Parent Council Calendar Lottery
The Major Ballachey Parent Council is planning on running a calendar lottery this spring or in the fall to raise money for technology within the school. The lottery works by students selling a month long calendar ($5-$10) that indicates which prizes will be drawn on a particular day. We are hoping to have enough prizes to have at least a draw each day. We are looking for donations of new products or gift certificates that could be part of the lottery. The more items that we can accumulate, the more draws we can have over the course of a month. If you can help by donating a prize or assist in tracking down donations, please contact Tracey Langley at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Brantford’s own Captain Kindness visited Major Ballachey on Friday April 19th. He challenged students to become the “kindest school in Brantford”.
Here’s Captain Kindness asking students “What is kindness?”
On Monday night representatives of Major Ballachey School accepted a $1000 grant from the Youth Advisory Council of The Brant Community Foundation towards our iPad Project. This brings the total raised so far from donations and students fundraising to approximately $10,000.
