33 Days of School

We have just passed the 33rd day of school (according to the JK students I spoke to today) and the activities at Earl Haig are coming in fast and furious.

What’s Coming Up:
October 20th
– Cross Country Finals
We have about 17 athletes competing at this meet – A new record for the Eagles.  The meet takes place at Ashbridges Bay.  Please have your child(ren) at school by 8:10am on Monday.
October 18 – Monarch Park 50th anniversary celebrations
October 19 – QSP Campaign Ends
October 23 – Pumpkin Patch
October 23 – Vision and Hearing Clinics
October 24 – Respect and responsibility assembly
November 7 – 2nd Annual Hullabaloo and Silent Auction

QSP Magazine Sales
We are almost at the $5000 mark.  Well done everyone! The more we sell the more our profit margin increases.  Good news as well because the campaign has been extended to Sunday October 19th.  Please place your magazine renewals on or before the 19th so that any funds raised can be used this school year for our Physical Education program.  Any orders placed after the 19th will count towards next years fundraising goal.
Orders can be placed at:  http://www.qsp.ca/Login/Index
Please use the code:  3721016

Pumpkin Patch
The annual Pumpkin Patch Planning is in full swing.  Bakers – We Need You!  We are looking for bakers to contribute items that can be sold at the bake sale table.  Please sign up at http://www.volunteerspot.com/login/entry/1015650068079 if you are able to bring something.  All baked goods must be nut free and breakfast type items are preferred.  Please bring the items to the office on 22nd or at the beginning of the Pumpkin Patch on the morning of the 23rd.
