With a Little Help From Our Friends!

Our Spring Festival will be full of fun – we just need some more volunteers (especially in the 5:30pm onward slots) to make it run smoothly and give our hardworking station leads a chance to enjoy the festival… will you help? We have lots of cool stations that could use a little help, including:

  • Tuck Shop: AKA prizing central! This is where kids will come to claim their prize tickets for a variety of candy and toys.
  • Gift Basket Raffle: Volunteers needed to sell raffle tickets, and help with prizes, draws and distribution.
  • Creative Hair Design: Create fun hairstyles using temporary spray colour or pipe cleaners, gel and hairspray.
  • Arcade: Old school style fair games that the kids go bananas for. Most involve tossing a ball or bean bag to knock objects down for prize tickets. Volunteers needed to run the games and award prize tickets.

Please sign-up here.

Thanks to all the staff members and volunteers that have already so generously signed up to volunteer – we couldn’t do it without you!

Earl Haig Happenings This Week

Bike to School Week

Bike to School Week is a free, fun, week-long celebration for students of all ages and abilities. School participation in Bike to School Week enhances sustainability curriculum, builds community, and highlights the benefits of active transportation – like less congestion and healthy, energized students. So, let’s get on those bikes all week long!

PS – Scooters count too! And if your kiddo just wants to walk – totally cool too.

Freezie Friday!

We raised a whopping $600 for our playground at our first Freezie Friday. Don’t fear if you missed it, we’ll be back this Friday at lunchtime for another Freezie Friday (so pack a loonie!)

Big thank you to the volunteers who made our first go a success!

Play EH is Soaring!

Congratulations to all the successful bidders for our recent Play EH auction!  We raised $5,500 and gave our thermometer a boost to $62,000.  Thank you to everyone who participated and helped make this initiative a success!

And the good news keeps coming…TDSB has finalized the cost of our playground revitalization to be $81,000.  We are SO close!  Let’s all get behind the Spring Festival and organize those Play EH garage sales on June 8th so that our kids can enjoy the new playground in 2020.
