Socks for the Streets

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We need you to donate socks for our sock drive. There are over 7000 people that sleep on the streets or in shelters in Toronto every single night. Here in Canada we often take for granted something as simple as warm socks, but for those who are less fortunate, warm socks are essential for their health and comfort in the freezing winter season. The socks must be new adult sized and preferably cotton. We will be collecting the socks until December 13th and then we will deliver them to Scarborough Town Centre where the Indie 88 radio station is gathering all the socks donated for the Socks for the Streets Campaign. Their goal is to gather 35,000 pairs of socks. We believe, with your generosity and support, this goal can be achieved! Please bring in new socks and help us pay it forward.

Sincerely,

The Silver Stars and Students of St. Andrews PS

Avoid Catching/Spreading the Flu

Flu Poster

Kids and Flu

The flu germs spread when people cough, sneeze or talk. The flu germs can also live on surfaces like toys, countertops, and door handles for up to eight hours.

Students can pass the flu germs to each other, to school staff and to family members before they show symptoms. Children under five, seniors and people in poor health are at greater risk of complications from flu.

Vaccination is the best protection against flu.  It takes 2 weeks for the vaccine to be fully effective so get it early.

Tips on staying healthy this flu Season:

  1. Get your flu shot early
  2. Wash your hands often
  3. Avoid touching face and eyes
  4. Cover your cough or sneeze
  5. Do not share drinking cups and utensils
  6. Disinfect common surfaces like door handles, hand railings, keyboards, cell phones and tablets.
