A ‘Heart’y Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who brought in baked goods for the Valentine Bake Sale. There was a wonderful selection of sweet (and savoury) treats. Dozens of cupcakes and cookies and a variety of chocolatey, crispie and highly creative confections.  I was so impressed by the sheer number of items but also the attention to detail and imaginative flair with which each was made. Seriously.  Just look at them!

The kids lined up all afternoon with fistfuls and baggies of pocket change to trade for your snacks.  All of the proceeds from these sales will go towards our playground project.  Stay tuned for the final tally…

Many chose to exchange their coins img_4515for a guess at the number of cinnamon hearts filling the jar.  We’ll announce the lucky winner next week. These proceeds will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Thanks to Thea and the daycare staff for the extra hands and napkins, as well as Ms Hamilton and her helpful students. Thanks also to our friendly School Council parents who organized this fun event.

Don’t forget to pick up your containers on the table in the front foyer.

Valentine Bake Sale Tomorrow!

Get baking!

Join the School Council and help end the week on a sweet note. A little pre-Valentine’s Day celebration for our little ones tomorrow will raise money for our new playground.

Please bring your nut-free treats to the Drop-In Centre, on the main floor, in the morning. We’ll set up and start selling during the lunch hour and afternoon recess break. Be sure to send the kids with plenty of pocket change!  Any goodies that are left over will be sold after school too.

Don’t forget your loonies for guessing the candies in the jar!

Thank you!

Spread the word and spread the love.  The School Council is having a Valentine Bake Sale fundraiser on Friday February 10th.

img_4493We’ll need lots of nut-free goodies for this spread.  If you can spare the time, bake up a batch of cookies or mini cupcakes.  Maybe brownies are your specialty, or get creative with rice crispies and sprinkles.  It’s all good!  According to my kids, a drizzle of chocolate or a dusting of sugar = Valentine’s Day treat.

Anything made (or purchased!) with love will do!  Bring your goodies in the morning to the Drop-In Centre (across from room 2) and be sure to send the kids with lots of ‘dough’.

All proceeds from the bake sale are going towards the new playground. 

img_4495There will also be a fun contest – guess the number of candies in the jar for $1.  Proceeds for this will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
