Music Theatre Fundraiser – QSP

Today, students in Music Theatre received catalogues and info on how to register their account with QSP online, in order to increase their initiatives to reach more customers.  Please have a look through the catalogue or the website www.qsp.ca.  It is easiest to order through their website, however, if you wish to submit a hard copy order form, we ask that you pay through your Student Cash Online account.  Thanks for your continued support of this important fundraising program for MT which helps us provide a more enriched program for the students, especially regarding all of the professional visiting artists at the school.2017 – Magazine Parent Letter int
