We will be holding a
School Fundraiser on Friday, June 15, 2018.
The Walkathon will take place on the Gravel Field, and on the outside
school sidewalks. This is a special
event when the whole school gets together, it’s a lot of fun, and helps raise
money for the school.
The money raised will go
towards facilitating programs in our school such as Technology and Physical
Education. In addition, funds will be
used to assist in special class projects and events.
All students that
participate will be eligible for random door prizes. Students that collect donations of $100.00 or
more will have their name placed in draws for bigger prizes. Also, if all the students raise a total of $5,000.00
or more, they will have an extra long recess during school, at a date to be
The classes will begin
their walk from 1:30 a.m. Students can
walk, run or skip and try to see how many time they can go around the course in
one hour. Parents/ guardians are invited
to join us.
Pledge forms will be sent
home today with this letter, on form per child.
We encourage students to only collect pledges from people they know
(i.e. parents, friends, relatives and neighbours they know). Wed do not want children going door-to-door
or approaching strangers. We request
that they NOT ask staff members or other students in the school. When collecting monies, students are
encouraged to go with an adult, explain politely about the Walkathon, and
understand that some people may not want or be able to donate.
When students feel that
they have collected what they can please hand the money into their classroom
teacher on or before Tuesday, June 12, 2017.
Please also consider
donating prizes to the school for this event.
As an incentive for our students we need prizes to hand out and these
come from the community (parents, staff, friends of the school). Please bring your gift to the office and we
will display it for our students to see.
The Grenfell Staff and
Students thank you for your continued support!
