Dear Lochside families,

There is a lot going on right now!  Please read on for details:

Fresh to You Fundraiser

Get your BC fruit and veggies here!  Support our school’s Fresh To You Fundraiser by selling produce bundles to your family, friends and neighbours.  Order forms and payment need to be submitted by Thursday, October 20th with the bundles arriving in November. See the attached for more details and to order.

Thrifty Foods Smile Cards

The Smile Card program is back up and running!  Thrifty Foods donates an amount equal to 5% of the dollars you load on to your pre-assigned Smile Card to LEPAC, just for doing your regular shopping!  New families to the school will receive cards in the near future.  Old Lochside cards are still connected to our account, so please load them up and support this fundraising effort!

Country Grocer Save-A-Tape

Do you shop at Country Grocer, Royal Oak?  If you do then "Save-A-Tape for Lochside".  LEPAC is raising funds for Lochside using the Country Grocer Save-A-Tape program.  Friends and Families of the Lochside Community can help by simply saving their register bills (the tape) and bringing it to school.  There is a box set up in the main foyer to collect the tape.  LEPAC will get 2% of all the tape collected.  It's just that easy!
