We have decided to add ONE MORE DAY!!!

Cash for raffle tickets will be accepted ONLY on Tuesday February 27th, 2024 between the hours of 12:00pm – 4:00pm in the front foyer. Students will be able to purchase their raffle tickets throughout the afternoon on Tuesday.

Nutrition For Learning Raffle ‘correction’ and more information!!

Scottie families!

We have had some concerns with School Cash Online brought to our attention. The concern is that Parents / Guardians were going into school cash online and purchasing raffle tickets for their child and then trying to go back in and purchase tickets again under the same account but the raffle fundraiser option disappeared.

Here is the solution:

When purchasing raffle tickets for your child, you need to have both children registered on school cash online. Once you purchase for your first child, it will disappear from their account and so you will need to go to your second child’s account and purchase tickets for them on their account.

Unfortunately, you are not able to purchase more then 60 tickets per child at one time. However, if you have already purchased tickets for your child and would like to purchase more, you can contact Ms. Goldrick at and request access again to purchase more tickets and she can re-open the raffle tickets on your child’s account.

We will also be opening one more day next week where students will be able to pay with cash again during the school day (more info on this to come)

Our sincerest apologies for any confusion this may have caused for anyone.

We have decided to share with families some of the prizes your children will be able to win! these include:

Backboard basketball net

Kitchener Ranger Tickets

Toronto FC Tickets

A weekend getaway to a cottage for your whole family


Have a wonderful weekend Scotties!!

Your Catholic School Council has been working tirelessly to put together a Family Dinner Night and activities. It was scheduled for Wednesday February 21st. Due to the low number of families signing up on School Cash we are postponing the event. Families that already ordered will be refunded in a timely manner.

Our Catholic School Council will meet again March 6th to discuss future events. We are considering a survey to ask you for input about events to bring the St. Margaret community together. Please stay tuned.

The students practicing to perform for families will present to the school community in the near future.
