Scrip Card Orders and Teacher Favorites Lists

With the holidays fast approaching, PTO would like you to consider using our Scrip Program for your gift card purchases. Each teacher and staff member at WME have filled out their Favorite Things and included are their favorite Scrip gift cards to receive! You can find these on our Staff Favorites Lists Page on our website.

If you aren’t familiar with Scrip, please visit the Scrip Gift Card Program Page on our website to learn how to help WME PTO earn a percentage of your gift card purchase! We will start selling Scrip gift cards after school in December and will also have them at the Bazaar on December 7th!
