Celebrations in May
All of the children have been very busily creatign their special Mother's Day gifts! They are very excited to give their surprise to their Mothers!
Once more, we will hold a circle time early in the month, which focuses on the celebration of Ramadan, which begins on Monday, May 6 this year. We will also incorporate projects in the art room to acknowledge the start of Ramadan. In support of this celebration, we will be doing another collection for Winnipeg Harvest. The children will decorate a box and it will be available for contributions from May 6 - June 12, 2019.
Celebrations in June
Children will begin their Father's Day gift soon. If you would like your child's creation to be addressed to someone other than "Dad", please send Shannon an email and let us know whom we should address their gift to!
Our final fundraiser of the year is our gift card fundraiser for Jensen's Garden Center and Nursery!
Gift Cards can be purchased in $25 and $50 denominations, with orders due on Friday, May 3, 2019. Cards will be available for pick up on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at the school, just in time for Mother's Day!
The school receives 25% of all purchases back in fundraising revenue, so if you are thinking of what you will plant for your garden or flower beds this year, why not purchase your plants from Jensen's and support the school at the same time?
Thank you to everyone for your tremendous fundraising efforts this year, as well as your kind donations. We really appreciate it, and are thankful that we were able to repaint the school after 20 years, and replace our dishwasher with your help this year.
As the end of the year is fast approaching, we are looking for parents who would be interested in volunteering on our Board of Directors. Various positions are critical for us as we are a non-profit organization!
We have a list of positions and a brief description of each position, and these can be requested for reference. Board meetings are held once a month and it is a great way for parents/guardians to become more familiar with their child's school. If you are interested in a position, please see Shannon. Board meetings are generally held on a weekday evening that works for members from 6:30-8:30pm here at the school.
Open positions for 2019/20:
