A number of people left without claiming their gift certificates. If you are missing a gift certificate that you paid for, please contact Holley Ring or Natalie Carlson and let us know your name, your child’s name and class. We can deliver the gift certificates to their classroom or make other arrangements if you prefer.
If you purchased a digital image, Krissi Beeksma will be sending them to you electronically. She may need some help identifying your child since she doesn’t yet know everyone so she may need you to describe the photo a bit.

Dear QAE Families,
Friday's Launch party was a HUGE success! Not only was it a fun, festive evening full of laughter and warmth, it was also an extremely successful fundraiser. Together, we raised over $50 thousand for QAE! We should all be proud of the dedication shown by our community to this school and its students. Thank you all so much for every penny, for every minute you've given to the school and its students, and for trusting QAE with your children.
