2)      FlipGive Account

This year, we want to make our fundraising efforts for AHM Home and School easier by using a service called FlipGive. FlipGive is an app that helps our school raise money every time you shop with hundreds of popular brands like, Starbucks, Indigo, Sportchek, Esso, and many more! Remember to use FlipGive before you shop online so we’ll earn cash back for the school.


Join now using our invite code QLB45Q in one of two ways:

a)       Download the FlipGive app (

b)       Join online at


Finally, all money raised during the school year via the events organized by the AHM Home and School Association goes directly back into the school. Last year, we purchased 12 ipads and two techtubs (special ipad storage cases). At our September meeting, we approved the purchase of 12 more ipads and two techtubs. These ipads are used in the classroom by the students for research projects, and to help supplement learning in a variety of ways. In past years, we have purchased SmartBoards, white boards, provided money to purchase books for classroom libraries, and supplemented the school’s breakfast program. So please know that your donations go to good use, and are greatly appreciated by the staff and students!

As always, thank you so much for your continued support!

The AHM Home and School Association
