Valentine’s Dance-a-Thon – Donations Needed

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the School Council at Wilshire Elementary School, we would like to share some exciting news with you! We are planning our first ever Valentine’s Dance-A-Thon for the students on Thursday, February 14th.  Tell your kids to get ready to have an AWESOME day with BOUNCE Entertainment where they will have the chance to win fantastic prizes.

Our goal is to raise $4,000!! All funds raised will go towards purchasing new equipment and technology for our school. And did you know that the York Region District School Board will match our funds raised dollar for dollar!! To make this dance a success, we need prizes donated that can be used in the raffle. We are hoping to have some higher value prizes donated, such as the following:

–  iPad

–  Gaming Consoles: Xbox/PS4/Nintendo Switch

– Wireless charging stations

– All sporting goods paraphernalia (toques, tickets, swag)

– Event tickets

– Instax Polaroid Camera

– Razor Ripstik

– Amazon Echo


As a valuable Sponsor, you will be recognized on site the day of the event and on the school blog. To make a cash or prize donation, please contact

Tax receipts are also available for donations that meet the YRDSB Board policy requirements.

We need your support to make this event a success! Big or small – every donation counts!

We look forward to hearing from you and we thank you in advance for your most generous support.

Mr. C. Barlow, Principal

On behalf of School Council
