Join Us at Our Food Around the World Potluck!

foodAroundTheWorldGraphic-01We hope everyone had a great first day back from March Break! Earl Haig PS is getting back into the swing of things quickly with our wildly popular (and delicious!) annual potluck – Food Around the World!

Put your chef’s hat on and prepare a dish to share with fellow Earl Haig families and staff. Our potluck will take place this Thursday, March 21, from 6-8pm, in the gymnasium.

Bring a dish from your cultural background or simply one that your family loves to eat. Whether it’s a main dish, salad or dessert… everything will be appreciated and enjoyed.

Please bring your own cutlery and plates and clearly label any serving dishes. Remember, all dishes must be nut-free. Please label any other special dietary considerations (gluten-free, egg-free, etc.) that your dish may include.

Afterward, Culture Shock Dance Troupe will rock our bodies and teach us some new moves!

Hope to see you there!

At $50,000, Earl Haig is Getting Serious About Play EH!

Thank you to everyone who came out for “A Musical Night Out” on February 23. It was an evening of friends, music, food and FUNdraising. The night brought in $5,000 for Play EH!

Students are also doing their part to raise money for our playground revitalization. Last week, students raised $645 by entering our “Principal for a Day” draw. Two lucky students went behind the scenes with Mr. Root and Mr.Ng to experience a day in the life of a Principal. The enthusiasm of our students for Play EH! is contagious.

Join us in raising $100,000 for our school’s new outdoor play space benefiting our community for years to come. To give, please click here.


Call for Spring Festival Volunteers!

Spring may not be in the air quite yet, but (possibly as a winter coping mechanism) we are getting the ball rolling to make this year’s Earl Haig PS Spring Festival the best one yet!

The Spring Festival (which will take place Thursday, June 6th) is a big fun fair and BBQ in the school yard that raises money for school initiatives.  It’s tons of fun and a great community building event that the kids absolutely LOVE – but it needs lots of parent support to exist!

This year, our volunteer need is even greater as we’re planning a SUPERSIZED Spring Festival to raise money for Play EH!.  We’ve got fun new activity stations planned, as well as many old favourites, so there are lots of opportunities to make a difference.  Whether you can spare an hour (or more!) volunteering at one of the stations, or you can help with the prep work, please consider lending a hand!

The first volunteer planning meeting will take place Sunday March 3rd at 8pm (and there will be snacks!). If you’re interested in volunteering — whether you can make the meeting or not — please email the Festival Organizer, Jen Barnes for all the info.
