From cool school fundraising events to box tops and scrips cards – it has never been easier to support the Didion community. It doesn’t take much to make a difference. Here’s an example of your shopping dollars at work:
20 families spend $200 each per month x 1%= $40/month x 12 months= $480
Now we increase the 20 families to 400 families
400 families spend $200/each per month x 1%= $800/month x 12 months $9600.00
Below is a list of upcoming fundraising events as well as several other effortless ways you and your extended family can start help raising funds for Didion today. As always, we appreciate your time and support in helping our community thrive!

Bob tops, Box tops everywhere. From Cheerios and Kleenex to Fruit roll-ups and Ziploc bags, it has never been easier raising money for Didion. Simply cut off the box tops and turn them into your child’s teacher. Each box top is worth $0.10 for Didion.
For a full list of participating products click here or register at Box Tops for Education to start earning free money for our school. Log in regularly to enter contests to benefit our school, order supplies from a teacher’s wish list, or shop online at stores that contribute a percentage of your purchases to Genevieve Didion.
Free pick-up of e-waste at your home/business! Simply fill in your info and select “Genevieve Didion PTA” as the beneficiary. They will pick-up your e-waste for free.

In addition to the 5% back in rewards all members earn, parents can now earn extra rewards for the teacher of their choice with the Reward A Classroom program. Here’s what teachers get when Didion families shop:
2% back in rewards on everything, excluding postage, phone/gift cards and savings passes
5% back in rewards on every Copy & Print purchase
Teachers can earn up to $50 from as many as 40 parents each year. That’s as much as $2,000 back in rewards every year for our schools teachers.
eScrip is an easy program for school fundraising where participating business partners contribute a percentage of your grocery loyalty cards (i.e. Safeway), credit card and debit card purchases to Didion K-8. You simply shop as you normally would at participating merchants with your registered credit cards that you already have and use and eScrip makes a donation each quarter back to Didion. It is that simple.
How do I edit my eScrip account to add credit cards, make changes, etc.?
Register any one or all of your existing grocery loyalty, debit and credit cards with eScrip.com. Participating restaurants will automatically make contributions to Didion K-8 School, based on purchases made by you, just by using the cards you have registered on eScrip.
Didion receives an additional 2.5% when you complete the post-dine survey that is sent in your benefit confirmation email. (A benefit confirmation email is an email that’s sent to you shortly after each time you dine. It tells you how much you earned when you dined.)
Formerly the Quality of Life Card, the new Something Extra cards allow you to track purchases. Enroll now at Raleys.com and designate organizations such as Didion to get 1-4% back on all your Raley’s purchases. On the new system a card is no longer needed but still available. Now you can simply enter your phone number during the checkout process when prompted.
Use the new Nugget Scrip Cards for your Nugget purchases and HSPS receives up to 4% of your monthly grocery bill. Pick up your scrip card in the school office. Families will need to activate their own Nugget Scrip card online. Nugget scrip no longer requires families to preload their scrip cards prior to purchases. Multiple cards can be registered under one family name so that cumulative monthly purchases from extended family and friends will earn a greater percentage for our school.
E-mail updates are a great way to keep up with what’s going on at Didion! From our bi-monthly school newsletter to information specific to our K-6 or Middle School programs, it has never been easier to stay connected. Simply choose from the list below which group you would like to join.
We promise to only send you information pertinent to our school or district, and will never share your email address with anyone. Every message will include a link allowing you to unsubscribe at any time.
And don’t forget to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to ensure none of the school updates go into your Spam or Junk folders.
