Bakersfield Basket Bonanza!

28 Feb


Our School Council is excited to announce that in the coming months Bakersfield P.S. will be launching its annual fundraiser.  This year it will be a Basket Bonanza!

Each class has come up with an incredible ‘theme’ for a class basket.  Your child is encouraged to bring in one new item to contribute to his or her class basket related to the theme.  Letters will be coming home this week indicating your child’s class theme.  Items related to the class theme should be brought in no later than March 24th, 2017.

Once all items are collected, baskets will be wrapped and displayed for students to see. Families will have a chance to view and vote for their favourite baskets online, too!

During the weeks of April 3rd to April 21st, 2017 we will officially launch our fundraiser, and families will be encouraged to make donations to the school which will give your children an opportunity to win one of the beautiful baskets!  More information about this will follow at the beginning of April once all the baskets are ready.  Stay tuned!

Our history of fundraising has contributed substantially to the school in so many ways and is responsible for a good deal of the technology and enhancements our students make regular use of each and every day.  Thank you for contributing to your child’s class basket and for your future support of the fundraiser.
