We Need YOU!

The Earl Haig Community Festival is on Thursday and the organizers are looking for some more helping hands.  Post a comment to the blog, or send an email to earlhaigschoolcouncil@gmail.com with your contact information and the times you are available between 3:30 and 7 and we will most definitely get back to you.

We hope that you will all come out and join in the fun. As always, these kinds of events are successful because of the support of our families.

In the tradition of an Old School Festival, we are bringing back some tried and trues with our:

Cake Walk and Bake Table
Cakes and Baked Goods are still being collected so if you are feeling creative and in a baking mood then please let the School Council know or just show up with your treats the day of.

Win a Jar for $2
This is a fun way for all of the kids to win a prize but it relies on all of you to send in your fun jars filled with new “stuff” – the possibilities are endless

Other Fun Activities:
BBQ – with our talented BBQing guru teachers manning those grills
SpyCaching – with new clues and intrigue
Glitter Tattoos are back by popular demand
Life-Sized Chess Game
Outdoor Games Area

The Craft Zone will feature brand new crafts and the introduction of a Craft Pass – Come and check it out!!

The Earl Haig Old School Community Festival Needs Jars!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAWe’re in the home stretch! The Earl Haig Old School Community Festival is on May 30 — that’s next week — and we need your help!

By popular demand, we are bringing back the JARS! The only catch? We NEED jars filled with cool things and LOTS of them. Starting next week, please bring in to school your jars filled with NEW things.

You can fill your jar with lots of one thing, like marbles, bubble
gum, stickers, balloons, racing cars – or go with a theme jar such as a jar
filled with magic tricks, crafts, outdoor activities – you get the idea.
Get creative and start planning YOUR jar! Jars can be dropped off in the office.

A filled jar can be yours (or your kid’s) for only $2 at our Old School Community Festival — buy a ticket, get a jar. It’s that easy!

Community Festival Rocks it Old School

Draft redux

Staff Appreciation Lunch

A reminder that May 24th is the staff appreciation lunch for all the amazing folks that keep Earl Haig running.   Folks from our school community can show their appreciation by providing snacks, light lunch items and treats.

Dishes can be dropped off in the staff room (second floor of the new wing) if they need refrigeration that morning or in the office into Louise’s capable hands if they can sit out.

Please post a comment on the blog or email earlhaigschoolcouncil@gmail.com if you are interested in contributing.
