There’s a lot going on in the next few months. Here are a couple of big items and an important save the date!
Announcing The Butterfly Project
This great initiative, spearheaded by Ms. Sanderson, will see the all the children paint wooden butterflies which will then be permanently fixed to the fences surrounding the entire Earl Haig property. On May 2nd, families are invited to help prime/prepare wooden butterflies for painting. There are approximately 650 butterflies that need to be prepared for ‘flight’ so the more hands the merrier.
Painting: 9 am – 12pm
Location: The Gym
Supplies We Need (donations are being accepted now):
Clean, small containers to hold paint (yogurt containers are great)
1 to 1 1/2 inch paint brushes & small paint rollers.
Large Rubbermaid bins or plastic laundry baskets (please label the bins and we will return them)
We will be also be “selling” butterflies at the Festival for $5. A family can paint a butterfly and the money will go to the milkweed garden that we want to build.
There are a couple of nice photos of the Grade 4s at the McMichael Gallery on our Facebook page. Thanks to our photographers in the field.
