Peak Of The Market Fundraiser!

farm2school-logoNow that the temperature is starting to drop, it’s natural to start thinking about Thanksgiving, Halloween, and many other exciting events!

With Thanksgiving in mind, our first fundraiser, Peak of the Market’s Farm 2 School program, has officially launched! Half of all proceeds will go directly to Kidsplace. Time to stock up on carrots, onions, potatoes, cabbage, and parsnips. Isn’t it great to have a healthy fundraiser!

Orders must be in no later than September 25/26. Cash or cheques payable to Kidsplace Nursery School are accepted. Pick-up will take place October 7. Further details will be announced soon.

A friendly reminder to send a family picture to school on or before September 11/12. A 4×6 photo is requested. Please note it will be used for a craft so it’s important to provide a photo that you do not need returned in the same condition. See your note home for more details.

We are excited to announce that our first fundraiser will be Peak of the Market’s Farm 2 School program! Details will be announced soon.

Have a great weekend!

Yep, I think I’d look like that too, if I knew dozens of small children were about to descend on my nice, quiet farm!

It’s our final week of school (May 26 – 29), and the kids are pumped about heading out to Deer Meadows Farm (and riding the school bus, of course!) and their end-of-the-year celebration!
