This is a note to remind you that on Monday, November 12th, we will once again be taking time out to remember our veterans and their fallen comrades who gave up so much for the country they loved. We will be having one service for which all classes from grades 1-8 will be attending and participating. The service will begin at 10:00 am. All parents and community members are welcome to attend, but we ask that you kindly refrain from taking videos or photos of the students during the ceremony and please arrive early around 9:45 am to avoid disrupting the service.
We are asking that staff and children come to school dressed in dark bottoms, pants/skirts and white tops, shirts/blouses as St. Andrews’ way of showing our honour and respect to those who gave up their lives for us. Poppies will be distributed to all students on that day.
This year we are asking for a $1 donation for the War Veterans’ Poppy Fund. All funds raised go towards the care of our remaining veterans.
It is the generosity of Canadians that enables the Legion to ensure that our veterans and their dependants are cared for and treated with the respect that they deserve.
Thank you for taking the time to HELP US REMEMBER.
We hope to see many of you there.
The Staff and Students of St. Andrews P.S.
