There are many ways you can contribute to our school’s success, and make a difference for our school and our students. In our school, this can include providing in-kind donations, contributing cash and lending expertise and technical knowledge. Connect with our principal on what may be appropriate.

Fundraisers & Donations

Christmas Star Letter and Fundraiser

Each year the Earl Grey School community offers some assistance for families in need at Christmas with our Earl Grey Christmas Stars. 

If your family is in need of assistance this Christmas we would like to include you in this program but we need your permission.  Along with your signed consent, we ask that you include the names and ages of all your children on the form, even if they do not attend Earl Grey School and we will create a star for each of them. 

Names of participating families are kept confidential with a numerical cross reference system in the office.

This year we have chosen to provide gift cards so families can purchase gifts for their children and some special food items for the season’s celebrations. 

Parents will be contacted before December 17 to pick up gift packages for their family. 

If you would like to have your family included in our Christmas Stars please indicate by completing the attached form, signing and returning it to the school by December 4, 2020

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Linda Dann

Thank you.
