New Family Commitment Requirements for the 2015-2016 School Year!
The Fundraising requirement of family commitment at SLEMS has been simplified. Families are responsible for a given amount of money ($350 for families with 1 child, $500 for families with 2 or more children). This financial commitment can be satisfied by any combination of the following fundraising opportunities:
Pledges for the Walk-a-Thon ($1 credit per $1 in pledges)
Purchases of Luck of Saint Lawrence Lottery tickets ($1 credit per $1 of tickets sold)
Participation in Dine Out Nights (credited at 15-20% of total purchase depending on restaurant)
SCRIP/eScrip (credited at a rate of 5% of gross purchase, i.e. $2000 in gross scrip/eScrip purchases earns $100 of credit). SCRIP is available online 24/7 through Koincloud and can be purchased on Wednesday mornings in the school office and after Sunday masses. Instructions for registering for Koincloud, eSCRIP and Scrip order forms are available on the school website.
Specified events and opportunities throughout the year listed in Connections
NOTE: eSCRIP no longer counts Safeway purchases. eScrip purchases at other qualified merchants will still count toward your gross scrip purchase total.
There are many opportunities to fill in your service hours. Restoration days, helping at PTG and Development events, and yard duty are just a few service opportunities. Service opportunities will be posted on Connections and the school website.
Unfulfilled Family Commitments will be itemized in a spring report to families. Families will have the option to buy out remaining commitments at this time. Buy outs occur at a rate of one dollar for ever under-fundraised dollar and $20/hour for unfulfilled service hours.
