Purdys Fundraiser 2021

The GPA and Louis Riel School Council Purdy’s fundraiser has been very successful in the past and we’re doing it again! Purdys has perfect stocking stuffers and hostess gifts for the holiday season!



The funds earned from this fundraiser go to cover classroom supports and items that cannot be purchased using casino funds, such as GATE teacher professional development and wellness room supplies.

NOT A LOUIS RIEL PARENT? You can still order chocolate, even if you do not have a child attending Louis Riel School but you will need to pick up your order from Louis Riel School on December 3. Just list your child’s school next to your name, rather than a teacher and make sure to include your phone number and email address.

A HUGE thank-you to everyone who volunteered for our casino last week. Whether you attended the fundraiser or were available as backup in case we needed you, we APPRECIATE YOU. Despite the challenges of Covid and the weather forecast, you all showed up for our children. The casino was a great success, and we could not have done it without our wonderful volunteers — parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbours, and others in the community who wanted to help. These funds help support GATE by providing much needed materials, equipment, and experiences for our students. THANK-YOU!!
