All funds raised during this fundraiser (as with all fundraisers we hold) will go back to the school to enhance and enrich student learning! From art supplies and phys. ed equipment to busses for field trips and math manipulatives, we use these funds to support the school with what they need to make our kids’ learning great!


 Fun Lunch – The first three “Fun Lunches” of the year have been organized and are open for ordering!!!  Thurs, Oct 20 (Subway), Nov 17 (Boston Pizza), and Dec 15 (Edo). Use the link below to go to the Healthy Hunger site to register for an account if you’re new, or sign into your old account and update it with your child’s current grade and teacher.

Fund a Friend – Every year we are asked by many people in our community how they can help support families in our school that may need some extra help. The QES School Council and

Parent Society began a fund last year where we will take e-transfers and use the money given

to support families at our school with things like Fun Lunches, school shirts, winter gear, grocery gift cards, and more. All funds donated are kept as a separate line item in our budget, which can be viewed at any time by anyone interested.

If you would like to support this initiative, please send your e-transfer to:

qeetreasurer@gmail.com

The QES Shirt Shop will be open in the coming week or two. Watch for info on the shop to buy your QES shits and sweatshirts – it will only be open for 2 weeks once it’s ready to go!

 

If you happen to be buying Mable’s Labels, please note that QES has a fundraising account

with them, so if you’re buying, be sure to support our fundraiser!

QES also has a fundraising account with Skip the Depot – you can have your bottles, cans and more pick up directly from your home and the proceeds will be paid to QES!

Your generosity and support are appreciated and make a difference!
