Grade 8 Button UP Fundraiser!

Grade 8’s Show Support – Button UP!

As the Grade 8’s start to transition to the new adventure of High School, they have been reflecting on all the community has done for them to get them to where they are now.  Through that reflection they realized that maybe they could give back to the community that has supported them. 

Something that all Grade 8’s can connect to is being sick.  Nobody wants to be sick, but if that was the case we are lucky to have many supports to get us through difficult times.  The Grade 8’s decided they could do a one-of-a-kind fundraiser to help raise awareness for the Ronald Macdonald House in Edmonton.  This facility provides temporary and affordable accommodation for families whose children are being treated in one of Edmonton’s medical facilities.  RMHCNA works to ease the financial and emotional burdens of the families, and keeping families close drives the House’s programming.  Find out more about the RMH - http://rmhcna.org/about-rmhcna/

 

The Grade 8’s have created a series of drawings that we are turning into buttons right here at Dr. A. E. Perry.  The buttons will be sold within our school and community to raise awareness for the Ronald Macdonald House in Edmonton.  The Grade 8’s hope they have created a button you may be proud to wear in support of the Ronald MacDonald House in Edmonton.  

 

If you would like to purchase a button, please fill in the order form below with the quantities and send the money to school by Tuesday, May 3.  Students recieved an order form as of Thursday, April 28.  

 

Each button is 1 inch in diameter and can be purchased for $2.00

See attachment for images of buttons that can be purchased.
