SILVER CREEK REWARDS:

Shop Amazon and up to 10% of your purchase will go to SCMS.  Just click on the link on the left side of the HOME page.   

Are you part of a loyalty program?  If so, you can link your account to earn money for Silver Creek Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year. Here’s how:  

1.      HARRIS TEETER: Let the cashier know (during check-out) that you’d like to link Silver Creek Middle School’s account number (# 4424) to your Harris Teeter VIC card OR visit  www.harristeeter.com to link your VIC card online.  Once the account number is linked, every time you shop during the program, 5% of your Harris Teeter brand purchases will be contributed by Harris Teeter to our PTSA.  

2.      BOX TOPS:  The Box Tops program is going digital!  Full details are available on the Box Tops website at  www.boxtops4education.com/.  To earn money for Silver Creek, just download the Box Tops app, create an account and choose Silver Creek as your school.  Then, every time you shop, look for products with the Box Tops logo and scan your receipt.  Your Box Tops will be credited automatically to support SCMS!  Each Box Top is worth 10 cents - they add up quickly, so your participation makes a big difference for SCMS!  

During this transition period, you can still clip and submit regular box tops as well.  So if you have a stash of them in your drawer, don't throw them out!  Instead, send them into school as you normally do and they will be submitted by mail.  (For now, you can even "double dip" by scanning your receipt AND clipping the physical box tops!)
