School Fundraiser

Dear Families,

School Council Members would like to thank the W.J. Watson School Community for providing feedback on the recent survey about fundraising preferences.

As a result of survey data, we have decided to focus the Spring Fundraiser on cookie dough and plant sales. Families have the option of selling Organic Edibles and/or Tasty Batters Frozen Cookie Dough.

Students in grade 1-7 attended a short assembly yesterday to kick-off our fundraiser with QSP.  As well, Information packages are came home yesterday with each student (grade Kindergarten to grade 7).  Grade 8 students will receive their packages on Friday, Feb 12, 2016.

This is a two week fundraiser.  Families are asked to return all orders on or before February 29th, 2016.

As with all fundraisers, participation is optional.  We are, however, grateful for all orders and small orders too – every little bit helps to bring extra learning materials and enhancements to our school environment.

As always, please call the school office with any questions, concerns or feedback.
