The Class of 2021 planning committee is evaluating options for fun and memorable, but safe, ways to celebrate promotion from Bowditch Middle School. Since we were not able to have our International Food Faire last Spring, we are pleased to share some exciting news about a new fundraising program for the Class of 2021 and we hope you will participate.

“Scrip” is the fundraising program that works while you shop – just purchase gift cards to use towards any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out. Participating businesses include Amazon, Target, Starbucks, Safeway, Best Buy, just to name a few. Gift cards never expire and make great gifts for the upcoming holidays! Keep an eye out for more information coming from Principal Morgan this week.

In the meantime, you can start shopping now by downloading the RaiseRight app or register at ShopWithScrip.com using our organization’s enrollment code: 499891AE75L37


Please see these documents: “Join Our Scrip Program” and “Family Ordering”. It is a simple process to set up your family account and start shopping!

We trust the Scrip program will be a simple and effective fundraising program for Bowditch and we thank you in advance for supporting the Class of 2021!


The program is also open to local businesses. If you know of any who may want to be added to the list of retailers, please contact Joyce Lew at srndpdy@yahoo.com.


Through the lens of celebration and equity, we are excited to be able to offer both in person recognition and a virtual ceremony for our 8th grade students this school year. The SMFCSD middle schools have agreed on the following promotion activities to celebrate our students:
