Happy Halloween, Earl Haig!

We want to thank everyone in the Earl Haig community for your fantastic support at last week’s pumpkin patch. We sold out of pumpkins in record time and we had amazing support from our volunteers and bakers. We could not be happier!

(Here’s a reminder about the many ways your fundraising dollars and volunteer efforts help our students.)

Have a happy, haunted and safe Halloween everyone!

Pumpkin Patch – Tomorrow!

How do you mend a broken jack-o-lantern?

With a pumpkin patch!

Just a reminder that we are turning the Kindergarten play yard into our very own pumpkin patch tomorrow morning.

We will have pumpkins of various sizes for sale ($7 each), and yummy baked goods and jars of honey up for grabs, too. Please note, the event is cash only. For your convenience, pumpkins can be purchased at the sale and picked up at the end of the school day.

It looks like it will be a chilly morning, so be sure to warm yourself up with a hot cup of FREE coffee at the pumpkin patch, too.

As always, all money raised helps fund school and education initiatives for Earl Haig students.

We hope to see you there!

Happy hauntings!

Pumpkin Patch Volunteers Needed!

We need your help to make our annual Pumpkin Patch on October 25th a great success!

Volunteer on Pumpkin Patch day

The fun begins early with unloading the pumpkins and transforming the Kindergarten playground into a Pumpkin Patch. Then, we need volunteers to sell the pumpkins and baked goods throughout the morning! Will you help? We sure hope so! Please sign up online with the shift (or shifts!) that work for your schedule: http://signup.com/go/LpZcDuJ

Volunteer ahead of time

Want to help but can’t volunteer at the event? You’re in luck! We will need bakers to donate a breakfast friendly baked good (please, no nuts!). Bakers can bring their yummy goods to the office the day before or to the Kindergarten yard the morning of the sale.

As always, thanks for your help!
