Christmas Soiree
The school Christmas Soiree will be held on Thursday, Dec 15 at 6:30pm in the gym. This will be a potluck with music and activities for the whole family.

Please bring an appetizer if your last name starts with A to L or a dessert if your last name starts with M to Z.

There will be a silent auction of gift baskets made up from the donated items collected last week.
In addition to the silent auction, there will be boxes set up at the door to receive donations of unwrapped toys and/or food items for charity.

Skate with Santa
The Hart Community Association is sponsoring a Skate with Santa on Sunday, December 18. between 2:30 and 4:30 pm at Ridgeview rink and Bravery Park rink.

Bring your family and friends for fun, treats and hot chocolate.

Coats for the Cold
As of last week we have 66 coats collected that will be on display in the main foyer well into January. People can still drop off coats to donate in room 2015. We would prefer the coats to be recently laundered.

We do not have enough hangers for the coats so any donations of hangers are appreciated.

After the drive, the coats will be used to first serve our own school needs and then the greater Hart community and then the PG community.
