    This fundraiser promotes local food and healthy eating, and raises funds to support health promoting activities at our school.  Each farm box will include a brochure with educational tools and resources.  Additional resources to help with food preparation and storage, as well as recipes and “kids in the kitchen” ideas will be available at just in time for the Farm Box delivery. 



    Coles in New Minas has chosen our school as part of their Adopt A School campaign!

    Follow the link and follow the instructions below to support the campaign for Gaspereau Valley Elementary School.

    Why do we want your support?   We are an amazing elementary school nestled in the heart of wine country in the beautiful Gaspereau Valley and we wish to increase and update our school library reading choices.  By "adopting" our school daily on the site, you help us to hopefully become one of the top three schools in the province active on social media, leading to a large donation of funds for our school library.  Spread the word on Facebook, Twitter or by e-mail and encourage your friends and family to adopt and/or donate to Gaspereau Valley Elementary!  Only 17 days left.  Thank-you to all of you book and school lovers!


    Below is how the webpage will look. 


    From September 20th to October 10th, Indigo, Chapters and Coles employees, customers and their communities will raise money to help rejuvenate underfunded elementary-school libraries across Canada.



    Just click on the pink ADOPT A SCHOOL – type in Gaspereau Valley Elementary and start Adopting, Donating or Both!!

    Adopt & Don't Stop Giveaway

    The top 3 schools with the most adopts in each province will win books for their library!


    Every $12 buys a book for this school and counts as 10 adopts towards the Adopt & Don't Stop Giveaway.




    Please come out and support Gaspereau Valley Elementary at County Fair Mall on Sept 26 and Oct 3 (starting at 9:30am) and Oct 9 starting at 2pm.


    If anyone would like to volunteer to sit at a table for an hour or so, and/or bake something and donate it, you can send it with your child to school the Friday before. Contact Jan Loner via email or contact the school office at 542-6090.


    When you visit Cole’s, please pass along our appreciation for the support they are showing to GVES!



    Breakfast…the most important meal of the day! Many children in our school arrive at school hungry, for a variety of reasons. Maybe they slept in and didn’t have time to eat before catching their bus…maybe they had an early morning sporting event and are hungry again…or maybe there just wasn’t any breakfast food in the cupboard at home. Hungry minds aren’t able to concentrate, think or learn effectively.  Hence the term, “Food for Thought”.


    At Gaspereau School, we offer a free breakfast program every morning for any child, no questions asked. Each day we have parent and staff volunteers who feed up to fifty children a healthy and delicious breakfast. Where does the money come from to offer such a program, and to also provide lunches to those children who need them? The money comes from grants, corporate and private donations and fundraising.


    GVES, in conjunction with the New Minas Rotary, Wolfville Rotary and other local schools is again this year putting on a fundraiser whose purpose is to raise much needed money for breakfast and lunch programs. The name of the fundraiser is “Food for Thought”. It will be run in the same manner as last year, and will again raise much needed funds for our breakfast program. It was a terrific fundraiser last year, and we are excited to once again participate in it.


    Our Part:                   GVES must sell 1000 raffle tickets

    Cost:                           $2 per ticket, 3 tickets for $5

    Draw:                         October 14, 2015

    Sale dates:                  September 25 - October 12, 2015

    Prizes:                        1 of 5 $100.00 gift cards


    The ideal for our school would be for each child to sell 7 tickets, and we would reach our 1000 ticket commitment. We recognize that not all families will want to participate, but encourage as many as are able to do so. If you are able to sell more than 7 tickets…GREAT!!! The money goes to a GREAT cause that ALL our children benefit from.  We will again use the same format as the last few years.  We ask that you determine how many tickets you feel you can sell and send in the form below and the tickets will be sent home with your child.  Once they are sold please return completed tickets and money to the school with your child.  If you require more tickets just send a note to your child’s teacher with the # of tickets you would like to have.


    Please fill in the following form and return to your child’s teacher no later than SEPTEMBER 30TH.  If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Sewards at 542-6090.




    Please send home _______ tickets with my child ______________________________


    Child’s teacher _________________________________


    We would like all money returned along with ticket stubs, by OCTOBER 12th, 2015.
