PSA

Though the school year is coming to a close, the scrip program for Parents in Support of Academics ("PSA") Booster Club is not - it remains in effect throughout the entire year!

PSA is a group of parents that are highly motivated to support and enhance our students' high school academic experience and to support our teachers.

PSA's funding comes from eScrip, scrip card sales and wreath sales during the holidays. Our scrip program needs many supporters to be successful, so it's vitally important to us that we have YOUR support. Through scrip, you can create donations through your regular shopping - it costs nothing extra. Please take a moment to ensure you are supporting our eScrip program by logging onto www.escrip.com then click on "my escrip" on the right side of the blue band - PSA's group number is 500020531. We would love to be the group you support, but if you're already supporting another group, you can simply add PSA because you can support up to three.

In addition to eScrip, PSA sells scrip cards (gift cards). We make a percentage of each sale (though it costs you nothing more than the face value of the card). We have Stater Bros., Vons, Kmart, Starbucks, Hallmark, El Jacalito, Subway, Taco Bell, El Pollo Loco, Alpenglow Aesthetics, and many more. Go to www.scripzone.com to see what's available. An example of what you could be donating: If you spend $500 per month at Stater Bros., by purchasing scrip cards, you would be donating at least $25 per month! If you use Vons scrip cards plus you are an eScrip supporter, you create a double donation. Special bonus: I'll deliver your order, so no hassles!

You may not be aware of PSA's wide range of accomplishments over the years, so following are some of them:

- developed the quad from a dirt plot into a lovely park-like setting;
- purchased lapel microphones and costume supplies for the drama department;
- purchased a new digital marquee to enhance communication and improve the school;
- purchased 16 iPads for the English Department;
- contributed to yearbook support;
- purchased supplies for the Special Education class;
- funded teacher appreciation events;
- funded classroom supplies;
- contributed to the principal's fund;
- purchased a math program site license;
- funded the purchase of snacks for students during AP testing;
- funded a $1,000 scholarship to a BBHS student.

SCRIP
PSA sells scrip (gift cards) throughout the entire year as one of its main sources of fundraising. Our card scrip supplier is sweetening the deal on orders throughout the summer: For every individual member order placed online, our group will get one ticket in their drawing for a Brinkmann Electric Smoker and Grill, plus each individual member who orders will be entered to win one of TWO $25 gift cards from Omaha Steaks! Create a user account by logging onto www.scripzone.com then clicking the "new user" button. Our group's ID is "BBHSPSA". If you don't want to place an individual order online, you can order by emailing Patty Hafen at bbhsscrip@gmail.com and she will deliver it to you when it comes in. We also ask that all parents register their loyalty cards plus debit and credit cards at escrip.com to support ALL THREE of the high school groups. They are: BBHS Parents in Support of Academics Big Bear High School - Bear Backers, and Big Bear High School ASB. If you shop online, log onto escrip.com first then shop through the online mall. By doing this, the groups you support will earn from your purchases.
