Dates to remember

It’s hard to believe we are already in December and nearly a third through the school year! We will be having a busy three weeks until Christmas break, with Christmas Concert practices soon running full-tilt, and bake/craft sales, a Burger Bash, and a visit to the movies for Grades 4-9 rounding out our time.

We will also have three students heading to JSET (Jurisdictional Student Engagement Team) with Ms. Galbraith in early December, and Grade 8-9 students working on preparing their product pitches for the Bulldog Pen, coming up in January (more details below). Grade 9 students will have tickets for sale later this week to see Hypnotist Sebastian Steel (PG- 13) at the school on January 13, as a fundraiser for their Quebec Trip happening in 2018. There will also be a silent auction that evening that students will be seeking donations for. Tickets are $35 and are available from Grade 9 students going to Quebec, or at the school office. They will make great stocking stuffers!

Thank you to everyone who ordered poinsettias from our Grade 5/6 students. All funds raised from that fundraiser go to the Grade 5/6 Edmonton Trip in June 2018. There are still some red and white poinsettias available for sale. They are $13 each, and are lovely healthy plants! Feel free to visit the school office if you would like to purchase a poinsettia.

We are also looking forward to the Craft Sale the Grade 5/6 students are holding on Thursday, December 7, in the school to raise money for their Edmonton Trip. That same day, the Grade 7 class will be selling cookies for our cookie sale. Cookies will be selling for 50 cents and up, and craft sale items will start at $1.
