Labeling your child’s things? Order here and Preschool receives 20%

Some families have asked if we could participate in fundraising with Mabel’s Labels, so here you go!

No pressure, but if you would like to buy name labels for your child’s clothing, shoes, snack bag, etc, Preschool will receive 20% of all orders.

Visit http://mabelslabels.com/support-a-fundraiser and under “Select your school/organization” choose “Canmore Preschool Society” from the alphabetical drop down menu.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
