January 2018 Update from the KEEPAC

CASINO – Thanks to all the volunteers!

Thank you to everyone who took time off their busy schedule and volunteered for the Casino December 17 and 18. Some families even did two or more shifts! Your time and effort is really appreciated.

Huge thanks to Holly M. who organized us, and our two fabulous casino advisors, Christy and Trish!

The money raised, upwards of $70,000, will pay for books, technology (smart boards, chrome books, etc), the art enrichment program (artist in residence, music and drama workshops), field trips and much more.


Winter Concert filming and raffle 

The Raffle at the Winter Concert raised 1000$! Congratulations to all the winners.

A big thank you to Joanne L. and Kelly O. for organizing and to the parents that helped with setting up, taking down and selling tickets.

We also want to thank all the local businesses and individuals that donated the fabulous prices:

Flirt cupcakes,

La Boule Bakery

Bonjour Bakery

Colour du Vino

Kelly Opper

David’s tea

Healing Waters Spa

Xtend Barre

We also hope everyone enjoyed the phone and iPad free experience.

Thank you to Keith Mayo who again donated his time and sound equipment for the concert. We also would like to thank Carey Opper and Joel Tolhurst for making the video of the concert that is available to the school families.

Ice Cream Fridays by No-Frills

Thank you to No-Frills for their continued support and donating ice creams for our Ice Cream Fridays!

Thanks you also to everyone who bought the ice cream passes! The money raised by this fund-raiser will be used towards the programs and events supported by KEEPAC such as fruit days, school dance, parent workshops, movie night etc. If you didn’t get a pass, students can still bring $1 to the school to purchase ice cream.

Thanks to Laurence S. for organizing this and all the volunteer ice-cream-sellers!


Fruit Basket Sponsored by No-Frills

Thank-you to No-Frills who is now donating all the fruit for the basket in the office! This is fruit that kids (or anyone else that wants some) can grab if they need a snack. Thank you to Laurence S. for picking up the fruit every week!
