Welcome to Ballenas Secondary Music!

Thrifty Foods Smile Card Program



Dear Parents,

The Ballenas Music department has once again been approved for the Thrifty Foods Smile Card fundraising program (it runs until June 21st, 2020 when we will apply for the program to continue for another year). If you used this fundraiser last year and are familiar with how it works, your Smile Card from last year will now work again. You may begin using it to raise funds for your child as you did last year.

The Thrifty Foods Smile Card Fundraising Program is driven by parents’ shopping patterns and is one of the easiest programs to run. Each card has a number and security code on the back that is recorded for tracking purposes. These cards may be distributed to family and/or friends to use, and multiple cards can be assigned to your child’s fundraising account.

The Thrifty Foods head office will send a cheque to the school every 4 to 6 weeks for 5% of all monies loaded onto individual cards that have been allotted to our program. Once that money has been mailed to the school, each student’s account will be credited with 5% of the amount loaded on their Smile Card(s). These funds can be used for your child’s Music department travel costs for regional and international music festivals or music field trip activities.

Here are all of the details about getting started with this great fundraiser:
