Fund raising Initiatives

In order to support our children, school and community this year (in addition to supporting school-wide learning like the drumming workshop, as well as classroom specific experiential learning), we will be fundraising with specific intent to support:

Student Literacy (with an emphasis on Inclusion & Diversity) including Guided Reading Circles Resources, Graphic Novel Sets, Class Book Sets, Levelled Books, and Teacher Resource Books

Spring Fundraising 2022

Easter Purdy’s Chocolates: place your personal orders for chocolates online though our account and a portion of the sales goes towards the school. Online ordering open March with order pick up at the school planned for early April.

Popcorn Sales: on upcoming Fridays, we, along with parent volunteers coordinate the making and distribution of popcorn. Sales will be advertised in advance and bags of popcorn sell for $1 / bag.

Freezie Fridays: when the weather starts to get nice, we replace popcorn with freezies. For $1, kids come away with 1/2 of a jumbo freezie at recess. A welcome treat on a Friday and a way for us to fundraise towards experiential learning opportunities.
