DISNEY TRIP INSTALLMENT DUE WED OCT 15

Dear JJP Orchestra Families,

The next Disney trip payment is coming up soon. This trip requires us to make payments to the trip company as the semester goes on.  That being said, if you have outstanding fees, those are due ASAP.  If you have not paid the September 15th trip payment, you are past due.  That means BOTH the September and October payments are due on October 15th.

After October 15th, if these payments have not been made,  your child will be dropped from the trip unless other payment arrangements have been approved by the treasurer and the PAOC Board.  As stated in the Disney Trip Agreement form, 4 payments of $250.00 are due each month, September through December.

If you have any questions, please contact:
Mary Jovicich   mary.jovicich@transwestern.com
Jennifer Wills    jennifer.wills@risd.org
Melissa Livings Melissa.livings@risd.org

Thank You, PAOC Board

SCRIP NEWS: 20 Retailers, 20 Minutes, 20% Rebate

October is going to be big! The grand finale for our 20th anniversary celebration is coming up fast, and we saved the most exciting promotion for last! For the first twenty days of the month, October 1 – 20, every day a different retailer will offer a 20% rebate for 20 minutes only.

The bonus rebate will only be available from 1:00 – 1:20 p.m. Eastern Time,that means 12:00-12:20 Dallas time.  We’ll send out an email announcing each day’s special retailer earlier that morning. Make sure you check in every day so you don’t miss one of your favorite stores.  We’ll post updates on theShopWithScrip® Facebook page too, so follow us there so you can see updates right in your Newsfeed.

This is one of our most exciting promotions yet, and we know how popular it will be for all of our scrip families and organizations!  In order to offer this very special promotion we will need to limit the amount of scrip that can be purchased at the special 20% rebate, translating into scholarship credit in your child’s ledger.  Each scrip family will be able to order a maximum of $1,000 at the special 20% rebate. The limits will apply each day to the retailer offering the special bonus.  Get ready for October 1!

Please note: Bonus rebates will be applied to all ShopWithScrip family orders placed during the 20 minute promotion, regardless of when they are rolled up and placed by the organization.

Carol McBroom will be placing orders for Pearce Orchestra SCRIP on Oct 10 and Oct. 24.  If the checks are not in the vault on those Fridays, she cannot include them in the order.  Of course those using PrestoPay will have their orders paid for automatically. F YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT CAROL MCBROOM at carol.mcbroom@risd.org
