Home and School Fundraiser

Dear parents,

Thanks to the continued generosity of the Smith family, we have once again partnered up with Smith’s Tree Farm for this year’s fundraiser. In addition to Trees we will also have Holiday wreaths available! The Gulf Shore Home and School will receive $5 from the sale of every wreath and $10 for every tree.

Holiday Wreaths $25 

14” handmade Balsam Fir, decorated with hand-picked pine cones, homemade bows and holly berries

Orders & payment for wreaths must be in by Thursday November 5th

Balsam Fir Trees $40 

Locally grown and sizes to fit everyone’s homes!

Orders & payment for trees must be in by Saturday, November 21st.


As with many things, COVID-19 is changing how we do our fundraiser this year. To ensure the safety of all, we are limiting our interactions and going online for our ordering and payments.

Step #1 Families are asked to keep track of their buyers and collect money.

Step #2 Purchase the wreaths & trees using the same method that you would to order your milk/pizza. www.gulfshorehotlunches.net

Step #3 Fill out your order via a google form (one for wreaths and a separate one for trees) with the information on who you sold to. You find the link on the school website.

Christmas Tree form:

For wreaths, we will be doing a drive-thru pick up for families who sold wreaths, to come to the school on Saturday November 21st between 9am and noon to pick up all the wreaths they sold and deliver to their buyers.

For Trees, once all sales are in, we will be sending home certificates with your child. You will then give those certificates to your buyers. These certificates will go home the week of November 23rd and can be redeemed from December 1st thru December 20th at one of two locations. Smith’s Christmas Tree Farm in Mayfield (u-pick or pre-cut) or at The Charlottetown Canadian Tire Tree lot location (pre-cut only).

If you have any questions or if you do not use the online hotlunches.net but would still like to participate in our fundraiser please email Erin macraeforrest@hotmail.com

Thank you for supporting Gulf Shore Home & School

And The Grand Total Is….

The view from the roof was pretty spectacular during recess today!

The grand total raised by the students of Gulf Shore for the Terry Fox Foundation this year is $5250.

That is so amazing. Thank you to everyone involved in helping to keep Terry’s dream alive.

Terry Fox Update

Our school fundraising Terry Fox total this year is $4683.80!!!! Although that is amazing we would love to be able to reach the $5000 mark. To try to do this, on Friday we are going to have a “hat day” with all proceeds going to Terry Fox.

As an added incentive, if we raise the $316.20 necessary to reach our goal, Mme Lavoie will do her car, recess and lunch duties from the ROOF!!!  Don’t worry there will still be lots of supervision on the ground too.

On Friday, wear a hat, bring a dollar, support Terry Fox, and send our principal to the roof!

“Anything is Possible if You Try” -Terry Fox

Tomorrow is our annual Terry Fox Day at Gulf Shore! Students will all participate in a walk/run before lunch, Home and School is BBQing hot dogs for students for lunch and there will be various Terry Fox activities during classes throughout the day!

All students will be entered in a draw for the two Terry Fox shirts shown in the picture!

If you haven’t had a chance to make an online donation there is still time or you can send in any pledges that were collected with your child tomorrow.

Window of Apology

These students are standing in front of their recreation of the Window of Apology.

The Window of Apology is installed in the Centre Block hallway of the Parliament of Canada. The window is an expression of Canada’s Apology for the culturally devastating residential school era.
