SPECIAL THANKS TO:
—The numerous parents, under the leadership of Mara James, who helped with set-up and clean-up on the day of Fall Fest.
—The many former Courcelette students, who returned to the school to volunteer their time at Fall Fest.
—All the families of Courcelette Public School for the many contributions to Fall Fest and volunteer hours, both before and on the day of the event. Without our wonderful community of families at Courcelette Public School, this event would not be possible.
—Finally, a sincere thank you to Mr. Bradley. We appreciate your tireless effort and support.
Fundraising – QSP Magazine Sales
Courcelette will be participating in the popular QSP Fundraiser again this year November beginning November 12th. QSP is a very lucrative fundraising opportunity as 37% of net sales are returned to the school. Any subscriptions that are purchased are tacked onto existing subscriptions so there is no need to worry about duplication. Please help us to make the campaign a success – look for a handout in the coming weeks.
Health and Safety Committee – Halloween
Teal Pumpkin Project
The Teal Pumpkin Project is a project that aims to provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters and indicate that they are available through the display of a teal pumpkin in front of your home.
