Food Drive

Posted on

Our food drive will continue the next two weeks, ending on December 19th.  Thank you for your generous donations so far!  Please note that cash donations will now be awarded 10 points per dollar.  If you’d like to make a cash donation you can put it into an envelope in your child’s folder.  Thanks for your support!

Primary Christmas Program

Posted on

The primary department is excitedly preparing for our Christmas program.  It will be held on Thursday,  December 20 at 1 o’ clock in the main auditorium.   Feel free to invite grandparents or other loved ones to this event. The part time Kindies don’t usually attend school on a Thursday so this will be a bit out of the norm for us.   We are asking that you drop your child off at our classroom by 12:30 so that we can get ourselves ready.  The program should be over by 2 o’clock and Christmas Holidays will officially begin!

Our class will be stars.  Please dress your child in black from top to bottom.  We will provide a glittery star headband.

Our class has been working with Mrs. Caswell on learning two songs.  She will be picking a few students for a solo part.  If your child volunteered for this you will find a sheet with the words for Look Up in your child’s folder.  Feel free to look it up on youtube and help them learn the bracketed section.

Garage Sale Tomorrow

Posted on

Tomorrow is our Primary Toy Garage Sale!  It will be held in the chapel.  We appreciate all the donations that have come in and are excited to host this event!  Feel free to come by before or after school to shop.  Our class will be visiting the garage sale in the morning.  If you’d like your child to participate we are suggesting that they bring a small amount of money ($2 or $3 perhaps) and a shopping bag labelled with their name.  All money earned will be put towards our local Ann Davis House.

Garage Sale

Posted on

Come one, come all!  On Tuesday, December 4 the primary department is hosting a garage sale in the chapel.  The sale will be open before school, beginning at 8:30 until the bell rings, and after school until 3:30.  Parents are invited to shop during those times, and students will be visiting the sale during the school day with their classes.

The majority of items will range in price from .25 to $2 with a few bigger pieces being priced higher.

Please send children with a bit of money to shop, if you wish, and with a plastic grocery bag labelled with their name, for their purchases to go in.  This could be a great opportunity for your child to buy a little Christmas gift for a sibling!

Two Opportunities to “Shine” this Holiday Season

Posted on

As the holiday season approaches our class has two opportunities to bless those in need around us:

  1.  Primary Garage Sale – We are looking for donations of gently used toys.  We will have the sale on Tuesday, December 4th.  All proceeds will go to the Ann Davis House.  This might be a great opportunity to clean out the closets of unused toys before Christmas arrives.  It might also be a fun opportunity for your child to pick out and buy inexpensive Christmas gifts for their siblings.
  2. Salvation Army Food Drive – We are looking for canned and boxed non-perishable food items.  Our class will get points for each item brought in.  The class with the most points will win a prize!  I will give more details in the next few days as I receive more information.

Thanks for considering helping out in these areas!
