Magazine subscription renewals have been pouring in to households all around as we are coming up on our annual Magazine Fundraising Campaign.  Last Fall MJ’s students, parents and community sold over $32,000 in magazine subscriptions – for the 4th year in a row (WOW!) – again raising $10,000 for school projects!

This year’s campaign is set to kick off with an assembly lead by Beth Snelgrove from QSP on Friday, October 4 at 2:30.  Magazine packages will be sent home with the kids at the end of the day.  The campaign will run for a two week period finishing on October 18. 

The sale will follow the same ‘pick a prize’ format as in the last couple of years.  The theme is Going Bananas with Monkey handouts (similar to the penguin idea last year). 

Also, as in years past we will have a couple mid promo events to generate enthusiasm and include all kids in the fun like crazy monkey hair and the craziest hair in the class wins.  The promotion will wrap up with the class ice cream party for the class with the greatest participation. 

This year is the end of our 2 year loyalty program with QSP so a % of sales bonus will be given back and should mean about a $1500 credit.

Tracey Wiegand Huth, with children in grade 6 and 4 will be taking over the coordinating of the Magazine sale.   She has a team assembled and will be ready for another great year of sales.

Thanks in advance for your support of the program.
