We would like to thank the entire Middle School community for helping to make our QSP Magazine Fundraiser a success. The profits have assisted us in the past several years to fund SMARTBOARD technology for every classroom. Last year we were able to provide $4000 to every grade level for classroom expenses and enrichment activities. All Exploratory classes, specialists and the nurse also received funds to support their programs. The PTO also funded two guest speaker programs to assist with the State mandate to prevent bullying and build self esteem.
It is truly an “all school” event that has everyone at the school contributing to its success. Students, friends, family, teachers and parents all purchase the magazines. The administration, front office and janitors all assist with the preparation, daily work and clean up from a six day event. Over 50 parent volunteers help during the six days processing orders and providing gifts to the children for their orders. Patty Duhaime and Stephanie Budd, previous directors of the program, finished their long stint at the magazine drive last year but they both stopped by to ensure the turnover was smooth and to answer any questions. Special recognition needs to go to Camille Dunn and Kerri DiPietro for their leadership and extraordinary hard work and long works as the new Directors of this event.
Thank you all for your long hours and hard work for without you none of this would be possible.
