Hello everyone:

Welcome back from March Break and welcome Spring! 

Dear Parents:

Firstly, I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Clara Barroso, many of the students know me as Mrs. B. I’m a parent to one of the students here as well as lunch monitor to one of the kindergarten classes and most recently the chair for parent council.

This year, St. Michael School will be conducting a Vesey’s Flower Fundraiser from March 21st to April 20th. The money raised will be used for many projects and activities that occur at the school. Things such as improving the school gardens and the t-shirt initiative. These projects will depend on the success of this fundraiser.

We ask that you help your child with our campaign. Please sell to friends, family, neighbours and people at work. We would like each child ( and staff member ) to try and sell at least three items.

Please read the following:

Each child will receive the Vesey’s color brochure (

that describes each product, an order form ( and a payment collection envelope.

1)       Please refer to the example on the order form on how to fill it out.

2)       Collect money at the time of taking the order. Collect no sales tax.

3)       Please tally the total money columns and make sure the money collected adds up to the cost of the items sold.

4)       Never allow young children to solicit orders alone, they should always be in the company of a responsible adult.

5)       Additional order forms will be available at the office.

6)       A prize will be awarded to the top seller.

All orders and funds are to be submitted to the homeroom teacher by April 20th

Thank you for your support. We appreciate your help in making this fundraiser a success.

Sincerely yours, 

Clara Barroso
Parent Council Chair
