Parents In Partnership

This active committee is composed of all parents and teachers of Beautiful Savior Lutheran School. Its purpose is to enhance the education of the students, to facilitate communication between school and home, and to provide opportunities for parental involvement in the life of the school. The goals of PIP are to promote fellowship, provide education for parents and help in fundraising for the school.

 

Christmas Dinner

November 25, 2017

 

Christmas Supper:

The Christmas Dinner is this Saturday at the Caboto Centre! You still have time to donate to the silent auction and all donations over $20 are eligible for a charitable tax receipt (forms are in an envelope attached to the side of the donations box in the hallway across from the Principal’s office).  Donations will be gratefully accepted until Thursday, November 23.

Speaking of extreme generosity, please remember to bring cash or cheque (for payment of auction prizes)  to the dinner on Saturday, as well as a huge appetite. Tis the season after all.

Thanks parents!  Let’s raise some serious money so our kids can benefit from the latest technology in their classrooms, as well as the many other areas your fundraising dollars will go towards!

Parents In Partnership have allocated suggested themes for the donations to each classroom. The themes chosen are as follows:

Preschool :    Board Games/Card Games (all ages)

Nursery :      Stuff for Mom or Dad Theme 

Kindergarten: Arts/Crafts/Science (for boys and girls)

Grade 1:      Star Wars , Princess or Favourite Animated Character Theme 

Grade 2:      Wine Raffle  

Grade 3/4:    Hockey or Winter Sports

Grade 5/6:    Christmas  (decorations, movies, advent items)

Grade 7/8:     Cooking or Housewares

Our request in no way obligates you to donate to the auctions and does not preclude you from donating items not aligning with your child’s classroom theme.  In doing this we hope to have a well-rounded auction that will be of interest to a variety of guests and budgets.

 

FUNDRAISING UPDATE FROM PARENTS IN PARTNERSIP

Start your Christmas Shopping now with FundScrip!  You can use the cards as gifts or use the cards to shop for gifts.  By purchasing gift cards through FundScrip you support the school.

Deadline for the paper order form is Friday, November 24. THIS FRIDAY!!!

Don’t forget you can set yourself up to order gift cards online. This means you can place your order when convenient for you and have the cards delivered right to your home. You can order weekly, monthly, whatever works for you.  For example, some people order their grocery gift cards each month and use the cards for grocery shopping.  Each time you order, you support BSLS!

MABEL’S LABELS fundraiser is still active. Using Mabel’s Labels will help prevent lost toques, mitts and snow pants (yes, snow pants) going into the lost and found bin at the school. This fundraiser campaign is ongoing and you can order anytime.

www.mabelslabels.com/support-a-fundraiser is where you go to place your order.

Thank you for your continued support.
