Valentine’s Day Dance-a-thon

Thank you to everyone who made yesterday’s Valentine’s Day Dance-a-thon such a great success.  Between student donations, profits from the dance, and corporate sponsors, we were able to raise approximately $4200, exceeding our goal!  By using this money and accessing the YRDSB’s technology cost-sharing program, we should be able to purchase two new class sets of Chromebooks for student use!

Thank you to all of the families who donated money.  Thank you also to our School Council volunteers who gave up their time and efforts to make the day a success, particularly Jen Brinder who coordinated the full event.

Thank you to our corporate sponsors, Crescent Oral Surgery and Walt Orthodontics for their generous donations.  Thank you also to Felix Swim School and Shoppers Drug Mart (Bathurst St.) for their prize donations and to Levy Design for the flyer design.

Buddy Classes Spreading Kindness

Last week, Mrs. Eisen’s Grade 1 class and their buddies in Mr. Vosburg’s Grade 7/8 class worked together to make 100 sandwiches for the homeless.  The sandwiches were brought to the Ve’ahavta organization who then delivered them to the homeless through their street outreach program.  What a great opportunity for our older and younger students to work together to help our community!img_0755img_0757
