Hello from the School Council,
It’s hard to believe there are only three months left of the school year, and for half the students and families, we will be moving on to high school.
We wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate the school, the students and the staff on an incredible Music Night. For all of you who attended in March, we are sure you were as much in awe as we were about the incredible talent and the opportunities the teachers have provided for our children to shine in so many different ways. We wish the grade 6 students, who were deciding on which school to select for middle school, had an opportunity to see the show. It would certainly cement Earl Grey, as their school of choice.
We would also like to congratulate all of the grade 8 students and their teachers on an amazing Grade 8 market in February. Too often we are busy with our lives and are not able to take the time to reflect and “smell the roses”. The market was an amazing venture which, once again, provided the opportunity for all students to be creative, to learn about business and to show off their talents. We believe we speak for Grade 8 parents who were speechless, observing the skills our children have; that we may not see at home. In case you missed it, we have included the link for the Toronto Star article which featured the Earl Grey Market.
There continues to be all kinds of activities for students to be involved in this term. The School Council is focusing on raising money to support year-end activities and equipment for the classrooms. Students will all participate in the fundraising. Classes will be holding bake sales to raise money for year-end activities. Monies raised will support students who need financial assistance to participate in school activities, including graduation fun, school trips and in class school activities. A portion of the money raised last year paid for Eric Walters, the author, who held a workshop for all students last month.
Another Music Night will be held on the evening of Thursday, May 29th. We will be holding a Silent Auction during the evening and selling food and goodies.
We need YOUR HELP collecting items for our SILENT AUCTION. Many of you work at businesses that may be able to contribute an item or activity. Alternatively, please ask a local business that you know to contribute an item or activity.
Please email Paul Woodman at
if you have an item to contribute. Although the event is 6 weeks away, there is a great deal to organize.
Feel free to contact me directly if you have any suggestions, questions or if you would like to volunteer.
