We Need Your Help!

We have teams of parents on School Council organizing fabulous prizes …

We have teachers planning for activities for our Winter Wonderland event …

We have our student leadership team working on ads and decorations …

But what we need most of all are donations.

Winter Wonderland is our annual (and only) school-wide fundraiser and it is very important –it is really our primary source of funds beyond the school board which enable us to enrich our school with a wide range of enhancements.  Tablets in our primary classes, laptops in junior and intermediate classes, library reading programs, athletic team uniforms, indoor-recess activity bins, playground equipment maintenance—among others, are all supported by our previous fundraisers.

We are now on year two of a five-year-plan to acquire new and refresh existing technology within the school, provide individual classrooms with additional outdoor recess equipment, and plan for an outdoor learning area.  When you contribute to our fundraiser, you invest in our school for the benefit of your children … and all our students.

We gratefully thank all those who’ve made donations thus far, and thank those in advance who have yet to, but will.  Together, we can continue to make Bakersfield the great school that it is.

As a reminder, for every $10 donated 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 our school and submit all cash and/or cheques inside your child’s Winter Wonderland pledge envelope by Tuesday, February 2nd.  Additional pledge envelopes are available in the school office.  We thank you for your generous support of the school.
