BES School Council Donation Drive - Bucks for Books!
Banff Elementary School Council is continuing to cultivate the love of learning between home and school, and we are looking to you for assistance. School Council has launched a Donation Drive, November 5th to 30th to support this endeavour.  The purpose of this drive is to raise funds to purchase 250 home reading books - books you and your child can read together.
You can donate by cash or cheque (drop off at office) or by credit card through the Parent Portal.  Tax receipts will be issued for donations $50 and over.  For further information and ways to donate please click here.

Coffee/Tea/Hot Chocolate Fundraiser
Just in time for the holidays, students in Kindergarten, Grade 1, 2 and 3 are having a Coffee, Tea & Hot Chocolate fundraiser November 16th to 24th.  The Music, Arts, Creativity and Curriculum Enhancements that School Council supports (above and beyond what is covered by the government) are paid for by monies collected from various fundraisers throughout the year.  Coffee, Tea & Hot Chocolate make great gifts!!  See a student in Kindergarten, Grade 1, 2 or 3 to place an order.
