We have planned our next fundraiser to be a bottle drive on January 18. Today our students were sent home with approximately 50 flyers each to place in the doors or mailboxes of your neighbourhood. Students in the same neighbourhood were put in groups and asked to talk and work together to get the flyers out in their area. We are asking that all student get this done before the Christmas break. Please make sure you keep track of which houses you gave a flyer to.
On January 18 we are looking for any parents with trucks to help us out in collecting bottles. We will be meeting at 9:30 AM on Saturday January 18 at the front of Vedder Middle School. We are hoping to send students from each neighbourhood out with a truck to collect bottles from the areas where they delivered flyers. We are looking to get 7 to 8 trucks. If you can only make it out for a morning or a few truck loads that is fine. Any help is welcome. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Kurtis R's mom, Jennifer, is helping us organize this drive and she will be coordinating the sorting in the front of the school. A recycling company will be picking up the cans and bottles directly from VMS at the end of the day. We will need students and some parents to help with the sorting for the day as well.
We hope to capitalize on the post New Year party bottles but there may be other groups doing the same thing, which is why we really want to get our flyers out now. Jen has told us that for a few hours of work the payoff can be really great. Feel free to let any friends or relatives know that we will take their bottles as well.
We are quite happy with how far we have come with our fundraising but we still have more work to do. I have attached the flyer below.
Students also received a consent form for our cross-country ski unit that begins the first week back to school. Please get this back to us by Friday as well. Students were given this form today and I have attached it below as well. Please note the departure times for each date. This information is also on our calendar.
