Scrip is a convenient way to fundraise for your student’s band account: using gift cards to turn everyday shopping into earnings. Purchase gift cards to earn a percentage on gas, groceries, eating out, clothes—the list goes on! Cards can be gifts OR for places you shop all the time!


Go to  Select to join the program. Our enrollment code: F8AE124C1676L. You enter your student’s name when you sign up so funds go directly toward your student’s account. You can order plastic gift cards (4 or 5 times a year I send orders to help with shipping costs) or download electronic eGift cards to use immediately for restaurants, grocery stores, home improvement, travel, and more. You can receive 2.5% to 16% back for your band student’s fees. You can pay by credit card (but there is a service fee). Connecting to a bank account for “presto pay” is quick, easy, and the fee is much less. Questions? Contact the SCRIP Coordinator.

Watch this space for upcoming dining fundraisers! On designated days, dine at selected locations, show a flyer and a portion of the check will go to the marching band! 


Band Cards


Students sell discount cards and keep a portion of the card price for their band accounts. Cards have discounts to local restaurants and businesses and are good for the entire year! Watch for upcoming sale dates. Questions? Contact the directors for the latest information.


Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash


Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash occurs each October. Students sell duck “adoptions” which enter the purchaser in a raffle for prizes. Thousands of numbered rubber “Duckies” are dropped into the pond at Mill Race Park, with winning ducks drawn out at random. Students get 80% of their sales for the band accounts which makes this a very profitable fundraiser! Sale generally starts at the end of summer band camp and runs until the end of September. Watch the newsletter announcements for this year’s key dates. Questions? Contact the Kiwanis Ducks coordinator.
