Scrip News: November 2013

The new year is well in progress and the Scrip booth has been busy.  In addition to the normal method of scrips card purchases, Honey Creek has instituted a new online method to request gift cards through SignUpGenius.com, which everyone subscribed to the [hccs-all] mailing list should have received. A full listing of all the cards available is posted at the following website: http://www.glscrip.com/shop/Search.aspx?SearchType=2. We are working on a large binder of these cards as well as their percentage returns for display at the scrip booth. If anyone has a particular card request from this overall list or would like a hardcopy order form similar to the SignUpGenius list, please contact Jennifer Alexander at jenaalex@gmail.com.

She has plans to put together a new bulk order in the coming weeks, so get any special requests in soon!

Scrip News: May 2013

It is that time of year when we try to sell off all our remaining scrip stock, so I have attached a list of everything we have in stock. We will continue to sell scrip on Wednesday and Friday mornings and if there is anything on the list you would like to reserve, please let me know.
I have had some requests for scrip cards so I will put in an order this weekend. If you would like to place an order either e-mail me or place your order at shopwithscrip.com before Sunday. A full list of available cards is available at www.glscrip.com
Please remember that you can continue to support the PTO and Honey Creek through the summer by reloading your existing cards or ordering printable scrip online (ScripNow)! I have attached two flyers – Getting Started at shopwithscrip.com and Prestopay which outline the details but let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for supporting our scrip program – it is such a painless way to raise funds for our school and PTO without you needing to spend an extra penny!!

Scrip works a bit like gift cards. You purchase a card from us, and it works like a credit or bank card at the store (or gas station). You get the face value of the card, in other words, what you paid for the card, and we get a percentage of what you spend donated to us by the company. To order scrip, you can e-mail us, visit us at the scrip table on Wednesday and Friday mornings, or order online at www.glscrip.com. At the website you can see the full selection of scrip cards available. You can pay by cash or check, or pay online once you have set up a Presto Pay account through Shop with Scrip. Please contact us if you need more information about how to do this. You can also use the website to reload your existing cards or buy scrip certificates to print almost instantaneously. Again, please contact us for further details.

In addition to Scrip, we have rewards programs at Kroger, Meijer, Arbor Farms, and Busch’s.  For Kroger, just obtain your Kroger Plus card from the Kroger Service desk (if you already have one you can use that one- no need to obtain a new one) then enroll in their Community Rewards Program online at www.kroger.com . Select Honey Creek Community school from the list of schools. You will need to re-enroll each year. This program gives 1% back to the school. Meijer runs a similar program, and you will need a Meijer 1 card. If you don’t already have a Meijer 1 Card  you can apply in store, online at www,meijer.com/rewards or call 1-800-962-7011. Once you have the card you can link it to Honey Creek by using the school number 599628. This card gives 0.5% back with cash or pin-debit card purchases and 1% with Meijer Credit card purchases. No money to the school if paying with a non-Meijer credit card. Arbor Farms and Busch’s have Recharge cards, which work like regular Scrip, but can be refilled (instead of having to get a new card). You can buy cards for Arbor Farms at the scrip table ($20) and then refill them at the store. We also have cards for Hillers and Busch’s that have a zero starting balance. Busch’s cards need to be linked to a MyWay Account online at www.buschs.com  then pick Honey Creek from the Cash for Education school list.

If you have any questions or need more info please stop by the scrip table on Wednesday mornings by the front door or Friday mornings at the bagel sale, or send us an email anytime!

Thank you for helping support our wonderful school with scrip!

Honey Creek is Proud to Introduce the New Non-Fiction Leveled Reading Library

Research and practice have shown that providing the opportunity for children to read books at their reading level is one of the most effective ways to increase their reading skills. While our school library collection is fabulous and growing, the Common Core State Standards are placing a much bigger emphasis on nonfiction text.

Over the past year, Honey Creek students, teachers, and families have come together to raise funds for a K-8 non-fiction leveled reading library. This community effort has resulted in our school acquiring more than 1,000 new non-fiction titles. All students, in all grades, at all reading levels, will have access to these books.

We are honored and privileged both to host this collection and to have the support of such an active, engaged community.

March 6th: Join us for Honey Creek Day at California Pizza Kitchen

On Wednesday, March 6th, California Pizza Kitchen is hosting an all-day fundraising event for Honey Creek. You can:

  • Dine-In
  • Take-Out
  • Order Online
  • Cater an Event
  • Use Curbside Service

When you bring in this flyer, California Pizza Kitchen will donate 20% of your purchase to our school.

Have lunch out with friends or co-workers. Take a night off, and take the family to dinner. Pick up a pizza for later in the week. Pick up an order for everyone to bring back to the office. And please, pass the word.

There was no February PTO meeting, due to a school cancellation. However, the PTO committees are continuing to work towards a big series of Spring events: Talent Night, the Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad, the STEM Fair, Earth Day, and P.E. Play Day. All help, big and small, is valuable. If you are able to contribute by working with a committee, doing support work at home, or by volunteering the day of the event, please consider contacting a committee member now.
Walk-N-Run-A-Thon Medals: In a January assembly, students received their Walk-N-Run-A-Thon medals; and the leveled reading library was formally introduced to the school.
