Welcome back parents and guardians of Simon Fraser School Students!
Our school council is once again going to run a donation-style fundraiser. Rather then a cheque writing campaign as we have done before, we are introducing an E-transfer fundraiser!
In last year’s council meetings, the group decided that we would like to avoid product selling type fundraisers. By offering the donation/cash call style it is up to each family if they’d like to participate and how much they’d like to donate. If a $10 donation is sent in for each student, we have the potential to raise at least $6500!
In previous years we have used these council funds for food at the Peace Initiative Day, help to subsidize the grade 9 year end events, gifts for retiring teachers, events for staff appreciation days, guest speakers, and hosting volleyball and basketball tournaments. These are a few ways in which we can spend these dollars. Money that is made from casinos are subject to guidelines from the AGLC, but these dollars can be spent on suggestions made by parents, school staff and students and are then voted on at a monthly council meeting.
E-transfers can be sent to email@example.com
Cheques can still be submitted. They need to be made out to Simon Fraser Junior High Education Support Association.
Any donation that requires a tax receipt will need to go directly through the school office. The council is not a registered charity so are unable to issue receipts.
Please consider donating at least $10 per student to help us meet our goal. If this fundraiser is successful there will be no need for more fundraising this year.
As always, we appreciate the generous and enthusiastic involvement of our Simon Fraser adults. We couldn’t do it without you!
On behalf of the Simon Fraser School Council
