October 3th 2017
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Our Lady of Fatima School will be holding our 14th Annual Halloween Dance-A-Thon on October 31st, 2017. This event is our only major School Council fundraiser for the year. Last year we raised almost $10,400, which we put toward learning commons renovations, Chromebooks charge carts and motivational speakers. The target this year is to raise $12,000 to continue to enrich our school environment for the students.
Top Prizes are:
JK/SK Gr.1: Bike plus Helmet
Gr. 2-5: Chrome Book
Gr. 6-8: UE BOOM2
New this year:
- Pledge money must be submitted through CASH ONLINE system
- Pledge forms still need to be submitted to the classroom teacher.
- Tax receipts will ONLY be issue through CASH ONLINE for pledges of $20 and over
Once again, we ask the students to collect money through pledges for the Dance-A-Thon. This is a fun and active way to get students involved in their school fundraiser. Attached is a pledge form for your child. We recommend they approach close friends and family for their pledges rather then going door to door. We completely discourage going door to door for safety reasons.
We are asking for a minimum of $25.00 to be raised by each child. For every $25 raised, your son/daughter will receive a ballot for our family price.Please submit ALL pledge forms to the classroom teacher by Monday October 30th, 2017 to be eligible for the top prizes. However, we are offering an “Early Bird Draw” for anyone who returns his or her pledge form by Tuesday October 24.
Any monetary or prize donation that you could offer would be greatly appreciated. We will accept anything that will help with prizes big or small.If you have any questions, please contact parent volunteer Nicole Carriere through the school.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
