Fundraising

 

Fundraising:

One of Council’s main activities is fundraising to support meaningful resources for students that might not be covered through the school budget. This includes extra technology, funding for teachers to use in classrooms, extracurricular activities, such as Scientists in School, parent workshops and sports equipment, to name just a few. Based on needs identified, the Council will vote on how the funds will be budgeted and spent throughout the school year.

Council typically raises money through active and passive fundraising, which allows you to shop for products or services with a portion of proceeds coming back to the school.

Last year Council was able to support the following:

 

Leveled reading books for each classrooms

Teachers’ fund for each classroom

Colours of the World crayons and pencil crayons for each class

Scientists in School

Outdoor Kindergarten play bikes and Trikes

Art supplies for the new rotary class

Parent Workshops

Grade 5 Moving on Ceremony

 

 

 

Fundraising Activities:

 

Council organizes special events, lunch programs and partnerships with retailers where a portion of sales come back to the school. Here are a few planned so far for this school year.

Lunch Programs:

Sign-up for our Council-run pizza and hot dog lunches will be completed online using School Cash Online. Please sign up at https://tdsb.schoolcashonline.com/ to get started. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds once the orders have been submitted.

Coordination and distribution of these lunches is done by volunteers. Parents are welcome and needed to help out on designated lunch dates. Please see the Volunteer section on the next page.

Pizza Lunches: Back by popular demand, Council will be hosting Pizza Lunches (Cheese or Pepperoni, 1-2 slices, $2/slice) every other Friday starting October 14, 2022. Parents will receive an email from School Cash Online when items are available to purchase. Note: parents will need to make one bulk purchase for the school year at the time of purchase. If your student is absent on a pizza lunch day, there will be no refunds.

Hot Dog Lunches: Also back by popular demand, Council will be hosting 2 Hot Dog Lunch days: December 14, 2022 and May 17, 2023. Veggie dogs will also be available. The cost is $2/dog. Parents will receive an email from School Cash Online when items are available to purchase. Note: parents will need to make one bulk purchase for the school year at the time of purchase.

Retailer partnerships:

The Lunch Lady: A hot lunch program will be available to purchase for students every Tuesday and Thursday at SAB starting on Tuesday, October 4. $0.25/meal sold comes back to our school. Please see the attached flyer for menu options and details on how to order.

Mabel’s Labels: Visit campaigns.mabelslabels.com, click the "Support a Fundraiser" button at the top right of the website and select Sir Adam Beck. 20% of sales come back to our school.

One-time Contribution:

In response to parent interest, we are offering the option to forward a one-time fundraising contribution per family in lieu of participation in Council fundraisers. Any amount that is suitable for your family is appreciated. This option is available through School Cash Online. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this contribution will come back to the school and will benefit your child.

Please note that at this time we are unable to filter the families participating in the one-time contribution from the distribution of fundraising materials. These materials will still be sent home with students and shared via email, but can be discarded if you do not wish to participate.

Note: Additional fundraisers will be voted on by the new Council coming in this October. Don’t forget to fill out your self-nomination form and join us! Becoming a member of Council is a great way to stay connected to what is happening in the school and community.
