Do you shop at Zehrs? Did you know that Zehrs` receiptslast year provided our school with over $500 worth of supplies? How does this happen? Gather up your Zehrsreceipts every time you receive them and send them intoschool with your child. Your child can then drop them off in the special box in the office where we collect them. Weorganize the receipts and total the amounts and then sendthem into the head office for Zehrs. We receive a percentage of money back to spend on sports equipment for our school based on how much we have submitted.Please consider becoming involved in this simple way tosupport Ryerson!Want to go even one step more in this direction? Consider collecting Zehrs tapes at your place of work or from your extended family. It is amazing what can happen when afew people work together to accomplish this collection andwith all of us working together great things can take placein this area!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCHOOL COUNCIL UPDATE
Thanks for all of the Ryerson families that supported our QSP fundraiser in October. Sales were approximately 3times higher than last year’s QSP campaign! We do nothave our final tallies in terms of how much School Councilwill receive from QSP, but based on last year’s numbers,we are well on our way to this year’s fundraising goals.
If you made a donation in September and indicated thatyou did not want to receive further fundraising information,you may have received QSP fundraising information. Weapologize for this, but did not have time to verify all of our class lists and notify teachers. Rest assured that we willhave your child’s planner labeled shortly to avoid futureconfusion!
