Our Adopt a School fundraiser runs from September 16 to October 8. Our school page is at https://adoptaschool.indigo.ca/eng/schools/1987 So far we have raised funds for 7 new books in our library. Through Mr. McGaughey's blog posts, the favorite books survey, and an upcoming design your dream library challenge we will be eligible for several more.
There are several ways you can support this fundraiser.
- You can donate online and the Indigo adopt a school fund will add 50% matching funds.
- Heart Mr. McGaughey's story on the Bayview page, and encourage friends and family to do it as well. There are substantial cash prizes for the schools in each province with the most votes. (This requires a login so it's a bit of a hassle but worth it for the school). https://adoptaschool.indigo.ca/eng/stories/view/2904
- Share your own anecdote about the love of reading on the Bayview Adoptaschool page. Each story they approve earns the school a free book.
- Take some time as a family to complete my 2 question survey "What is your favorite book?" at http://bit.ly/bayviewfavs
- Purchase some used books at the Library Used Book Sale outside the Library during the school open house September 27, 2017.
