Just a couple of notes for you this morning:
In the (hopefully unlikely) event that we close early for weather tomorrow, our Christmas concert will go ahead at 1:00pm on Thursday, December 13, 2018. And, by the same token, if we are closed on Friday afternoon, our Kindergarten Christmas concert will go ahead on Monday, December 17, 2018 at 1:00pm.
Continuing our efforts to instil values around community service, we have selected the Thrive Community Network as our charity for Christmas giving this year. The Thrive Community Network is a local organization that was established in 2001 as part of the province’s Community Youth Networks. The mandate of this organization is to provide services and support to resilient youth and young adults who live in poverty with limited access to mainstream programs and services.
Thrive is looking for new personal care items and stocking stuffers in order to give holiday stockings to its members at their annual Christmas dinner. They are specifically looking for men’s and women’s deodorant, body wash/soap, shampoo/conditioner, razors, shaving cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste, men’s and women’s socks, individual tissue packs, lip balms, laundry pods, warm hats, stretch gloves, hand warmers, and/or Sobey’s/Tim Horton gift cards of $5 or $10 values.
We will be accepting donations up to and including Friday, December 14, 2018 at which point we will deliver our collection.
Let’s show this organization our best generosity ever and support them in their efforts to shape the lives of these youth and young adults.
Thanks for your time and for your kind support…hope you’re off to a terrific day.
