Bonus Bucks Program

Bonus Bucks represents a variety of programs and benefits each division to fund professional development.

Bonus Bucks is an easy way for your family to raise money for USN while doing your everyday shopping with eScrip, Kroger, Publix, Box Tops, Amazon Smile and our USN Community Nights Out.  

It supports teachers attending conferences and workshops or participating in other profesional development opportunities. This fundraiser directly and positively impacts your student’s experience in the classroom. Additionally, Bonus Bucks can be used to purchase something innovative for all students, which fall outside of the typical budget items. For example, USN would love to have a set of large foam construction blocks for Lower School and AFTER-SCHOOL use. They are amazing but also expensive, the perfect Bonus Bucks purchase!
