Staff Christmas Gift Program
How the Christmas Gift Program Works
How are the gifts disbursed?
The amount designated to each staff member will be totaled. They will receive a gift certificate stating the total amount they received, and also listing the students and/or families who have given to them - all gift amounts are kept confidential. The staff member will exchange their gift certificate for SCRIP gift cards of their choice. Gift certificates will be delivered to the staff members the week of December 12th so they can use them well before Christmas.
Why do we encourage using the Christmas Gift Program rather than asking the school to distribute a Christmas cash bonus?
By using the Christmas Gift Program and allowing gifts to be given from families directly to staff members, the school avoids withholding 44% bonus taxes. Also, as with the Tuition Credit Program, the school receives an additional average of 5-7% back from this program.
