Your child will be coming home this week with a fundraising envelope for this year’s School Council Fundraising effort. Make no mistake –this school’s commitment to fundraising supports our students. Last year’s fundraising effort allowed us to purchase tech items including twenty new Chromebooks, ten new iPads, and a beginner’s robotics kit. Among other areas, School Council fundraising has also supported our Library’s Forest of Reading programs the past several years. Your contributions make a difference!
The week of February 8, 2016 students will participate in a variety of Winter Wonderland activities culminating in a Winter Wonderland Dance and celebration on Friday, February 12th, hosted by Bounce Entertainment. Our goal this year is for every student to raise a minimum of $10 in pledges. (Pledges may be collected from family members, extended family members or friends; no door-to-door solicitation is permitted.) For every $10 raised, students will be issued a ticket which they will place into a draw to win a prize. The more money the student raises, the more tickets he or she accumulates giving them more chances to win! In the interest of maximizing the number of winners, students are limited to winning only one prize each. And this year we have more prizes than ever before, including: an X-Box One System, an iPod Touch, Dr. Dre Beats Solo2 Headphones, Maple Leafs tickets, Toronto Raptors tickets, shopping centre gift cards, a sports extravaganza bundle, and weekend fun packages! The prizes this year are fantastic … and the money raised goes to the best cause of all, our students.
Please help the school and submit all cash and/or cheques inside your child’s Winter Wonderland pledge envelope by Tuesday, February 2nd. We thank you for your generous support of the school!
