like food, clothing, groceries, and other essentials and with every purchase, you earn revenue for our school and church.
