Shop with Scrip

Welcome to Scrip @ The Manning School PTA!

Earn money for Manning PTA while doing the shopping that you already do! There are 2 steps to participate in the Scrip program:  Enroll and Presto Pay

Enrolling signs you up with a user name and password, connects your orders with our school and your student, as well as a security verification.

PrestoPay is the way that you pay for your orders.  We will only be accepting orders via PrestoPay, so this is an important step.  Presto Pay is SCRIPs version of PayPal.  It has an A++ rating with the BBB and has been working efficiently and safely for over 20 years to provide and protect their consumers.  It uses an ACH process that draws directly from your checking or savings account.  They do not accept credit cards, as the fees associated with credit cards detract from our school’s profits.

Once you have enrolled and created your PrestoPay account, you will be ready to shop! For details on Enrolling and PrestoPay, visit our Shop with Scrip site.


Manning PTA endorses 3A/3B

At our meeting on September 13th, Manning PTA members voted to officially support Yes on 3A and 3B! This the the Jeffco Mill & Bond which will be on the November 2016 ballot. From Support Jeffco Schools:

  • Jeffco Schools has a Tradition of Excellence with a long history of strong schools and great teachers. Yes on 3A and 3B will ensure Jeffco students and teachers are able to learn and work in a safe environment that prepares all students in the district for college and the work force.
  • All funds generated by Yes on 3A and 3B! will apply to neighborhood, option and public charter schools and will be overseen by citizens’ financial oversight and capital asset committees to ensure transparency and accountability.
  • These measures provide vital funding to upgrade security and technology, keep quality teachers in the classroom, and ensure students have the necessary skills for college and the workforce – all for approximately $4.12 per month for every $100,000 in home value.
