Next week we’ll be having our favourite annual event at the school – The Holiday Luncheon! On Thursday December 21st, the kids will all celebrate the season with a festive lunch and fancy dessert.
This year we are trying to be a bit more environmentally conscious and are asking that children bring their re-useable drinking bottles with them if possible. Thanks!
You may have seen the lovely tree in the entrance hall covered in paper baubles. If you look closely, printed on each ornament is a special request. A request for an item that would help a person in need.
The Garrison Creek Daycare is asking that we all pick an ornament and bring it back along with the item to put under the tree. It’s a perfect little ‘do good, feel good’ gesture to demonstrate the spirit of the Holiday.
The deadline is tomorrow so be quick!
The annual Niagara Winter Concert will be held on Tuesday, December 12!
The kindergarten children will take the stage at 5:30pm. The grade students will have their performance at 6:30pm. Both productions will take place in the gymnasium.
This year we are requesting donations of non-perishable food items for our food drive going to the Parkdale Food Bank which we are doing in association with the the Toronto Police Service , 14th Division.
Just a reminder that the next Council meeting is on Wednesday, November 29th, 6-7pm, in the school library. As always, there will be childcare and a light meal provided.
We plan to discuss and accept volunteers for the Playground Fundraising Committee and hope to rally troops for the Holiday Luncheon. We’ll hear an update from Principal Marsh and take suggestions for fun winter initiatives (ie charity drives, family skating) and fundraising opportunities.
We hope to see you there!
Get your very own school t-shirt! For $15 you and/or your child can take home a cool keepsake… a memento…. a souvenir that will evoke all the fond memories of elementary school. What a nice way to remember those wonderful years at the ‘Little School with the Big Heart’!
Get yours now!
Don’t forget that this Friday is a PD Day!
