Dream Basket Fundraiser


Continuing a Bowmore tradition, Bowmore classrooms are once again participating in the Dream Basket Fundraiser by collecting items to assemble in a basket. This year we’re trying something a little different. We are collecting donations and will divide them into the traditional Dream Baskets and into smaller Fun Boxes. We’re also trying out a few new themes. Baskets and boxes will be raffled off at the Junior Concert on June 3 and at the Bowmore Carnival on June 12. Funds raised will go to the new Kindergarten yard.

Each classroom has been assigned a theme and children are invited to contribute items by theme! Items can be big or small, but should be new. Alternatively if you wish to send cash, we can purchase the items for the baskets/boxes. Collection runs from May 13, 2015 to May 29, 2015.

The annual QSP magazine fundraiser will be held from Oct. 1-15 this year, and we look forward to another successful event! This is one of our biggest fundraisers, raising around $10,000 or more a year to pay for enrichment programs, field trip buses and more for our kids!

NEW THIS FALL – Customized photo products like photo books, calendars and cards are available too.  Now, you can order these types of products through our campaign and support our school at the same time. Plus dozens of new digital subscriptions are now available!

If you are anxious to order before our official campaign begins, you can support our school today by shopping online.  Just visit http://www.qsp.ca!  All early orders will count towards your child’s rewards.  Our new group online ID is 3720844.

Why not order a subscription for your child?  Kids love receiving mail and it’s proven that reading print benefits children far greater than reading material online. And magazines make great gifts and can be delivered anywhere in Canada.

Thank you in advance for your support.  We count on your participation!

Customer service is always available by calling QSP directly at 1-800-667-2536

Movember update

A message from Principal Sambrook:

Thank you to the Bowmore families that have contributed to Movember. Our Bowmore 7 Up Movember Team has reached new heights. As of this evening they have raised $1590.00 for cancer. The energy and excitement in the school is building up as last minute donations roll in. Tomorrow female staff members will join their Mo brothers by wearing their very own unique stache e.g., the Bruiser, the Hollywood, the Pencil and many more. Music will be played in the morning to celebrate the Movember movement and our school leaders that have contributed to this worthy cause. One of our very special Bowmore staff member that has fully embraced the movement will be crowned Mr. Movember 2012. The winner will be be shared with the school community on Monday.

Hope to see you at the Grade 4 Hurricane Sandy Hot Chocolate fundraising event tomorrow morning.

The spirit of giving continues at Bowmore!
