School Cents at Arden Fair presented MLK with a $1,500 cash award and a school assembly during 2015-16 school year. A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped us achieve Third Place! With your help — students, family & friends, and teachers/staff — we will strive to get First or Second Place this year. The program runs August 1, 2016 to April 30, 2017.

What is School Cents? – Arden Fair Mall supports local schools with cash awards, and participating schools bring business to the mall. Shop/dine at Arden Fair Mall, and save your receipts to earn points. Every $ spent = 5 pts, and receipts from monthly featured stores earn 3X pts (every $ = 15 pts) if logged in the same month. Throughout the year, there will also be opportunities to earn bonus points for MLK. There are 20+ schools participating, and the cash award is determined by school ranking on May 1, 2017.

School Cents Incentive Program – This is MLK’s very own program designed to reward School Cents participants. It combines a receipt drive with rewarding participation in Arden Fair promos.

Receipts – Turn in original, cash register receipts under 90 days old (starting 8/1/16) to the MLK office. Please write the student’s full name and room# on the envelopes provided to get credit. Mrs. Jow will return the receipts once they have been logged. Alternatively, you can have Guest Services log in your receipts while you’re at the mall, but students won’t get credit this way.

Arden Fair promos – Some Kid’s Club events allow students to earn 1,000 bonus pts per child for attendance. In April, we will depend on parents/guardians to submit student report cards to earn up to 5,000 bonus pts per child. These and other promos will be announced on the monthly School Cents flyers that are sent home, signs posted around the school, classroom School Cents signs, and MLK PTA’s Facebook page. The monthly School Cents flyers will also be linked to this page.

Monthly Prizes – Students and teachers/staff who participate in School Cents will get their names entered into raffles. There are 2 monthly raffles: 1) a gift card (worth $10+) and 2) a classroom popcorn party. In addition, students will get monthly goodie bags for participating.
