Calling All Cupcake Bakers!

baker-valentine-red

We need bakers for our annual Valentine’s Day cupcake sale on Thursday, February 14th. All shapes, colours, and flavours of cupcakes are welcome. Feel free to get creative – the fancier they are, the faster they seem to sell!

All baked goods must be nut free. Please be sure to include a note with any further dietary considerations (i.e. wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free).

Please bring your cupcakes to the office on February 13th or the morning of the 14th.

The bake sale will be taking place after lunch and each delicious cupcake will cost $1. Proceeds will go towards Play EH! and other school initiatives.

Thank you!

Turning Up the Heat on Play EH!

Everyone is getting behind Earl Haig’s playground revitalization and we have some great news about it to share on this very cold day! Your School Advisory Council has approved a $5,000 contribution to Play EH!  — turning the heat up to $40,000 on our fundraising thermometer!

Did you know that “only 5% of children ages 5-17 are active enough during the school day to meet healthy activity level guidelines for 1 hour of moderate to vigorous activity a day” (source: OPAL)….lets get our students inspired to get active with a new climbing wall and monkey bars!

Visit the Play EH! team in the front foyer this Friday morning 7AM – 9AM to warm up with free coffee and to purchase tickets for A Musical Night Out. We would be happy answer any Play EH! questions you have. (You can also take a look at some FAQ’s we’ve posted online, too.)
