Dear Lochside families,

Please read on for this week’s update:

Silent Auction Fundraiser – June 2nd  – 7 pm to Midnight – Beach House Restaurant

If you don’t have your tickets to our Silent Auction yet, now is the time to get them!!!  The Beach House restaurant is asking for an estimate of the number of people who will be attending the event.  Please purchase your tickets this week so we are able to provide them with the amount of people who are attending.  A form will be coming home with students on Tuesday (also attached) in which you can fill out your name, how many tickets you would like and then return the form and payment to your child’s classroom. Tickets are also available by contacting Kelly Perry directly. We will have your tickets waiting for you at The Beach House!

Tickets are $30 which includes food, cash bar, the silent auction, and dancing!! Please remember that this is an adult event. 

Thank you so much to the parents who have donated items for the auction so far … we will have some great items up for bid!  If you would like to donate an item, please deliver it and the donation form to the marked box in front of the office.  The more donations we have, the more funds we will be able to raise for a new electronic sign for Lochside!

This is shaping up to be a fantastic event!  We appreciate your support and hope to see you all there!

Grade 5 Yearbooks

Grade 5 yearbook sales will take place near the main doors of the school during drop-off and pick-up time for Camp Thunderbird on Wed May 24th and Fri May 26th. We will have order forms on hand and will accept $20 cash or cheque made out to LEPAC.  An order form was also sent out by class reps last week and can be printed and submitted with payment to the school office. Forms and payment must be submitted no later than Friday May 26th. 

½ Price Scholastic Book Fair

Our Giant Scholastic Book Fair was a GIANT success and we were able to provide over $600 in books to our Learning Commons!
