Please note: tonight’s parent council meeting is being cancelled due to bad weather.
We hope you will join us next Wednesday, January 30 at 6:45pm!
Parent Council has decided to host a fun-filled social event at an Ottawa 67’s game in March for all students and their families.
We need to sell tickets in advance and for that we require a parent or team of parents to step up and help organize and coordinate the event details.
Our Executive has started the ball rolling but as many of our usual go to parent volunteers are already very busy, we have no one to run this event.
We have a date, have set ticket prices, and have already sorted out contact details and logistics for selling the tickets but we need YOU! Can you help coordinate ticket sales and distribution and help make this event a success?
Please help us make this fun event happen!
Contact Fundraising Chair Gillian Warren with any questions and to sign up as the organizer: firstname.lastname@example.org
A call out for Volunteers to help transport boxes of books to drop off locations!
Following the great success of our Annual Book Sale, the organizer had a guaranteed pick up of all leftover books. However, a few days after the sale it became apparent that the agreement had fallen through. Now there are close to 100 boxes of books left on the school stage in the gymnasium and we need everyone’s help to move them out before the Arts in the Park showcase in December.
We are asking every family of the school to consider picking up a box or 2 every day/every week and delivering to various locations within the city. Whether you drive in the am to drop children off, pick up at night from Aladin child care or walk to school with a wagon, hopefully, we can count on you! It’s as simple as walking in, explaining what you are getting at the Office and grabbing what you can off the stage in the gym.
Please note that we cannot drop off more than 2-3 boxes at a time so if you happen to be driving all over the city, think about dropping off to different locations to help spread the wealth instead of all of us heading to the nearby locations. Here are some addresses of organizations who accept used books:
