On October 30 and 31 we will be celebrating Halloween with fun, games and
costumes. The Costume Day is part of our annual Toonie fundraiser for Sick
Kids Hospital’s Child Life Toy and Game Fund. Child Life staff at the
hospital use this fund to purchase materials for inpatient care programs,
recreation and therapeutic play. Please bring a toonie contribution for the
fundraiser. Last year we raised $260.00!
If your child resists
wearing a costume to school, know that it is perfectly fine to come to
school without one! PLEASE DO NOT BRING FOOD ITEMS (HALLOWEEN TREATS) FOR
DISTRIBUTION TO CLASSMATES. We cannot accept them; they will be returned to
you with our apologies.
With the approach of the cold, wet weather, please remember to
remove your wet footwear downstairs when you enter the church. LABEL
YOUR CHILD’S BOOTS! Simply write their name inside with a Sharpie
marker to avoid confusion. Help us to keep our stairs and hallway dry.
If you have a current (done in the last 6 months) Vulnerable Sector Check
(VSC) you may want to consider bringing it in to be copied and kept on file.
We plan a school bus trip every June that you can sign up to attend if you
have a current police check. It must be no more than 6 months old when
presented to the school, but then can be good for up to 5 years if a
declaration is signed annually.
Picture Day is scheduled for October 22 and 23. Hunter’s Photography will be
in to take individual pictures of the children. We will do our best to bring
on those smiles You will receive a photo proof package with options to order
if you wish.
The nursery school will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on October
The themes for the month are Autumn is Here, Harvest, All About Apples, and
Pumpkins. Look for lots of fun crafts coming home.
