PURDY’S CHOCOLATE AND GIFT CARD FUNDRAISERS
Dear parents, our second fundraiser of the year kicks off today with a double header. Not only will we be offering Purdy’s Chocolates, but also a wide variety of Gift Cards (GCs) for purchase. Look for the Purdy’s brochure in your oldest child’s folder today along with a letter of introduction to the GC fundraiser and a GC order form. You may order your Purdy’s chocolates either online or by returning the order form along with payment to the school. GCs are only able to be ordered via returning the order form along with payment before the deadline date to the school.
Pick-up is scheduled for Dec 15 & 16; however, if we can get everyone’s order submitted and sorted early, we may be able to schedule an early pick-up date during the school week.
The fundraising committee would also like to thank you for your support of this year’s Fall Social. With your support and the help of all our volunteers, we saw our largest attendance in years. We hope you enjoyed yourselves and if you haven’t yet had a chance, to please complete the survey about the Fall Social by visiting https://survs.com/survey/lih5oq86jo. The survey is accessible until November 11.
Last month students were given a Holy Childhood donation box. Students are asked to have their donation box returned to the school no later than Thursday, November 15th.
We will be collecting hallowe’en candy again this year. The Grade 7 students will be putting together candy bags for Society of St. Vincent de Paul. There will be a box in the school hallway by the office for the candy donations. Thank you for your ongoing support and thoughtfulness. It is through your generosity that we are able to carry out God’s ministry to those who are less fortunate.
If you have any back packs (clean and gently used) or new that you are no longer using and would like to donate them, please drop them off at the school office, as the Street Ministry volunteers are asking for your help in providing back packs for the less fortunate. Your consideration is greatly appreciated.
