Our School Council’s Annual Fundraiser Begins!

16 Jan

Your child will be coming home this week with a fundraising envelope for this year’s School Council Fundraising effort.  Make no mistake –our school’s commitment to fundraising supports our students.  Last year’s fundraising effort allowed us to purchase many things:

·    50 Chromebooks

·    12 iPads

·    Indoor/Outdoor Recess Kits

·    Forest of Reading Programs ·    Makerspace Resources

·    Modern Learning Accessories

Your contributions make a genuine difference directly for our students!

The week of February 12, 2018 students will participate in a variety of We Love Bakersfield activities culminating in a We Love Bakersfield Valentine’s Dance and celebration on Thursday, February 15th, hosted by Bounce Entertainment.  Our goal this year is for every student to raise a minimum of $10 in donations. (Donations may be collected from family members, extended family members or friends; no door-to-door solicitation is permitted.)  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 amazing prizes, including:

·    A Drone

·    A Hatchimal ·    A Lego Creative Pack
·    An Echo Smart Speaker ·    A Nintendo Switch

·    Many Other Prizes!

All items were chosen based on focus groups of primary, junior and intermediate students.  As well, aside from the larger prizes that students can try to win, all non-winning tickets will be entered into a consolation draw for even more prizes –including gift cards to Dave and Busters, movie passes, SkyZone jump vouchers and many, many more items!  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 We Love Bakersfield donation envelope by Monday, February 5th.  We thank you for your generous support of the school!
