TOGETHER WE’RE BETTER (TWB)
TWB is a year round PTO fundraiser. Families order gift cards to stores and restaurants from TWB at face value. TWB buys them at a discounted price and the difference is the school’s profit.
For example, if you purchase a $10 St. Louis Bread Company card from TWB, the card is redeemable the full $10, and our school profits 90 cents.
CPOP PTO is excited to announce that the TWB (Together We’re Better SCRIP gift card) program will be available online this year! You will have the option to continue using the traditional paper order form or create an online account to shop hundreds of vendors for your TWB purchasing. This is one of PTO’s biggest fundraisers, and all you do is simply purchase gift cards to places you already frequent.
What’s in it for you?? Our amazing school benefits through the profits, and your darling children receive a designated dress-out day if you order $150 or more during a four-week period. In the past, TWB money has been used to purchase the bar-coding system in the library, purchase laptops for classrooms, air condition the school, and many other enhancements for our school.

You will have the option to pay by credit card (earn those points!), automatic checking account draft (Presto Pay), or check (made out to CPOP TWB and sent into the office). There are hundreds of retailers to choose from online. Many offer physical gift cards as well as ScripNow electronic gift cards that can be redeemed immediately if paying by credit card or Presto Pay. If paying by check, ScripNow will be available once the check is recorded in the office.
Physical gift card orders will be submitted approximately twice a month (9/5, 9/19, 10/3, 10/17, 10/31, 11/14, 12/5, 12/12, 1/9, 1/23, 2/6, 2/20, 3/5, 3/19, 4/2, 4/16, 4/30/ and 5/14) and distributed in the blue envelopes once they arrive.
TWB dress out days will be 9/25, 10/23, 11/20, 12/18, 1/29, 3/4, 3/25, 4/22, and 5/20. Dress code must still be followed on these days.
We are able to raise $10,000 – $12,000 each year with this program. The profit helps cover the cost of many services that PTO offers CPOP faculty and students. In the past, TWB money has been used to air-condition the school, purchase the library bar-coding system, purchase laptops for teachers to use in their classrooms and many other school enhancements.
