Thursday, October 25th - Hallowe'en Cake Walk

School Council transforms the gym into a bake shop where students have the chance to win their treat of choice! Donated baked goods (and non-food items) are displayed in the gym and students are encouraged to put their tickets into the raffle bag in front of the treats they like. Tickets are given to students who bring in donated items or can be purchased for $0.25 each or 5 for $1.00. Tickets will be available to purchase in advance during the week of the cake walk. Special coloured tickets may be purchased by students who have or whose family has dietary restrictions to ensure those students win non-food or nut free items. We are asking parents who will be donating cookies or cupcakes to please package them in groups of 4 or 6 to allow for more raffled items.  If you would like to volunteer, please click on the link:!/showSignUp/409054daeac2ba5ff2-halloween1

Friday, October 26th - Popcorn Day

If you did not pre-order popcorn and would like to participate, please send in $1 per bag with your child. Students will have the opportunity to purchase popcorn at first recess to be delivered at the second nutrition break.
