Hello GK Families,

Today your child(ren) will be bringing home with them a QSP "Magazines and More" catalogue.  Although this is a fundraiser for the school, it is not our major fundraiser for the year.  Instead, we send home the catalogue, and advertise the link to order for those families that wish to participate by ordering or renewing magazine subscriptions for themselves or as gifts.  You may also share this link with your friends and family.  The site will be open until Dec. 31, 2017.

Website: www.QSP.ca
Group Online ID: 3717386

Please see the attached informational letter for more information.

Any funds raised will be used to support student learning.  Thank you in advance for those of you who decide to participate.  As always, there are many opportunities to contribute throughout the school year, we understand that  you may not be in the position to support all of them.
