Parent Involvement

St. Albans provides numerous opportunities to involve parents, extended family, and friends in our school community. Parents are responsible for helping to coordinate and operate many of the functions and activities that occur throughout the year. Room parents provide classroom support and assistance for classroom activities at each grade level. Parents are involved in the school as SAPA members, athletic coaches, workday workers, field trip chaperones, hot lunch workers, and as helpers during the Scholastic Book Fair, to name a few. Parents with available time and desire are always welcome able to find a way to participate in the school.

Earn Parent Participation Points and Support St. Albans with SCRIP!

SCRIP is a fundraising program that enables families to raise money for a non-profit organization. SCRIP is “substitute money” that merchants sell to St. Albans at a discounted rate in the form of gifts cards or certificates. For example each time you make a Starbucks ScripNow purchase, St. Albans will receive 7% of the sale. The rebates vary by vendor anywhere from 1.5% to 15%.

Although we no longer require families to purchase SCRIP, you can easily purchase gift cards online and still earn one Parent Participation Point for every $200 of SCRIP purchased. There are three ways to participate in the SCRIP program and all require payment with PrestoPay. We will NO LONGER ACCEPT checks at school.

We understand some reloadable cards expire after a certain amount of time or if they have not been used for an extended amount of time. Therefore, we plan to sell RELOADABLE gift cards on campus at least two times during the school year. We will be sure to add these dates to the website calendar when dates are available.
