Magazine Campaign... The Countdown is ON!

Dear Students and Parents:

We are now one week into the magazine campaign!  With less than one week to go, here are some useful hints to help ensure your child submits his or her orders correctly!

1)  ORDER FORMS:  Form fields must be fully completed with the COMPLETE mailing address, magazine code AND name, and payment is recorded correctly.

2)  If a CHEQUE is collected for payment, please ensure it is made out to West Royalty School.  In the memo field, it is helpful to have your child's name recorded.

3)  DUE DATES:  The magazine campaign concludes on Monday, September 24.

4)  LATE SUBSCRIPTIONS: Orders collected after the end date will be collected ONLINE ONLY.

5)  EXPECTED DELIVERY:  Late November into December, depending on the magazine.   ONLINE orders are processed fastest!

Thank you to all students, parents, families, and friends who are working hard to help raise money for our school!

Your efforts are truly appreciated!
