First off, we would like to thank you for being a part of the Holy Name community and the support, dedication, and generosity you have provided over the years.
Every year, the Harvest Moon Gala helps us bridge the gap between budget constraints and the need to provide a rich educational experience for our students in both French and English. Funds raised from the Gala have purchased the school computers, Chromebooks, Smart Boards, provided books and numeracy materials for the library and classrooms, contributed to our beautiful outdoor enrichment area, allowed for PhysEd Specialists, developed the Learning Commons space, and provide French Cultural and arts presentations for our children.
Although there are some activities that are unable to occur, (such speed skating and swimming lessons), we are still hopeful that we may be able to continue some programs and experiences in the classrooms and look into creative new ways to engage the kids and make learning much more exciting.
As we continue to navigate in the unknown in learning and learn how to school online when needed, Chromebooks are a very important resource and require regular replacement. Our Grade 6 students also deserve funds for their farewell, and our hard-working teachers should still be able to buy extra items for their classrooms.
This school year has been unprecedented. Since we were unable to host the Gala, we are asking for your help to continue providing our children programs that will enhance their school experience.
We are very grateful for any donation that you can give in lieu of the Gala and we completely understand if you are unable to donate this year. All donations are greatly appreciated. As we have done in previous years, we will continue to donate funds to our sister school to help support them.
Your generosity in the past has been amazing and we will continue to work hard to raise funds for the remainder of this school year so our children may receive the best education possible. Thank you very much for your time, support, and generosity. Together, our community will move forward from these challenging times, and grow stronger.
God Bless and stay safe.
