St Brigid Fun Fair! June 15!!

Our annual Fun Fair is fast approaching!  This year it will be held on FRIDAY, JUNE 15th.  We will have games, raffles, food, animals, inflatables and much more, but we need your help to make it a success!  Here are some ways you can help:

– VOLUNTEERS – We need lots!  In order for the night to run smoothly and safely, it takes 60+ generous volunteers to pitch in. Can you spare an hour or so on the day of, to help set up, run the Fair or clean up after all the fun?  If so, please email Shelley Dempsey at shellers_ca@yahoo.ca.  Got any special skills (face painting, balloon animal making, etc.)?  Please let us know!

 RAFFLE/SILENT AUCTION – Do you have any great prizes that you would like to donate, or connections you could leverage to extend the richness of our raffle and silent auction offerings?  Do you know of any businesses or individuals we should ask for donations?  If so, please email Cheryl Devine at cheryldevine2@gmail.com.

– NAVY AND WHITE SALE – Got any gently used school clothes that you can donate to our Navy and White sale?  Please drop freshly washed donations off in the office up to the date of the Fun Fair.  We will then sell all items for $2 each in the gym, with all proceeds going towards St. Brigid’s.  Need some new clothes for your munchkin?  Shop the Navy and White sale at the Fair!

– MASON JARS – This one is always a big hit with the kids!  If you have any gently loved treasures/trinkets lying around that you think someone would like, simple take a jar (clean, recycled jars are fine), fill it with trinkets and drop it off in the office or at the Fair.  Creativity is encouraged – superballs, figurines, dollhouse furniture, buttons, crayons, Lego, etc.  Jars will be sold for 2 tickets, with all proceeds going to the school.

– BAKE SALE – Are you a master baker, or do you have a fun, simple PEANUT-FREE recipe you could put together for the day of the Fair?  IF so, please email stbrigidcsac@gmail.com and we will put you in touch with Michelle Holder.

– IDEAS – If you have seen something that has really worked well at another Fun Fair you have been to, or if you have a great idea about something that would be really fun(and cheap), please contact Richard Payne, at rpayne@bellnet.ca.

St Brigid CSPC

April 19 CSPC meeting cancelled. Reschedule date – TBD

Hi St. Brigid Families,

The CSPC meeting scheduled for this evening has been postponed. We apologize for this late notice. We will advise of the new date as soon as it is set.

Pizza Lunch:

This week’s pizza lunch was the last one for this session. Ordering is NOW open for Session #3 – Please order now! Use our online ordering system Munch a Lunch to order pizza for your child or children. This system allows us to streamline the ordering process and go paperless. Our final session runs from April 24th to June 26th. Click Here to get started at https://munchalunch.com/schools/stbrigid/

The ordering window will close at 11:59pm on FRIDAY April 20th. We must provide numbers to Pizza Nova with advance notice, so we need to tally your orders. If you miss this deadline you will still be able to order for future dates.

Special Note – The usual Tuesday pizza for May 8th, has been MOVED to MAY 9th due to a Special Event held at Pizza Nova.

Fundraising with Flowers:

Spring is trying to take hold and soon the flowers will be blooming … or they COULD be!  If you have a garden to plant or pots you plan to fill with flowers when the weather gets warm, please consider buying them through the CSPC.  We will be taking orders from you from now until April 25th at which point we will place the complete order with Vesey’s, a flower/seed/summer bulb wholesaler. All orders and payments must be in by April 25th!

Here’s how it works:

  • Check out the catalog that was sent home or look at the Vesey’s website online. Please note that the catalog was sent home with the youngest or only child in grades JK through 6. We have some additional flyers in the office for those who have children in grades 7 or 8 and are not able to view the catalog online. There was a limited number supplied to us.
  • If you find something you like, submit your order and payment online byApril 25th through the MunchaLunch system.  Go to the ‘Fundraiser Open!’ tab. If you Order pizza, you already have an account. If not, you can set an account up.
  • If needed you can also send your order to us on paper, along with a cheque (preferred) or cash. Please include your email address.
  • We will submit the bulk order to Vesey’s and we will have a pick-up date for you when it arrives, approximately 2 weeks after we place the order.
  • Any profits we make will be used to support school activities.

How else can you support St. Brigid?

Share this catalog with family and friends. You can order for them or maybe even share a product with them.

There are also options online to make a donation if flowers aren’t your thing!
