In our History and Civics & Citizenship inquiries we have been investigating how people contribute to their communities. Students have also brainstormed ways they can give back to their community. As a culminating event of our inquiries, we are holding a ‘Teddy Time Fundraising Event’ to help raise money for the Kids’ Cancer Project. Feel free to check out the following link:
We are asking students to volunteer to do some extra jobs around the house, outside of their regular responsibilities. Some examples students have brainstormed include: wash the car, rake up the leaves, fold the clothes etc. We are hoping, with your support, students could earn a donation to help us purchase a number of special bears to give to sick kids in hospital through the Kids’ Cancer Project.
Details of our ‘Teddy Time Fundraising Event’:
Friday June 29 (week 9)
· Students earn their donation by volunteering for extra jobs at home
· Bring your favourite teddy/stuffed animal dressed in their best outfit for a parade and picnic (supply your own food) on the event day
· Any monetary donation big or small is welcome on the event day only
We would love to be able to purchase at least one bear per 3/4 class to donate to kids in hospital.
Thanks for your continued support
