Grad 2021 Fundraising
Hello Byng families!
Every year, the Byng Parent Grad Committee undertakes to raise a significant amount of funding to support events and festivities to ensure a memorable Grade 12 graduation. While you might not have a child in Grade 12 we encourage you to support their efforts where you are able.
PURDY'S CHOCOLATE SALE - A very big THANK-YOU to everyone for ordering Purdys Chocolates for the holidays. Pick-up will be Sunday, December 13th. An email with more information will be sent out closer to the time.
GRAD FUNDRAISING APPEAL
As we enter the second wave of this global pandemic the parent grad committee acknowledges that this year festivities may not look the same as they have in the past or will likely look in the future. The class of 2021 will almost certainly have the most unusual grade 12 year in memory.
In typical years the grad dinner and dance is a ticketed event held at a downtown hotel, with ticket sales for the event covering a significant amount of the costs. This year we will need to do things a little differently.
A dedicated group of parents have already joined together to come up with creative solutions to help celebrate our student’s time at Lord Byng and allow for safe gathering while keeping some time-honoured and much loved traditions alive – but to do this we need your help.
We have set an ambitious goal to raise $50,000 to ensure all 271 members of the class of 2021 have a safe and memorable graduation. Please consider donating to honour your graduate and the entire Lord Byng Secondary class of 2021.
Making a gift online is a simple and easy way to contribute. For your convenience, donations can be made through School Cash Online. The attached 2021 Online Donation Guide outlines the process. Tax receipts will be issued automatically for all donations over $20.
We know that together we can make this year special for all 2021 graduates of Lord Byng Secondary.
