Sir William Osler Angel Tree 2018

Sir William Osler Angel Tree 2018

Class 4A is once again running the Angel Tree. The Angel Tree is a way to give to the less fortunate this Christmas and provides our students the opportunity to reflect on how fortunate they are and to develop an understanding of the importance of charity in society. The Salvation Army has provided gift ideas, such as hats, gloves and toys for Family Services and Grace Haven. The tree will be set up in the front foyer from Tuesday December 4th until Monday December 17th.

There will be two kinds of angels on the tree this year. Red angels are for Family Services to help grown-ups and older children. Yellow angels are for Grace Haven to help new mothers with younger children. When you bring in your new unwrapped present, please leave it in the bins by the tree with the angel attached. Please do not donate any used or wrapped items. If you want to donate gift cards, they can be dropped off in the gift box in the office. Our goal is to have no angels left behind!

Your participation will make a difference for people this holiday season. By donating to this worthy cause, you can help the Salvation Army make sure that every family has a better Christmas. Remember, a little goes a long way. Take an angel. Buy a gift. Give a smile.

If you would like to participate, you can come in an pick an angel off of the tree when you drop off/pick up your child OR if your child takes the bus, please write me a note in the agenda and I will help your child choose an angel from the tree and put in into your child’s agenda.

This month we will be comparing and contrasting various versions of the Gingerbread man story. On Thursday, December 20th we will be decorating mini gingerbread houses. If you are able, we would appreciate a small donation of $2 to help offset the cost of materials (graham crackers, icing, candies). Thanks so much for your consideration! If possible, please send the donation by Fri, Dec 14th so I can go purchase supplies.

Step Counter Fun

Step Counter Fun

Today we met with our grade 7/8 buddies and finished coding our step counters.  Our buddies helped us design and create bands using duct tape, stickers and velcro.  We will wear our step counters Monday to Thursday (at school and see if we can get as many steps as Aysha did in her daily 8 hour journey for water.
