We have a number of current and ongoing fundraisers, both from the school and from our Parent Society.
Winter Plants and Chocolates
We have two exciting fundraisers beginning November 1 and running until November 16. Funds raised will be going towards enrichment learning experiences for the students such as residency programs, classroom library books and land-based learning resources.
The first is a Purdys Christmas Chocolate fundraiser. There are many options from gift boxes, to stocking stuffers, to classic favourites like Hedgehogs. You can purchase through our fundraiser page at https://fundraising.purdys.com/1367207-86364. Please feel free to share this link with family and friends to help us reach our $1000 fundraising goal. You can view all of the delicious options here.
The second fundraiser is a Winter Plants fundraiser through Growing Smiles. Available for purchase are a variety of beautiful plants such as poinsettia, wreaths, indoor planters and hanging greenery. Please follow our fundraising link (and share with friends!) to order: https://dfmschool.growingsmilesfundraising.com
Product pick up for both fundraisers will be at Dr. Freda Miller School on December 2, from 3:00pm-5:30pm. Chocolate orders that are not picked up on December 2 will be sent home with students on December 3.
We have included a package here that you can download that includes flyers and paper order forms for each fundraiser as well. If you would like to collect orders from family and friends you may find these helpful, however, you must place and pay for all orders though the web links above by November 16.
Please reach out to the Enrichment Society if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your continued support in creating a fabulous learning environment for the students at Dr. Freda Miller School!
Fall Fitness and Fundraising
We are partnering up with Commit Fitness on a unique fundraising opportunity. One of our Dr. Freda
Miller School parents is a trainer and running an outdoor bootcamp in the fall. For every DFM mom
that signs up 25% will be donated to the school. Please see the attached August 2021 Newsletter for a flyer with more information.
