Letter from our Dean
Dear Families,

What an amazing way to close the book of 2017 - between field trips, storytelling, potlucks, plays, caroling, instrumental concerts, baking, eating, card making, candle making, gift wrapping…

All of our hearts are full.
Thank you for your gifts.
Thank you for your support in the classroom and school-wide.
Thank you for your hugs and words of kindness.
Thank you for your children!

We all wish you holidays filled with meaning, love, light, peace, depth, laughter, delicious food, and physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018!

The Entire Maple Village School Faculty and Staff (some of us pictured below at our holiday party!)

Double Up on Scrip from Amazon.com

Did you know that you can earn Amazon.com scrip from two sources at once? Purchase a ScripNow e-gift card from shopwithscrip.com (can be easily done from your smartphone or your computer) before checkout to pay for your purchases from smile.amazon.com and earn scrip from both the website (0.5%) and the e-gift card (2.5% plus any bonuses offered).

To purchase a ScripNow e-gift card from Amazon or any other participating retailer:

  1. First sign up for an account with shopwithscrip.com and sign up for Presto Pay electronic payments. Select Maple Village as your recipient organization.
  2. Login to the website and select “Shop” to browse retailers, or select “Order” if you have installed the My Scrip Wallet app on your smartphone.
  3. Select the desired retailer, select the “ScripNow” e-card tab (if available), and enter the desired card amount. Click “Add to Cart”.
  4. Click on “Cart” when you are ready to checkout, enter your PrestoPay PIN number, and click “Submit Order”. Your e-gift card will be ready for use in a minute or two.

Send ShopWithScrip e-gift cards as gifts this holiday season:

Earn scrip for Maple Willage by sending gift cards through the shopwithscrip.com website. All you need to do is follow the steps above but be sure to check the box “Make this a gift?” when you are choosing the gift card amount and enter the recipient information as prompted.

Be sure to sign up for the E-scrip website and register your credit cards.

In addition to smile.amazon.com, online shopping through the e-scrip portal on escrip.com earns scrip for Maple Village. After signing up and choosing Maple Village as your target organization, just click on “Shops” after signing in, search for a favorite retailer, and click on that retailer’s icon to earn scrip while shopping.

You can also register your credit cards on the escrip.com website to earn scrip automatically at popular local restaurants such as Tavern on 2, La Parolaccia, Number Nine, and Canadian Pizza. You will earn scrip when you pay with your credit cards without taking any additional steps.

Scripping is so easy, and the school earns money for FREE!
