I would like to express my thanks and
gratitude to our School Council/Fundraising Association for organizing another
very successful Christmas Market this past weekend! Thank you to everyone
who came out to enjoy the music, food, shopping and positive energy of a
In the coming weeks, we have two
opportunities to support other people, which come around in December: our
Christmas Hampers and, this year, a Christmas Store.
The Christmas Hamper
This is a collection of gift
cards or monetary donation, which is divided equally and shared with some of
our Ken Taylor families who would benefit from this initiative at this time of
year. If you would like to participate in this project, please drop off
your donations/gift cards at the office between now and Friday, December 14th.
The Christmas Store:
is an initiative to support the students and families at another CBE school,
Catherine Nichols Gunn. We are asking interested families to donate new
or gently used items, which are then used to create a ‘Store’ where the
students at C.N. Gunn can then bring some small change (loonies and toonies)
and purchase gifts for their parents. These children do not have the
opportunity to buy a gift at Christmas for their parents. The ‘Store’ is run
by the grade 5-6 leaders who also giftwrap the items for the students.
Any money ‘raised’ by students purchasing the gifts is then used to help
off-set the cost of these students’ Outdoor School learning experiences.
Please see a letter from Principal, Steve Wigglesworth which has more

On another note: We also raised $1760
through the Indigo Adopt A School book campaign! We will be able to use
these funds to purchase books for our Learning Commons at an additional 30%
discount J Thank you to everyone who supported us through
