First Council Meeting of the Year!

Come one, come all to our first School Advisory Council meeting of the year! We’ll be meeting in the Music Room on Tuesday, January 15th at 7pm. Childcare is provided.

At the meeting, you’ll learn about upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, hear updates from Principal Root, and you’re encouraged to share any ideas or suggestions you may have. You don’t need to be on the council to attend a meeting – all caregivers are welcome.

If you have any questions for the Principal, you can send them his way in advance of the meeting using this quick and easy form.

Play EH! Dance-a-thon is Next Week!

As everyone settles back into school routines, we wanted to share the reminder that we are just over a week away from our Play EH! Dance-a-thon. On Thursday, January 17th Earl Haig students will bust a move to keep us moving on our goal of funding our playground revitalization.

A prize of 4 Ripley’s Aquarium tickets will be awarded to the student who raises the most money and a FREE pizza lunch will go to the class with the highest combined fundraising – so let’s get jazzed up about those pledge sheets!

Students can also bring loonies and toonies on the day of the Dance-a-thon for snacks and glow bracelets.

If you have any questions about the Dance-a-thon, please don’t hesitate to contact the Play EH! team.

 

 

Bring your empties to our Bottle Drive…

Happy New Year!

If you are resolving this January to de-clutter your home, we can help you get that resolution off to a great start. Our Earl Haig PS Bottle Drive is taking place this Saturday, January 5th, from 10am to 2pm, at the Beer Store (Woodbine & Mortimer). Offload your holiday empties and support school initiatives in the process!

Want to help out during the Drive? We could still use a few hands to sort bottles. Sign up here: http://signup.com/go/rqjtxTH

Play EH! Dance-a-thon

Earl Haig PS is hosting its first ever Dance-A-Thon for Play EH! on January 17th. We are going to move and groove our way to raising funds to revitalize our playground!

This week students are bringing home Play EH! Dance-a-thon pledge envelopes which contain a letter with all the details. Any amount our students can raise is great, but we are encouraging students to each try and raise at least $25. As a special bonus, the class with the greatest fundraising achieved will win a Pizza lunch. Students can also bring loonies and toonies on the day of the dance for snacks and glow bracelets!
