Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God. –1 Peter 4:10
In order to maintain a thriving community at FPCS, each family choosing to enroll is required to select a Giving Back option. Giving Back creates a much needed volunteer base, and also provides funding (through SCRIP) to enhance and build our programs. The collective contribution of our families amplifies the sense of ownership and helps to build community. Each contribution is valuable, and with this in mind, we have three Giving Back Options allowing families to decide which option best serves their needs.
FPCS Volunteer Time
20 Hours by May 1, 2017
This option requires each family to fulfill 20 hours of volunteer time at FPCS during the 2016-2017 school year. This time requirement can be fulfilled in the classroom, on fieldtrips, planning and helping with PtC sponsored events (such as Fall Harvest Festival or the Spring Plant Sale), assisting with other school events, afterschool programs and fundraisers (such as the Auction), and other various volunteer tasks.
FPCS SCRIP Sales
$2,500 in purchases by May 1, 2017
This option requires each family to commit to a minimum of $2,500 in SCRIP purchases during the 2016-2017 school year. Our SCRIP program is a gift card fundraiser in which you would purchase gift cards totaling at least $2,500 over the course of the school year. The school receives a profit of 2%-20% from each card purchased. Our list of SCRIP cards has over 150 choices to select from and includes everyday needs such as grocery, gas, and clothing stores. One easy way to fulfill the SCRIP choice is to sign up for Revolving SCRIP. Using this option, your SCRIP can be added to your FACTS payment plan which allows you to purchase through June, 2017. Some of our most popular cards are Fred Meyer, Met Market, Safeway, Starbucks, Amazon and Target.
$200 – Due at time of enrollment
We understand that many of our families are at a place in life where volunteering or budgeting for SCRIP just isn’t feasible. This option simply gives a family the choice to pay $200 to opt-out of the required volunteer time or required SCRIP purchases. We hope you still choose to be an active part of the FPCS community and you are welcome to give volunteer time or purchase SCRIP at any time.
