year, we want to make our fundraising efforts for AHM Home and School easier by
using a service called FlipGive. FlipGive is an app that helps our school raise
money every time you shop with hundreds of popular brands like Amazon.ca,
Starbucks, Indigo, Sportchek, Esso, and many more! Remember to use FlipGive
before you shop online so we’ll earn cash back for the school.
now using our invite code QLB45Q in one of two ways:
the FlipGive app (https://www.flipgive.com/app?joincode=QLB45Q)
b) Join online at https://www.flipgive.com/teams/join?fundraiser_name=Aleisha%20Dawn&joincode=QLB45Q
Finally, all money
raised during the school year via the events organized by the AHM Home and
School Association goes directly back into the school. Last year, we purchased
12 ipads and two techtubs (special ipad storage cases). At our September
meeting, we approved the purchase of 12 more ipads and two techtubs. These
ipads are used in the classroom by the students for research projects, and to
help supplement learning in a variety of ways. In past years, we have purchased
SmartBoards, white boards, provided money to purchase books for classroom
libraries, and supplemented the school’s breakfast program. So please know that
your donations go to good use, and are greatly appreciated by the staff and
As always, thank
you so much for your continued support!
