Message from TES Spring Fling committee


Class raffle basket from 4Myra 2015

Hello Parents,

This is a reminder that we are now collecting items for our raffle baskets for the Spring Fling. A list of classes with basket themes was sent home last week. 2016 raffle basket letter to parents – senior   Any item big or small  towards our baskets is greatly appreciated. Pick something fun, fabulous, or even a little crazy to throw in the raffle basket. Or just be a little mysterious! I bet your child has some great ideas.Donations will be accepted until May 16. That’s when our wonderful volunteers get to gather all the items and create a masterpiece for our Spring Fling raffle basket tables!

Although Canadian Tire is no longer running the Community Money Advantage Programme, if you have any Canadian Tire money hanging around your house, we could put it to great use to purchase supplies and prizes for our Spring Fling, to raise funds that go directly back into the school for your kids.
  We will be collecting money from now until Friday 6th May.  
Thanks for being such a valuable part of making our TES Spring Fling such a huge success each year,

2016 Spring Fling Committee
