THE ROYAL REMINDER

LEGION POSTER CONTEST Congratulations to Zjaya Doman whose entry

in the Legion Remembrance Day Poster Contest (Junior Category, Mid‐

South Vancouver Island Region) won first place! Maria Fernanda

Ramirez’s gorgeous poster placed second in the Senior Category.

CELEBRATION FOR 100’S DAY To celebrate the 100th day of school, our

Primary students worked hard to gather over 100 cans of food for the

local food banks. They were very excited that their efforts brought in 129

cans! Great work, everyone.

STEW DELIGHT This week, our kitchen will be featuring the lunch recipe

submitted by Alexander and Dane Munro, “Dad’s Famous Chicken Stew.”

Yummy!

HIGHLAND WINS Claire Nolli recently took to the stage at the BC Open

Highland Dance Competition where her performance earned her first

overall. Outstanding!

SCHOOL PLAY This year’s gripping student presentation of “The Cagebirds”

takes to the stage in the QMS Fine Arts Theatre April 4th‐6th. Be sure to

reserve your seats through Reception.

FACULTY BIO OF THE WEEK—Meet Andy Young

Dear QMS Parent(s)/Guardians(s),

On May 11 th , 2013, Queen Margaret’s School will be hosting one of our largest fundraising events of the year—the QMS

Spring Classic Barn Dance & Auction. All monies raised from this exciting night will go towards our newest building, the

Learning Centre. This new facility will house a Learning Commons, a Learning Resource Centre, and Intermediate and

Middle Years classrooms.

As a parent, you are a valued member of our community. We would like to extend the following opportunities for you to

join in the fun:

1) Purchase Tickets for the Event

We have a limited number of tickets available for this evening of country entertainment. We encourage you to

gather friends and purchase yours as soon as possible. Tickets are $25 each and are available through Leanne

Schultz, by filling in the attached form or emailing barndance@qms.bc.ca. Each ticket includes a delicious

country style buffet dinner and access to a 50/50 draw, a roulette wheel of prizes, auctions and the fabulous live

music of The Tumblin’ Dice! This event is for adults only.

2) Consider a donation to our silent or live auction.

If you own a vacation home, consider donating some time at it and help us put together some amazing travel

opportunities. In previous years, we have been able to offer vacation stays in Whistler, Mt. Washington, Mexico,

Poet’s Cove, and Parksville. If you own a business, this is a fantastic way to promote it to our guests through the

donation of an item or service!

3) Make a monetary donation to sponsor this event.

We can use your donation to purchase auction items and door prizes, or to offset the cost of staging the event.

Remember, all of the money we raise will be put towards our new Learning Centre. Fun sponsorship

opportunities such as “Paint a Pony for QMS” are up for grabs which can be turned into an engaging family

activity. Email Tracy Arden for details.

Thank you for all you do to support our school!

Sincerely,

QMS Spring Classic Barn Dance & Auction Committee
