Update: Thank you for your support! We raised $1,000 for our project.

The Student Council is selling Gros Morne Coffee (medium, medium-dark, dark, & medium decaf) beans for $20. Beans are available whole or ground. $5 from every sale goes back to our school. This fundraiser is in aid of a small outdoor basketball court for all our students.

If you would like to order please contact the school and send money in with your child. If your child would like to take part in the fundraiser they can pick up a form at the office. There is a prize for the top seller.

Orders are due on December 15 and the coffee will arrive before we close for Christmas break.
