Dear FRA Parent:
I am pleased to share some exciting news regarding the return of the
fundraising program, SCRIP, for our school. This is a fundraising program
that works while you shop. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the various
programs at FRA.
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip

Friday. The ordering forms can be found in the front office.
The FRA Scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising
program. Thanks for your support, and happy shopping!
