We Need Your Help: Our Winter Wonderland Fundraiser!


The Bayview Glen P.S. School Council is excited to launch our annual fundraiser … Winter Wonderland!  Your child will be coming home this week with a fundraising envelope for this year’s School Council Fundraising effort.  Make no mistake –our school’s commitment to fundraising supports our students.  Last year’s fundraising effort allowed us to purchase and subsidize many things, including:

·    New Chromebooks ·    iPads ·    Indoor Recess Games
·    Outdoor Recess Kits ·    Community Events ·    And much more!

Your contributions make a genuine difference directly for our students!

This year we hope to continue to invest in our school, raising funds for additional technology items, new athletic team uniforms, an outdoor learning space, community events and other school enhancements.  The week of February 17th, 2020 students will participate in a variety of Winter Wonderland activities culminating in a Winter Wonderland Dance and celebration on Friday, February 21st, hosted by Bounce Entertainment.  Our goal this year is for every student to raise a minimum of $25 in donations.  (Donations may be collected from family members, extended family members or friends; no door-to-door solicitation is permitted.)  For every $10 donated, students will be issued a ticket which they will place into a draw to win a prize.  The more money the student raises, the more tickets he or she accumulates giving them more chances to win!  In the interest of maximizing the number of winners, students are limited to winning only one prize each.  And we have some amazing prizes, including:

·    Raptors Tickets ·    Oculus Go VR Goggles ·    A Galaxy Tablet
·    Drones ·    Smart Speakers ·    Lego Sets
·    Robotics Kits ·    Puzzles and Games ·    And Many Other Prizes!

All items were chosen based on focus groups of primary and junior students.  As well, aside from the larger prizes that students can try to win, all non-winning tickets will be entered into a consolation draw for even more prizes –including passes to numerous attractions such as climbing gyms, movie theatres, indoor playgrounds, bike parks, art galleries, museums and much, much more!  The prizes are fantastic … and the money raised goes to the best cause of all, our students.

Please help the school and submit all cash and/or cheques inside your child’s Winter Wonderland donation envelope by Friday, February 7th.  We thank you for your generous support of the school!
