Parent Society

Here are some of the great fundraisers we will be doing this year! Remember every dollar goes directly to support the students of DMC:

  • ADmazing coupon book - September 5 to 16, 2019, Book pickup at the BBQ September 19
  • Purdy’s Chocolates – November 2019
  • Online Silent Auction- March 2020
  • Casino scheduled for Q3 2020

Student Initiatives

A good example of these types of fundraising initiatives has been: the Terry Fox activities; Booster Juice; Delay the Day; Hat Day; and PJ Day, with proceeds going to Terry Fox. These types of opportunities come from the students and are designed to help them understand the need for empathy in the world.

Please note that we recognize that families cannot contribute to every fundraiser that comes home, however we do truly appreciate the ones you do choose to be part of.
