Chocolate Sales Fundraiser

The Valley Manor School Community Council in cooperation with Valley Manor School and families will be holding its annual chocolate sale from Wednesday, April 17th to Friday, May 3rd.

The proceeds from our annual chocolate sale will go to supporting the School Community Council’s work in improving our Gr. 3-5 playground.  Past projects include the K-2 playground, the Gr. 6-8 Playground, the purchase of the new score clock for the gym, and the creation of classroom libraries in all grades.  We need your help to continue this good work that benefits so many in our school community. 

Our goal is for each family to sell one case of chocolates. A case of World’s Finest Chocolatier Selection chocolates contains 30 bars/boxes at $3.00 each:

1. Chocolate Covered Raisins x5

2. Carmel Bars x5

3. Crisp Bars x5

4. Milk Chocolate Bars x5

5. Carmel Whirls x5

6. Mint Meltaway x5

As this is one of our school community’s only major fundraiser of the year we really need your involvement. With your help we can make this a successful fundraising campaign, and continue the good work of improved playground and playfield facilities at VMS!

The youngest child in each family will bring home one case of chocolates on Wednesday, April 17th. Please notify the school office starting Monday, April 8th at vms@spiritsd.ca in the following situations before:

  • If your family cannot help out your School Community Council by selling one case of chocolates, notify us and we will not send chocolates home with your child. Some families prefer to simply make a donation to this fundraising project, and we will graciously accept those.
  • Some families want more than one case of chocolates to sell. Notify us if you want additional cases of chocolates.
  • Because of restrictions on returning unsold boxes to World’s Finest, only 350 boxes have been ordered.  We will distribute boxes to the youngest student in the family in Kindergarten to Gr. 7.  If there are still cases available, Gr. 8 students will have an opportunity to sell them.

We have a number of exciting incentive prizes to encourage your participation. Your family’s name will be entered into a draw for a variety of AWESOME prizes for each case of chocolates that you sell. The PRIZES will be unveiled at our kick-off assembly on April 17th.

Thank you for supporting your School Community Councils ongoing work to improving VMS playgrounds and playfields!
