Minutes & Highlights
The 2013-2014 V.K. Greer School Council has been very active running the daily Healthy Snack program, 7 meetings, the Goods Swap, Santa’s Bazaar, 9 Family FUN Nights, a Winter Fun Day, and a new event: the Spring Gala, which was very well received. We have participated in the school’s Welcome Back Corn Roast, JK Information Night, and Grade 8 Graduation.
A total of $5,682.46 was raised/received through Turkey Dinner Pies, Scrap Metal & E-Waste Donations to AOR, CCRP Magazine/Third Wave Gifts Sale, Santa’s Bazaar, the Spring Gala and HST rebates. Approximately $4,835.33 was spent on Musical Instrument Rentals, Boys’ & Girls’ Jerseys, Dodge Balls, and Student Field Trips. The estimated closing balance is $3,478.12 divided over the following Wish List Items: $116.50 Sporting Equipment/Jerseys, $200 Drama/Costume Costs, $307.05 Student Field Trips, $66.03 Graduation, $1,040.60 Musical Instrument Rentals, and $1,747.94 Primary Playground Improvements.
Plans for the Fall of 2014 include a new event to replace the former CCRP Magazine fundraiser. The first ever V.K. Fallapalooza is to be held on October 1st. It will be an evening of Activity, Information, Food & Fundraising all in one! Save the date and invite your family/friends/neighbours to check it out!
