Support the Scrip program

Thanks also to Pit Stop who will be joining the program when they reopen. We appreciate the generosity and support of our local sponsors!

What is Scrip?  CES PTO has partnered with Great Lakes Scrip Center to offer this gift card program to CES/CMS/CHS staff, families, and friends as well as anyone in the community who wishes to participate.

How does it work? Great Lakes acts on behalf on non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of Scrip cards/certificates from a wide variety of vendors. The PTO then orders the Scrip from Great Lakes at a discount, selling to you at face value. The discount is the PTO’s profit. However, we are sharing our profit with YOU! You will receive 50 percent of our rebate. We will actually write you a check at the end of the school year for what you’ve earned. You are essentially making money while you purchase items you normally buy . . . gas, groceries, clothing, dining out, etc. We are excited to announce that the local retailers mentioned above have also joined our program!
