Around the Schools – November 22, 2010

The Christmas spirit of giving hope and joy to those less fortunate can be found in the classrooms at École Heather Park Elementary School. The students from Mrs. Harms, Mr. Laupitz & Mr. Frost assembled 38 shoeboxes for a very worthwhile cause: Operation Christmas Child.  Each filled shoebox included school supplies, age-appropriate toys, toiletry items and a personal note that will be given to children throughout the world. A major focus for OCC this year is to give to Haiti.
The PAC of our school invites students and their families to join them for a movie night in the multi-purpose room on Friday, November 26th. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the show starts at 7pm.  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be projected on the big screen with stereo sound.  Popcorn and other concession goodies will be sold as well. Admission is $3 per person or $10 per family.
During the surprise power outage last week, students from Mme. Lane, Mr. Franz and Mr. Frost were enjoying their much anticipated field trip to the Aquatic Centre.
We will also be hosting another Volleyball Playday on Nov.25th—lots of positive sportsmanship, volleyball skills and fun to be demonstrated by all involved.
Other dates to remember—report card writing days are coming.  Intermediates (gr. 4-7) do not attend school on November 26th and Primaries (gr.K-3) do not attend school on November 29th.
