Earl Haig School Council depends on family, guardians, and the Earl Haig community to assist with planning, organizing, and staffing our events. With your support, we cannot make the events happen, as we are always in need of dedicated volunteers! Throughout the school year there are many events hosted by School Council (listed below); we would love to have you join in the fun! Please think about your interests and time availability, and contact us soon.
If you have any special skills that you think would be beneficial to supporting our events, or council in general please let us know. Help is always appreciated.
There are lots of ways adults can be involved at Earl Haig PS!
Pumpkin Patch – October 26th, 2017.
Annually Earl Haig School Council transforms the Kindergarten Play Yard into a Pumpkin Patch where people may purchase their Halloween pumpkin and some amazing baked goods.
Volunteers are needed to unload the pumpkins from the farmer’s truck, set-up the pumpkins (6am), and assist in selling the pumpkins and baked goods starting at 7:30am onward. If you are able to help, please sign-up here.
Bakers are need to bake yummy, healthy, breakfast-type goods (with no nuts!). You may bring your goods the morning of the sale directly to the Baked Goods table, or drop them off on Wednesday, October 25th at the main office. Thank you!
HULLABALOO – December 1st, 2017.
Launched in 2013, this event has been highly successful for the two years it has run. The Hullabaloo is an adult-only, fun night out with a silent auction that raises a significant amount of funds. Goods and services are donated by local businesses, parents and faculty. It’s a great time that combines community spirit with a little holiday shopping.
