FUNdraiser Has Launched!

It is official…we are in FUNdraising mode as a school. You would have likely heard your children tell you how excited they are to earn tickets for great prizes and the opportunity to Pie the Principal in the Face! It is all in good fun that supports the learning and educational experience of our students. We value your partnership and support, and look forward to you joining us for the fun as well. More details to come when we have our Celebration Assembly, but we have many pledges to go first. Pledges can be made when students bring in cash or you use Cash-Online. All Donations $25 or over eligible for a tax receipt. Our Dance-A-Thon will take place on February 21st.

Volunteers Wanted!

Parents regularly ask us if there are any opportunities to help out and volunteer at the school. Currently there are 3 opportunities.

  • Strong Start Reading Support. This requires a few hours a week, but will make an incredible difference in the lives of the kids you interact with. Essentially, it is a reading intervention which helps students who are struggling to master their reading skills. If you are interested in helping, please contact Sharon Farrow who organizes the program at our school.

 

  • Smoothie/Milkshake Day! In early February we are doing a Smoothie/Milkshake day as voted on by kids as their Spirit Meter Reward for passing the halfway point. If you would like to participate as a volunteer to help blend and mix some delicious drinks for our students, please reach out to Mr. Hunt.

 

  • Shrove Tuesday Pancake Breakfast. This is about a month away, but if you feel like being a part of making our community breakfast happen, we would love you to be a part of the special day. Again, please reach out to Mr. Hunt to express your interest in participating in this event.
