October Update

Alternative Fundraising Options 2017-2018
Sundance School has been a ‘fundraising free’ school for over 13 years. Please would you check your child’s backpack for a three page letter providing information on making a donation to the School.

The Corporate and Personal Donation Form was sent home. Please complete and return to Sundance School with your cheque made payable to The Calgary Board of Education (you may post-date your cheque to November 30, 2017).

Donations $25 and over receive a tax receipt. Donations received by November 30, 2017, will receive a tax receipt for 2017. Donations received after November 30, 2017, may have a tax receipt issued for 2018.

If you return your completed donation form by Wednesday, November 22, 2017, you will be eligible for a PRIZE ($50 gift certificate of your choice and front row seats and a parking pass to the Christmas Concert). The draw for the PRIZE will be made during the School Council meeting on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, in the school library. We hope to see you there!

Please note if you are the winner of this prize you will not be able to receive a tax benefit according to Revenue Canada rules.

School Council warmly invites you to our meetings, the next one being Thursday, October 19th, at 7:00pm in the school library. There are a number of great events to discuss and plan for the upcoming school year such as the very popular Halloween Dance, and we want, need, and appreciate your input! This year we have our meetings rotating between different days so that more parents may attend. All meetings take place in the Sundance School Library. Please take a look at our meeting dates and see if you can join us and help us continue to make Sundance School a great school to attend!! If you have any questions, please contact us: Michelle Stang, Sundance School Council Chair, or Alana Barron, SPA Chair.
