Spring Fling Fundraiser Update

Dear Fern Parents and Community,

We are very proud to announce that the 2017 Spring Fling was a HUGE success.
Together we raised 20,000 dollars for the school!

So if you ever wondered if your basket item or small cash donation was worth it, we can tell you it definitely was. We took those contributions and location, bar and theme and turned them into a 20 thousand dollar event. Without the auction part of our party we would not have come close to raising this kind of money. So thank you for your donations and believing in this event.

Thank you to the many volunteers who helped make this event happen, our friends and family and to all our local businesses who supported us and to everyone who came out and danced, drank, shopped and looked fabulous!

We love our school and this amazing community and we couldn't be more proud to be part of it!

2017 Spring Fling Organizers,
Taya Kozak-Goebel and Veronique Claassen

Fern Fun Fair Organizers Need Your Gently Used BOOKS, TOYS, STUFFIES!

For any other information or if you'd like to volunteer on the day of the Fun Fair, please email donatetofern@gmail.com

Internationally renowned Dr. Shanker is coming to Fern - Tuesday May 30

We are excited to be bringing Dr. Shanker to Fern on Tuesday, May 30th at 6:30pm.

Dr. Shanker is an internationally renowned researcher, author and educator, from The MEHRIT Centre, Ltd. He will be speaking to parents and educators about self-regulation in children. Educators, parents, and human-behaviour-enthusiasts are ALL welcome! (There is a nominal $5 charge at the door).

Dr. Shanker teaches adults to see children through the lens of self-regulation rather than bad behaviour and thus how to better manage stress.

Fern's Fun Fair Is Coming Up...and we would like you to get involved!

Saturday, June, 10th from 10 am - 3 pm is Fern's annual Fun Fair.

The Fun Fair is an action-packed, super fun day for the kids to eat cotton candy, jump around on bouncy castles, play games, win prizes, and even have the chance to dunk the principal in the dunk tank. Parents can hang out with friends and neighbours, have peameal bacon sandwiches from Rowe Farms, and peruse our successful wine and basket silent auctions.

All of this is put on by Fern parents, and we could use your help.

In order to make the Fern Fun Fair a successful fundraiser, your assistance is needed in all areas. School Council is so thankful for the time you take and work you do to make the fun fair an amazing day for everyone.

To volunteer, please sign up here: Fern Fun Fair

If you have any questions, feel free to email the administrators at donatetofern@gmail.com. We will get back to you quickly.
