KING EDWARD DIRECT DONATIONS DRIVE:

Dear King Edward Parents/Guardians,

The King Edward School Council is a way for parents to actively participate in improving student achievement and well-being. In previous years, our School Council has raised funds through pizza lunches, art night, and other activities. These funds supplement the school’s budget with student enrichment activities, technology, library enhancements, education enrichment programs such as Scientists in the School, graduation activities, and activities that support a positive school climate and improve student achievement and well-being.
In this extraordinary year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the School Council is asking if you will donate directly. Donations of ANY amount are greatly appreciated and are eligible for income tax receipts. Our fundraising goal is $5,000. You can donate directly through TDSB School Cash Online (https://tdsb.schoolcashonline.com/Fee/Details/457/153/false/true?school=676&initiative=1).

We welcome all parents/guardians to participate in our King Edward School Council. The next meeting will be held April 6, 2021 at 6:30pm. You can help by attending the meeting and providing your thoughts on school issues and/or join one of committees such as the Caring and Safe School Committee, Social Justice Committee, Virtual Clubs Committee, Grade 8 Graduation Committee or Fundraising Committee.

LINK TO MAKE A DIRECT DONATION
School: King Edward Jr & Sr PS

There will be prizes for the top 2 classes that fundraise the most money and the top 2 classes that have the most participation.

When a donation is made at the link above, make sure to put the student’s name and classroom for each donation (for example: Sam Doe – 8FIA) in the box for “Message to School Board”. A tax receipt is immediately emailed to the donor.

Share the donation link with family and friends. The donation link is public so it can be shared beyond the school community and you can check out as a guest.
