Fudge Sale - Your HELP is needed!

Dear Parents,

The Home and School Association will be holding a fudge sale during the two-day Spring Concert series next week to raise money to support the purchase of new play equipment for the Kindergarten and Grade 1 students.

At West Royalty we were very fortunate to have a beautiful new wing added to our school; however, we currently do not have the necessary play equipment to support these new students.  Your HELP is needed!

We are asking parents to help us raise money by donating a pan of fudge to sell on June 1st and 2nd at the Spring Concerts.   Donations should be dropped off at the school no later than 2 pm on May 31st.

Any donation or purchase is much appreciated!   On behalf of the staff and students of West Royalty School, thank you for your support.

May 16th Update

They say that April showers bring May flowers - I dunno what they say about May showers, except maybe to build an ark!

Our next Home and School Meeting will be held on June 14th at 6:30 in the staff room. We will be nominating the executive position of Treasurer for the 2011-2012 school year. If you would like to nominate someone, a form will be sent home soon with the children, and is available here.

The Giving Tree Award is an award presented to a parent who is leaving the school this year. We ask that you consider nominating a parent who has contributed to the school over their years of being a parent of children here. Their name will be displayed on a red apple and added to the display in the lobby of the school. Further details and nomination form is available here.

We have scheduled a family school grounds clean up for Saturday May 28th from 10-12. Please come out and support this Home and School initiative. Bring your shovels and rakes! We will be focusing on the front beds of the school, and will need some muscle power. We also hope to  pick up any litter around the grounds.  If you have any hearty perennials or bulbs to contribute toward beautifying the front beds of the school, please drop them off by 10AM on May 28, or send them to school with your child on Friday May 27. The rain date for this event is June 4th.

It’s unbelievable that we’re now announcing dates into June! Where did the time go? There are a lot of fun activities planned for the children to participate in during June - the Spring concert, field trips, and the Fun Day to mention a few. Stay tuned for details!

Cheers,
DB
