March H & S

Date: March 23, 2017 Author: chelseawqsbqc Categories: Home & School News, News

February has been a busy month, a big thanks to all the Home & School members who worked hard volunteering and coordinating events. We bought new bins for the school library to help them with book collections!

Thanks to Asha for co-ordinating, and Jacinthe and Maggie for assisting with, Staff Appreciation week Feb. 6-10. And thank you to the parents who donated dishes for the Staff luncheon. The Staff were treated very well for the week with lots of nice treats and notes of thanks!

Home & School hosted an event at the school on Saturday, February 18th to raise funds for the Outdoor Learning Centre. While the event was not particularly well-attended, the event itself was lovely, and the auction portion raised about $2,000 for the OLC project. A few parents also made donations directly to the Centre. Thanks to Maggie, Nicki, Tricia and the rest of the volunteers for coordinating this event.

We are all looking forward to the school break, as volunteers get tired too and need a rest. But we will be back on March 10th, when we will also host another Fun Friday for the kids! Then, we are bringing Jungle sport back to the school, hopefully everyone received their forms and has signed and returned them to the office!

Also, on March 23rd, we will be hosting an Art Show, where you will be able to mix & mingle and admire your child and others’ artworks and order mementos for you and your family   The children have all created their works of art now, and more information will follow on how to view and order them soon!

Finally, we will be doing another textile recycling drive in April with Bag2School, so look for your bags coming home or just start your own pile as the weather warms and the wardrobes adjust accordingly!

The next H&S meeting is on Wed. March 8th at 6:30 pm. We are always looking for new members and helpers, as our small group is often stretched thin trying to execute all of our tasks, so please feel free to join us!
