We wanted to thank everyone who was able to come out to hear the White Hatter presentation that was given this past Tuesday evening and for the many people who helped organize it. Including Nicole, Megan, Reet and Kirsty. It was an amazing presentation and so informative. Brandon left us with a number of great resources that we would like to share with you. The link is www.thewhitehatter.ca you then clink on resources and select “parents”. This will lead you to a Guest area that asks for sign in, the password is whitehatter. Out of respect for the White Hatter organization, please do not share this information outside of the school as it is something they give out along with their presentation.
Thank you to everyone who helped out with Fun Lunch this week, many hands make light work!
Used Clothing and Rummage Sale
The Used Clothing Sale is coming back this year Thursday February 8th and Friday February 9th, so please hang on to your children's clothing that they have grown out of so it can be donated to this fun event. We are also accepting used toys this year that are in good condition and in working order. Please bring all of your donations to the school gym on Wednesday Feb. 7th at pick up.
As well this year, we are holding a Community Rummage Sale on Saturday, February 10th from 10 am – 2 pm. Please help by clearing your clutter over the next couple of months and have it ready in early February when donations will be collected. Donations of gently used household items, other than safety equipment, car seats, helmets and recalled items, are appreciated.
All the proceeds from this two events will go to support Camp Thunderbird for the grade 5's.
We are looking for about 10 volunteers to help with set up and take down as well as help work a few shifts as a cashier. Any interested parties please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, just a reminder that we have the on-going fundraiser at the Bottle Depot where you can donate the money from bottle returns to "LOCHSIDE GRADE 5 FUNDRAISER".
