Dear Parents/Guardians, Staff and Students,

This year the Parent Council is teaming up with Purdys Chocolatier in hopes of raising $1000.00! All proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards the construction of an outdoor learning space at Divine Infant.

From now until November 20, 2022, you can order Purdys treats from our fundraiser by joining our campaign and browsing the selection of chocolates online.

Shop Christmas gifts for family, friends, neighbours AND yourself in one convenient place. Stock up on beautiful gift boxes, fun chocolate lollies, Sweet Georgia Browns and more. Satisfy those cravings, get all your gift-shopping done while supporting a great cause.

Ordering is as easy! Just click this link https://fundraising.purdys.com/join fill out your info, click “Join Campaign”, enter campaign number - 35449 and order to your heart’s content!

Once orders close, we’ll notify everyone when and where you can collect your treats.

Thank you EVERYONE for your support. Even if you can’t buy chocolates from us, it would mean the world if you could share this fundraiser link to everyone you know!

For those that wish to financially support construction of the learning space but choose not to purchase chocolate please do so through our dedicated link on School Cash Online.

You may have already had contact with your child’s teacher for this reporting period. The rest of the educators will be hosting interviews on the evening of Thursday, November 17th, 2022. A link to book an in-person meeting will be shared with you within the next 24 hours of this email. Alternatively, if an in-person meeting is not convenient for you at this time, you can request a phone interview. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions about your child’s report or share any concerns you may have.

Together we are partners in your child’s education and we are committed to educating your child through our strategic commitment of ‘Be Well’, ‘Be Community’ and ‘Be Innovative’.
