Dear St. Anne Families,
On behalf of our Social Justice club and Student Government, we are pleased to announce that we will be holding our annual Christmas sale on Tuesday, December 10! We will be using all proceeds from the sale to support our WE school global fundraising initiative this year. We will be raising funds for WE Villages, specifically focused on education in a Kenyan community. The students are so thrilled to be working to support the equal access to education that will be available because of fundraisers like ours.
Just like last year, we are looking for donations of gently used items for us to sell to our school community. Some of the popular items from last year included picture frames, games, movies, jewellery and houseware items. We would like to avoid selling clothing as all items would need to be washed prior to sale. All items will be priced at $1.00. We would like to have gift bags and wrapping available for students who are purchasing items as gifts, so we would appreciate donations of these as well. We will begin to accept donations immediately. Please send in any items you have to school with your child, and his/her teacher will ensure that it gets to us.
As like last year, we will be selling candy canes for 50 cents. All proceeds from the candy cane sales will go towards buying socks and underwear for children in Guatemala so that we may reach our goal.
Both of these initiatives are student generated and we are so proud that we have so many students in our community that want to help others.
Thank-you in advance for helping to support our students and their desire to make the world a better place for others!
