Barriere Elementary School (BES) students, with teachers and parent representative Mrs. Clark, developed a “Me to We” fundraiser for the Variety Club Coin Drive. The fundraiser took a lot of effort, but the nine ‘Me to We student class representatives say they enjoyed working on the project on behalf of grade 2 student Callie Clark.
The fundraiser was a class competition named ‘Pumpkin Power Gotcha’; and was a competition that all BES classes took part in.
Classes earned one Pumpkin Power Gotcha for every toonie or $2 collected. The class with the most Pumpkin Power Gotchas earned a pizza party.
For every 25 Gotchas classes were able to earn a special privilege from their teacher, and all the Gotchas were displayed inside the classroom doors.
Various tasks like talking to the teachers, writing the PA announcement, making all the Gotchas, collecting the envelopes, putting up the Gotchas, and counting the money that was collected were shared by the Me To We student group.
The student group also met recently to be thanked by Mrs. Clark and her daughter Callie, who also presented all participants with a small gift of appreciation.
Principle Phil Janicki stated, “It is amazing what the kids have done, they raised $884.25 for the Variety Club. We thank them for their effort and all the parents who have given their support to the project.”
