St. John the Apostle Catholic School has found many ways to help support the school financially. Most of them are easy to do and don't even require extra money out of your pocket. Below are details for each of the programs you can participate in with links to specific sites to get started.
If you have questions or suggestions for additional programs, please
Need a gift card for a birthday present or want to go out to eat with your family? Buy gift cards for many of your favorite retailers, restaurants, grocery stores and more through Scrip. When you buy Scrip gift cards through our school's Scrip program, you'll receive the full value of what you paid, and the school earns an immediate rebate percentage of what you spent-typically between 3%-15%, depending on the retailer. We can use the proceeds to supplement the school budget, for tuition assistance and other expenses.
Scrip isn't just limited to the parents of our students; anyone can purchase gift cards and choose the SJS family they'd like to support. Many families use SCRIP for all their purchases.
Orders placed by noon on Monday are delivered to the school on Thursday and can sent home with your child. You can also submit your orders to the school with this
and make checks payable to SJS-SCRIP.
Register with Retailers
When making regular purchases with the retailers listed below - you can donate proceeds of your purchase to SJS:
Obtain a Community Card from the school office, then simply present the card to your cashier upon checkout. Albertsons will donate up to 3% of your total monthly purchases to SJS.
Link your Tom Thumb Reward Card to SJS #2912 . Use your card with each purchase and Tom Thumb pays SJS 1% of aggregate sales quarterly.
Designate SJS on your Target charge card and SJS will receive 1% of your Target purchases. Our school ID is 16239.
Each time you make a purchase at Office Depot, show the cashier your Office Depot card or give them the SJS ID #70099686. Office Depot will tally all SJS purchases and issue SJS a 5% credit. SJS can use this credit for FREE supplies!
Just tear off the General Mill & Yoplait symbol from specially marked boxes. Students may turn the Box Tops in to their homeroom teacher. SJS redeems Box Tops for $.10 each!
What are eBoxTops? This is another everyday way to support SJS. eBoxTops, like physical Box Tops, are worth 10¢ each for SJS. However, instead of clipping these Box Tops and sending them in to our school, eBoxTops are awarded electronically to our school earnings.
How can I earn eBoxTops? Go to
and register. Once registered you can earn points for SJS by making purchases through the site or by simply completing an online activity, such as watching a video or answering a survey for participating retailers.
You may recycle newspaper, magazines, shopping catalogs, mail, office paper, computer, posters, folders, fax paper & envelopes with & without windows. Profit is based on weight. The Knights have two recycling dumpsters (one in the church parking lot and one by the Formation Center office).
