Please see the following email, shared earlier this evening:
Just a few reminders about upcoming events and activities taking place at school. First, on Thursday, September 26th, students will be taking part in the annual Terry Fox Walk. This year we are taking part in the Terry Fox Challenge #1000challengesforTerry. Our fundraising goal is $4000. If we reach our goal we will celebrate with a Dance Party in the gym! Students brought home information about the above in the student agendas earlier today. However, you can also donate (if you choose to do so) as follows:
Click this link: http://www.terryfox.ca/ChristinaGordonPublicSchool to visit our school’s fundraising page. It’s fast, easy, and donors get a receipt immediately by email. Alternately, go to terryfox.org and follow the instructions:
Donations can also be made by submitting cash/cheques and entering the donor information on the pledge sheet sent home earlier today. Donations of $20 or more listed on the Terry Fox pledge sheet (with full donor name and address) are automatically receipted. Cheques can be made payable to "The Terry Fox Foundation." Please return any pledge forms and all funds by Wednesday, September 25th. Students may also choose to also set up their own fundraising page by clicking the “Donate to a Student” button. Their page will connect automatically to our school’s fundraising page and they’ll receive a link to email friends and family to help them reach their fundraising goal. As always, students and families are under no obligation to fundraise. All students will learn about and participate in the Terry Fox Walk regardless.
Second, the Fundraising Association has shared the following information in regards to the Hot Lunch Program. All orders must be made online to ensure accuracy and to make the process as easy for everyone as possible. The first hot lunch date will be October 8th. Ordering will be open from September 16th to September 27th. Any unpaid orders will be cancelled after this deadline. The Hot Lunch Program is only available for students through Grs. 1-6. They are only able to accept hot lunch order payments through PayPal (www.paypal.com). No cheque or cash payments will be accepted at any time. You may pay with a credit card as a PayPal guest (Visa, Mastercard, or Amex) or set up your own PayPal account. Please Note: should you experience any issues with your PayPal account, you must contact PayPal directly to solve the issue.
