This month there are a few opportunities to support real-life application of our character traits of 'empathy' and 'responsibility'. Through altruistic charitable campaigns, our students have concrete examples of what they can do to help others, be it in Canada through our Fort McMurray campaign, the larger world, through the Heart and Stroke campaign, or their own school, through our community outreach events. Thank you for helping your children see these connections and encouraging their participation.
CLASS RAFFLE BASKETS!
Our School Council has asked us to help support raising funds for our own school as well by creating ‘class raffle baskets’. These baskets should include objects donated by our students or other places that you know that support schools. These baskets may include objects/equipment pertaining to sports, music, arts and crafts, games, movies or a basket of miscellaneous objects that your children and family would enjoy. Please consider donating items to help fill these baskets to support our school.
Whatever your child's class collects will be wrapped up into a basket of ‘goodies’ and raffled off at our Community BBQ and Fun Fair on June 2nd. We hope that the funds generated will help us pay for many school resources and upgrades. We thank all parents/guardians for helping us with this initiative and participating in both the donations and the raffle. Thanks for your help! See the pictures for some ideas for raffle basket items!
