Hodgson is having a Spirit Day on Friday, October 31st. The Spirit Day morning will include school-wide activities, a food drive for the Daily Bread Food Bank and a costume contest. A Dance and Alternate Activities are planned for the afternoon. Hodgson’s Student Leadership Council will be involved in the organization of this event.
Students will attend their regularly scheduled period one class, where they will learn about and discuss the issue of hunger in Toronto. After that, they will join their Colour House to participate in door decorating, hat making, scarecrow (mascot) creating, and food drive collection. Colour Houses will compete for points through teamwork, participation, creativity, and clean-up. Individuals may also compete in the costume contest in the following categories: scariest, funniest, most ridiculous, and most creative. We will end the morning with a Colour House Assembly in the gym. After lunch, students can choose to attend the Hallowe’en Dance or they can choose to go to the Library for alternate activities. If your child will not be attending the afternoon session, please let us know in advance by telephone (416) 393-0390 or via email.
We are asking for donations of:
• old clothes, masking tape, and newspapers for the scarecrows
• flattened cereal boxes, paper plates, and newspapers for the hats
• non-perishable goods for the food drive
Please have your child bring any donated items to her or his homeroom teacher.
