  3. FUNDRAISING CORNER Curling Event Tickets are now on sale!!! A Fundraising Committee member will be selling the tickets in the front hallway every Monday and Friday morning @ 8:15 and afternoon @ 3:30 (Thurs this week as Friday is a Pro D Day). Cash or cheque accepted. Cost is $35/ticket. This is a child free, fun filled parent afternoon at the North Shore Winter Club. Activities will include curling, silent auction, wine wall etc. We had an outstanding turn out last year, so let’s make it an even bigger success this year. No experience is necessary for curling. It is great fun for all levels of experience. Wine Wall We are calling out to each family to donate 1 bottle of either red or white wine for our WINE WALL which will be held at our Curling Event. We ask a minimum value of $12.00/bottle. There is a wine crate outside of Tiffany’s door in which to place your bottle of wine. This is not mandatory but please consider donating as this is an excellent way for us to raise money for our school. Please ensure your bottles are in house by Mon, Nov 17th.
  4. ALTERNATIVE PICK-UPS If you plan to have someone other than you (or an individual listed on your permanent pick-up list) pick up your child from school please remember to complete a One Time Authorized Pick-up Form as we are unable to release your child without one. In addition, we are unable to accept email authorization since it is the original signature that we require. Forms are located on the office bulletin board.
