Get on Track 2014
St. John’s Lutheran School’s Jog-a-thon
Get on Track is an annual event which raises funds for St. John’s Lutheran School’s Association of Parents and Teachers (APT). APT funds many of the programs at our school such as art, physical education, music, technology and extra materials for our classrooms. Also, 25% of pledges raised are contributed to our class-sponsored, non-profit organizations. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans is partnering with St. John’s Lutheran School by providing $100 for each classroom charity. Along with raising money, our mission is to involve our children in a service project while working toward a goal, having fun, and being active!
This year’s class charities are:
Preschool: COPE Family Center
Kindergarten: Compassion International
First Grade: The Table
Second Grade: Pink Heals Napa Valley
Third Grade: Lutheran World Relief
Fourth Grade: Clinica Verde
Fifth Grade: The Pathway Home
Sixth Grade: Bethlehem We Care
Seventh Grade: Options3
Eighth Grade: Tug McGraw Foundation
We invite you to show your support for St. John’s Lutheran School by becoming a sponsor of this fun annual event. All sponsors will be listed on the back of the event t-shirt. Two levels of sponsorship are available: $100 (for a name listing) or $250 (for a logo listing). Organizations as well as individuals and families may be sponsors. Over 400 t-shirts will be printed. Sponsors will receive a complimentary t-shirt. The Sponsorship deadline has been extended to Friday, September 12.
An additional way to support the event is by making a pledge. Any amount is appreciated! You are also cordially invited to join us at the jog-a-thon to cheer on the participants.

Scrip-The easiest fundraiser we have
What is Scrip? Great Lakes Scrip Center explains it as “fundraising while you shop”. We sell many of the same gift cards you would purchase at retail outlets. Great Lakes Scrip has over 500 of the country’s biggest brands: Safeway, Lucky’s , Starbucks, Peets, Whole Foods, Chevron, Shell, Amazon.com, Gap, Macy’s, Ulta, Under Armour, Pier One, J Crew and so much more. We also have local vendors such as Browns Valley Market, Vallergas, Monticello Deli and Andie’s Café. Check out our “in house” listing as well as go to glscrip.com and view everything available thru their retailer’s list.
How it works: We place our orders on Tuesday mornings so that you will receive your cards by the weekend, usually Thursday afternoon. We sell the cards at face value and purchase the cards at the rebate (discount) assigned by each vendor.
Benefits: At St. John’s we offer Scrip as a way to reduce your family’s annual tuition. Currently*, a commitment of $3,000.00 in Scrip purchases will give your family a $100.00 annual tuition discount. A commitment of $5,000.00 in Scrip purchases will give your family a $200.00 annual tuition discount. Our Scrip year is May 1-April 30th. Yes, Scrip is available during the summer.
Once all discounts are paid back to the Tuition Fund the remaining monies go to our A.P.T. (Association of Parents and Teachers). These monies are used to support our students in many activities such as our Art program, Physical Ed program, Spanish and Technology.
Who can participate? Everyone!! All families at St. John’s, friends, extended family are encouraged to purchase Scrip throughout the year. Come into the school office during normal school hours and see Cindy Zeller. Cash, Check and Visa/Mastercard accepted.
