Finally, thank you all for your enthusiasm regarding our Epiphany Blessing! The kids had a lot of positive feedback about our Mass on Friday and the meaning of the 20+C+M+B+20 that is found on doorways of dwellings that have been blessed. 

In Christ,
Mrs. Blahnik

Principal Letter for January 12th, 2020

Welcome to 2020!  Are you looking for a New Year’s resolution?  Try these:

  • Commit to buy scrip on a regular basis - $150 to $200 per week will help you meet your school scrip requirement.  It is easy to do just with groceries and gas.  You will help the school meet fundraising requirements and earn credits to help pay for your tuition.
  • Recruit family and friends to buy scrip and have it credited to your account.  They just need to complete the non-school family side of the scrip agreement and indicate your family on the school family name line   The scrip agreement can be found on the school website under Fundraising/Scrip/Forms.  https://s3.amazonaws.com/graceschools-6-1-18/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2019/08/09090058/St.-Bernard-SCRIP-Combined-agreement-2019-2020.pdf
  • Sign up for scrip online.  You will receive advanced notice of special rebates and new vendors.  Even if you don’t want to purchase online having an account allows you to see what you have purchased and the rebates you have earned.  Email scrip@stbernardcong.org with your preferred email and your desired username.
  • Volunteer for scrip Selling scrip at the parish office during the week or at church on weekends is a great way to support St. Bernard School and meet your volunteer hour requirement.  Volunteering is fun and you get to meet some wonderful people.  Just an hour per month would be an easy and rewarding contribution.  Contact Ann Selk, scrip coordinator at scrip@stbernardcong.org for more information.

 Any questions? Need help signing up online, accessing MyScripWallet or volunteering? Contact Ann Selk at scrip@stbernardcong.org or call the parish office at 468-4811

Wisconsin law established a tax deduction for private school tuition, and again, tuition tax credit information is available for the 2019 calendar year online via TADS.

The TADS Household Paid Tuition Tax Report provides a breakdown of payments made for the specified household’s tuition account during the tax year.

When you are gathering your information for 2019 tax preparation, go online to your TADS account and select Billing | Billing Account Number | Reports | Household Paid Tuition Tax Report | enter the year 2019 and submit. If you have questions or require assistance, please call TADS Parent Support at 800-477-8237.
