Order Scrip Now!

There are two more December order due dates before winter break through Great Lake Scrip. Help the MLWGS PTSA raise money doing your everyday and holiday shopping at no extra cost to you! Our last two order due dates before break are 12/7 and 12/14 for all of those last-minute shopping and dining needs. Restaurants and clothing stores tend to have big rebates. Cards will be delivered to you by the end of the week purchased. Go to shopwithscrip.com to shop. 

If you plan to pay by check, the check must be made out to MLWGS PTSA and received by the due date. You can also pay by linked bank account or credit card. Or shop for e-certificates and receive them instantly! Don't miss this opportunity to contribute to our school. We have already raised more than $600 since August 1 with just a small percentage of our families shopping. Questions? Contact Laura Dysart, or view our informational video

And Shop the Dragon's Lair

MLWGS face masks are now available in the Dragon's Lair. These are adjustable and washable. Please check the store often as we are getting in new and updated items often. Thank you!
