Get Ready to Party!
Our first school party is fast approaching! The T/TH class will have their Halloween party October 30, while the M/W/F classes will have theirs October 31.
Children are welcome to dress up in their costumes (no scary costumes or toy weapons such as knives, guns, swords, etc) that day. There are sign-up sheets inside the classroom if you would like to bring treats or help out with the party.
Just in Time for the Holidays!
Starting to think about baking all of those holiday goodies? Even if Christmas hasn’t crossed your mind yet, Mom’s Pantry is just the place to get all your supplies, as well as lots of other tasty treats for the season (and any other time of year too!)
Order forms were handed out this past week, please let your teacher know if you did not receive yours. Orders and money are due October 28/29. Please be sure all cheques are made out to Kidsplace Nursery School. Delivery is still to be confirmed, but will likely be at the beginning of December.
Kidsplace will receive between 20% to 40% profit on this fundraiser, with most items falling in the 40% range! (Sell $10, we get to keep $4!)
Prizes! Prizes! Prizes!
So…when we did so well on our first fundraiser, why do we still need to keep that momentum going? The more we raise, the more funds our teachers have to improve the classroom, buy much-needed supplies and even purchase some “wish list” items.
So we thought we’d sweeten the pot a little. Here’s the scoop:
Classroom Prizes: The top fundraiser in each of our three classes per semester (Sept-Dec; Jan-May) will receive a gift from Scholastic Canada.
Overall Prize: The top overall fundraiser (all classes combined) in each semester (Sept-Dec; Jan-May) will receive a movie theatre gift card (admission for two).
Our Annual General Meeting takes place November 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the library at Calvin Christian School. All Kidsplace families are encouraged to attend. It’s a great way to learn more about the school, get to know the teachers better, and meet the board. There will be snacks!
