Weekly Memo April 11

All Families

  1. CHILDRUN 2013  Are you ready to run?  How about jog or walk?  North Star has entered a team in the Children’s Hospital ChildRun for many years now, and we’re doing it again in 2013!  It’s a 5 km walk/run on Sunday, June 2nd near Children’s Hospital that is fun, great exercise for people of any age or fitness level, and an opportunity to support a wonderful charity.  If you would like to join us this year, early registration deadline is April 15th, so follow the instructions below to register.  Last year we had a great turnout and we hope to do even better this year.  Come out and enjoy a great experience with other North Star students, family and friends.  Anyone is welcome to join the team!  Register at: http://bcchf.ca/events/events-calendar/childrun/.  Click on Register>select No (unless you were a member last year and know your registration information)>Join an Existing Team>scroll down to North Star Montessori team, and enter your personal information.  The registration fee is lower if you register before April 15, so register now and mark the date on your calendar!  Further details to come! Please email Brett (Ryan’s dad) at [email protected] with any questions.
  2. LABELLING CLOTHES  Just a quick reminder to label all your child’s clothing items as we have noticed some clothing mix ups during times when students are all changing (ie. from their school uniforms into their martial arts uniforms and back).
  3. GRIDDLES WANTED We are looking to borrow several electric griddles for our upcoming school-wide “Pancake Breakfast”.  If you have a griddle that you are willing to loan us please let Jeanne know as soon as possible.  Thanks!
  4. OUT OF UNIFORM – CLEAN WATER BLUE DAY Wear blue to school on Fri, April 19th for Clean Water Day!  We continue to raise funds for Debra, an organization that supports children with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).  For a minimum donation of $1.00 (cash only) students will not be required to wear a uniform but be free to “choose blue” to wear that day.
  5. VOW OF SILENCE The Lower Elementary students are participating in the Vow of Silence through Free the Children on Thurs, April 18th.  By being silent for the day we are supporting the children of the world who do not have a voice to stand up for their rights.  Money raised will go to Free the Children.  There will be a donation jar outside the Lower Elementary classroom if you would like to donate money.  Thank you from the Lower Elementary!
