West Prep is very proud to support The North York Harvest Food Bank for our annual Holiday Fund Drive.

We will be having a Bake Sale on Friday, November 30, 2018 during the school day and during our Movie Night. All proceeds from the day will be donated to the North York Harvest Food Bank. Students will have the opportunity to buy nut free baked goods sold at a cost of $.50 cents - $2.00.

Your participation in supporting this worthy cause will help teach our children the valuable lessons of giving and sharing with others. To learn more about North York Harvest Food Bank please visit their website: www.northyorkharvest.com.

Our campaign to support the North York Harvest Food Bank cannot happen without your help. We look to our West Prep community to kindly donate some yummy nut-free baked goods and treats for Friday, November 30th.

Please be sure to obey all parking signs at all times!
