Grad Poinsettia & Wreath Fundraising

Support our grads – buy now! Orders due Thursday, Nov 14th

As is tradition, proceeds raised go towards making celebrations for this year’s Grad students affordable for all.

Why not ask your neighbour to support our grads with the purchase of a beautiful wreath or Poinsettia?

Looking for a host/hostess gift for that holiday party? How about a 6” Poinsettia! Maybe you would like to jazz up your business with the purchase of a Poinsettia or wreath!

The 6” and 10” Poinsettia dimensions refer to pot diameters and are therefore medium and “giant” sized plants, respectively. Please see the order form for items available.

Attached is the order form, please complete clearly (they are also available on the PAC website).

Please note:

1. Cash (placed in an envelope) or cheque (payable to Point Grey Secondary School) must be securely attached to the printed order form.

2. Return the above to the school office and drop in the Poinsettia Payment Box by Thursday 14th November.

3. Plants & wreaths will be available for pick up Friday, December 6 from 1:00 pm to 6:30 pm in the school cafeteria.

4. Your order form will be returned to you at pick up.

On behalf of the Grads of 2020,“YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! THANK YOU!!”

2019-20 Fundraising Appeal - in English

Dear PG Parent/Guardian,

Welcome to Point Grey Secondary! Whether this is your first or fifth year at Point Grey (or maybe more for some families) we hope you find your child’s time at Point Grey Secondary as rewarding as our children have. All parents/guardians are automatically members of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC). We host monthly meetings with speakers; the Grade 8 Parents dinner; Dumpling Night; and a New Years Lion Dance to name a few activities. We also put out the bi-weekly PG Newsletter to keep parents informed about what is happening at our school and in our community.

We’re not just a social/fundraising PAC, we monitor what is happening at the Vancouver School Board (VSB) and the Ministry of Education (MoE) that may impact our children’s education and try to keep our community informed and proactive.

Finally, we fundraise. We raise money to support our library, our teachers and our kid’s clubs & activities. As the school budget gets tighter and tighter, there is less to funding for the arts, music, sports, math challenges, as well as those important extra-curricular activities that enrich and challenge our kids. In the past we’ve supported projects ranging from the library to sports to life skills to internet safety. Our goal this autumn is to raise $10,000- $15,000 through this campaign. If each family were to give what they can afford, we would exceed this goal, please give generously.

Gift Card Order Form

Buy a gift card - support the PAC! 
Next deadline: Drop off in school office by 11/21 10am and you can pick them on on 11/29

Not just for gift giving!  Send a Subway, Tim Hortons, Starbucks or White Spot card to school with your child for lunch.  Do you shop at Choices? Safeway? Stong’s? If you purchase a gift card from us for your shopping, the PAC will get 4, 5 or even 7% of the value of your gift card. The PAC then puts the money back into projects and activities in the school that benefit our kids!

How does this magical fundraiser work? You’ll download an order form, choose what gift cards you’d like, tally it up and send the form with a cheque made out to Point Grey PAC into school with your child.  They drop it at the office, we order the gift cards and deliver them to you in about a week!

There are too many retailers to name, but some of those that are participating include London Drugs, Shell, Choices Market, Amazon.ca, Save-on-Foods, T&T Supermarkets, Tim Hortons, Starbucks and The Bay.

You’ll notice a percentage on the order sheet, that’s the percentage of the gift card that will go to the PAC – for example a $100 Choices gift card will raise 7% for the school or  $7 or a $50 gift card to Starbucks will raise $2.50 for the school. It doesn’t seem like much, but it adds up.  So why not pay for that coffee with a gift card purchased through the PAC.
