We are currently planning our school’s fundraiser, “1960’s Disco Dance-a-thon ”. Our special day provides our school with an opportunity to:
*celebrate “healthy and active living”
*foster school spirit 
*enjoy physical activity (creative movement and dance)
*raise funds for various school activities /initiatives

Student participation in the fitness component of this special day not only meets the expectations of the Ontario Curriculum, but it also provides our school with an opportunity to organize a school fundraising event. Your participation is encouraged since the money raised from the collection of pledges will go directly to support student success at STM. The money will be directed towards resources to promote Deep Learning, Outdoor Learning, the ARTS and Indigenous Education. On Wednesday, January 31, 2018, students will participate in the “Dance-a-thon”.

*STM students will bring home the pledge form. . 
*STM does not expect our students to go door-to-door asking for sponsors, but rather to request that relatives and family support this school event. 
*School Cash Online is the preferred method of payment. You can make donations in multiple amounts or a total pledge from money collected. For siblings, please make online donations for individual students to ensure each sibling receives tickets for the prize draws.
*Friends and family can donate online: The donation will be directed towards your child for prize tickets.
*Cash or cheques made payable to “St. Thomas More School” will also be accepted
*Students are requested to bring their pledge form and the amount collected in a baggie to their classroom teacher no later than Thursday, Jan. 25th 
*For School Cash Online donations, you DO NOT need to return a pledge form

As an incentive to students, there are AMAZING prizes available to be won in our school prize draws!
