School Council Fundraising Updates

The School Council would like to thank all parents, families and staff for supporting our Winter Fundraising efforts. We have a few updates to share:

The Sam & Miko Toy Sale ended last weekend and we thank everyone for sending in their receipts.

We have extended our Little Caesar's fundraiser until November 21st, although the delivery date still remains the same at December 3rd. School Cash Online will be updated soon to reflect this change or feel free to drop off the hard copy order form that was sent home a few weeks ago.

Winter Raffle Basket tickets sales will continue until November 21st, with the draw taking place on November 22nd. Households will be contacted via phone to arrange pick-up as many of the baskets are quite large.

The second and last deadline to purchase gift cards on Fundscrip and have them delivered to the school free of shipping fees is December 3rd. Please indicate your name and your child's name in the checkout and we will notify you when the cards arrive at the school. Gift cards can be purchased throughout the year FYI but we arranged two dates to allow us to benefit from the free shipping option.

Thank you for your continued support!

Birthdays are very special days for your child.  For the safety of all staff and students at St. John Paul II, please do not send in food as a way to celebrate this special event.  Please read our Healthy School Policy for further clarification.

School Council Fundraising

posted Oct 19, 2018, 2:01 PM by Julie Kerr

This year the School Council will have five different fundraising options for families to consider participating in, including:

-    Sam and Miko Toy Sale (November);
-    Themed Raffle Baskets (November and June);
-    Little Caesar's frozen pizza kits (December and May);
-    FundScrip (ongoing throughout the year); and
-    Mabel's Labels (on-going throughout the year).

As always, there is no obligation to participate but having a greater variety of options benefits our children, because all money raised goes back to support the students and school. 

Pokemon cards-not at school

posted Oct 19, 2018, 1:34 PM by Julie Kerr

Parents please be advised that Pokemon cards will no longer be allowed at St. John Paul II.  Several peer conflicts are developing as a result of disputes over the cards and staff are losing valuable education time trying to sort out issues and refocus attention.  You can help support this effort by reminding your child to leave these cards at home.
