Dear St. Luke families:

This year’s school fundraiser was a huge success! We raised $9912.50!

There are several school-wide prizes the students earned:

Amount Raised Prize Date
$3000 extra recess date TBD as we will wait for warmer weather
$5000 gum day Thursday, February 13th
$6000 games day/listen to music HALF day on Friday, February 14th – (am or pm to be decided by individual teachers)
$8000 no homework THIS WEEKEND! (Feb. 8/9)
$10,000 (we were SO close!) school wide surprise treat Thursday, February 20th

We will be ordering the gaga ball pit and spending the remainder of funds on resources for classrooms, library and physical activity.

There are four classes that raised the most funds and will receive a prize: Mrs. Mantle’s/Ms. Gould’s JK/Ks, Mme DiMeo’s Grade 1s, Mr. Goetz’s Grade 4/5s and Mr. Ennis’s Grade 8s.

Congratulations to all of the students who won one of the many prizes donated by families, community members and St. Luke staff. Congratulations, also, to top pledge-earners who won a Conestoga Mall gift card: Kensington C., Mackenzie H., Carson H. and Maguire K.

Special thanks to everyone who donated prizes or funds, to our Grade 8 leaders who helped with the fundraiser and dance-a-thon, and to our wonderful parent volunteers – especially the chair of the committee, Mrs. Melinda Hannusch.

If you or someone you know would like a tax receipt (for donations over $20) but have not sent in the pink donation form, please send a request to stlukewaterloovolunteer@gmail.com. The deadline for requests is this Friday, February 7th.
