FIRST ANNUAL WALK-A-THON – October 18th, 2018
The first annual Strawberry Vale School Walk-a-thon is coming soon! Pledge forms and envelopes are coming home with your students today. We are excited to start sharing with your family and friends the opportunity to help our school raise money for the many activities that support the classrooms as we go through the school year.
The Walk-a-thon will take place at 1:00 pm on October 18th and we invite you come out and walk, run, skip and hop around the route with your children or be a route marshal and cheer everyone on! Volunteer sign up sheets will be out soon, come see our sea of red as every student in the school will receive a special edition Strawberry Vale Wildcat logo t-shirt for their efforts!
If each student is able to raise $25 in pledges we would have $6,850 to invest in activities for everyone.
Every pledge helps, thank you for supporting your school!
THRIFTY FOODS SMILE CARDS
We are excited to announce we have been approved once again for the 2016-2017school year to take part in the Thrifty’s Smile Card fundraiser. For every purchase made with a Strawberry Vale PAC Smile Card, 5% comes back to the PAC (up to a maximum of $2,500). The proceeds from this fundraiser goes to the purchase of Apple iPads for the students to use. With the proceeds from the 2016-2017 school year, we were able to purchase 3 new mini iPads!
PARTICIPATING IS SIMPLE, AND THERE’S NO COST TO YOU.
- Pick up a Thrifty Foods Smile Card Fundraising Card from our Smile Card administrator.
- Bring the card with you to Thrifty Foods every time you go grocery shopping.
- Before you load your groceries at the till, ask the cashier to load any dollar amount on the card you like.
- *Important: Card load must take place before groceries are rung through. You can pay with cash, debit or credit card.
- Pay for your groceries with the Smile Card.
- When your card is running low, load it back up to continue supporting us.
THAT’S IT! 5% OF YOUR CARD LOAD WILL BE DONATED TO THE STRAWBERRY VALE PAC. It all adds up and all you have to do is carry the card with you! Contact Brenda Knox at email@example.com to pick up your card. Please load up your cards right away and get shopping! If you need extra cards to give to family and friends, please come to the school office.
BOTTLE DRIVE & TREE CHIPPING
Each January, a Bottle Drive and Tree Chipping event is held at the school between 11am and 2pm. Families and neighbours bring their bottles and undecorated Christmas trees to the school for recycling. Parent volunteers sort the bottles. Families dropping off their trees make a donation to have their trees chipped on-site. The money raised from this fundraiser is usually allocated to enhance nature/environmental education activities and outdoor beautification of the school such as the Nature Play Perimeter Pathway project.
MOTHER’S DAY FLOWER BASKETS
Each April, families are sent an order form to purchase hanging flower baskets and bedding flowers (for Mother’s Day and/or for spring planting). The campaign usually runs for two weeks. The week before Mother’s Day, the flowers are delivered to the school and families pick up their orders.
Strawberry Vale School has a Co-Op number that any family can use when purchasing gas at any Co-Op location in Victoria. The number is #23650.
