Fundraisers & Donations

Donation Request: Splash Pants & Rubber Boots Needed for the School

The school is asking for specific donations for SPLASH PANTS and RUBBER BOOTS in sizes appropriate only to our age group of students. We intend to keep these at the school as emergency all-weather wear for our students – especially when we are going to the Coulee. Please clearly label your splash pants/rubber boots so they do not get mixed in with the Jacket Racket donations – Thank you.

Please Check Out ‘Oliver’s Labels’!

Oliver’s Labels sells products to label everything from clothes and shoes to books and pencils. This is an ongoing fundraising project for our School Council so purchasing labels will mean you are benefiting the school in two ways – ensuring your child’s belongings do not end up in our ‘lost and never found’ bucket and also raising funds for school programming.
