We are selling Entertainment Books as our Fall Fundraiser, for the sixth consecutive year. Over the years, we have had great success raising funds to support costs associated with necessary technology and Artist in Residence programs, both of which are part of the fabric of our children’s learning environment.
We have been a top selling school every year of the past five years and this achievement has brought special rewards! This achievement has been reached with the average of 2 books sold per child.
How It Works:
Each student will be receiving books to bring home on September 4th. (These are sample books… if you wish to keep one you need to buy it). If every student can sell at least these 2 books, we will reach the same financial goal set last year – $15,000.
In Person Sales: Safe selling involves selling to family and friends. While door-to-door campaigns are discouraged for safety reasons, if you are friendly with your neighbours please do knock and ask your child to request they support the school (and why – see below).
Online Sales: Friends and family from across Canada can support your child as well, with a portion of proceeds returning to our school. The books your child receives will include an information sheet with details.
What to Say:
It’s easier to sell Entertainment Books when you understand two reasons why – why it benefits the school/your child and why it benefits the purchaser.
- Benefits to the Purchaser: The coupons save thousands of dollars in every day purchases throughout the year. Some coupons even are usable until December 2016, a 16 month timeline for use. There is a new and improved online app with significant benefits beyond the book, including not having to carry the book around to redeem coupons! See more here:
- Benefits to the School/Student: The school library is old and the format of the traditional library setting no longer suits the modern learning environment. With these funds we will be able to evolve the library into a Learning Commons, a flexible and adaptable space to suit unique learning programs and activities… and still host our books.
Use of Funds Raised & Why:
This year, our fundraising efforts are needed to support adaption of our library into a Learning Commons.
So, please support your child in selling as many books as you can. The Learning Commons benefits every child. The prizes are a fabulous bonus!
