The BIGBOXFUNDRAISING campaign was a super success. Even though it was collectively many more (wo)man-hours spent than many other activities by the Council, it was satisfying to see that parents in the school favourably supported the campaign and made it a success. More than half of the families in the school participated, purchasing a grand total of 519 boxes to support the school. This fundraiser collectively raised $5,064.97 which also includes a family who donated $40 and decided to not take a box. The BigBoxFundraising campaign also supports kids and classes who sold a maximum number of boxes. Mrs. Fox added 5 hot lunch coupons and 2 Lancaster spirit wears into the draw. Students who received either a $25 Gift Card, a Lunch coupon for 5 hot lunches or Lancaster T-shirts are Chanelle R., Reid N., Addison S., Michael P.,
Lucas G., Ava J., Gates M., Julia V., Quinn W. Annalu S., Elisha X.,. The grand prize of a 16GB iPOD touch went to Mackenzie M. A pizza lunch was won by all the students in classes of Mrs. Sidlauskas and Mrs. Powers for selling maximum number of boxes.
A Chapters Community Night on Wednesday Dec 7th organized by Teachers, Student Council and Parents Council was a great success with a fabulous turn out!!. Our teachers are amazing and, as always, made the event especially exciting for our students. We raised $1312.51 to go towards books and materials for classroom libraries! Thank you to all who volunteered and attended.
Bake Sale Charity Donation - The kind grade 5 girls who organized the bake sale at our Chapters community night have chosen the local charity "Ryan's Cases for Smiles." This is a volunteer run program that sews special pillow cases (out of themed fabric) for children in hospital at KGH. Our $100 council donation will be in addition to the girl’s bake sale total of $160 for a grand total of $260! “Ryan’s Cases for Smiles,” organizer Liz Withers (who was invited to do a classroom visit and spoke at a recent assembly), was very happy to hear about the donation and plans to include the girls by inviting them to go shopping and help her select fabric. :-)
