The students have been hard at work collecting books for a book sale to be held this Saturday at Mayfair in support of the recent devastation in Nepal. All proceeds collected from the donation and sale of books will go directly to support relief efforts for victims of the Nepal earthquake. If you have books that you would like to donate to this worthy cause, please send them in by this Friday.
Tomorrow is the very last day to bring in your hotdog orders if you forgot to send it in today.
We are hosting an volunteer orientation session tonight at 6:30 in the School Library which will last about a half an hour. We’ll also be delivering flyers in the neighbourhood if anyone wants to participate with their family to the surrounding community. High school students can also get some of their volunteers hours this way.
We are still looking for donations of toys for our prize booth. We only have about 8 bins full and need much, much more items. Items can include: stuffed toys, toys, games, puzzles, books, crafty kits, etc.
I am also looking for one or two individuals who can act as event photographers for Mayfair. One of the donors had asked if I could take a photo of the winner of the raffle prize they donated and it would be great to send these photos to our donor. We always love seeing the pictures too!
Pre-sale raffle tickets (and money) are also being collected if you want to get your tickets early. The Mayfair team will look after putting your tickets in the corresponding bags for your chance to win amazing prizes.
Hot dog forms and money are currently being collected. In order to participate, please send along your completed forms and money to your child’s teacher. Hot dog days are scheduled for: Friday, May 29, Thursday, June 4, Friday, June 12. Proceeds will be used towards the Grade 6 camping trip at the end of the year.
A reminder that the school will be closed this Monday due to the Victoria Day Holiday. We hope you enjoy a safe and restful weekend.
Today our students and staff took part in a lockdown practice. The police were very pleased with how well students and staff followed the procedure.
