Signal Hill Announcements – December 6, 2019

“There’s just something beautiful about walking in snow that nobody else has walked on. It makes you believe you’re special.”

Carol Rifka Brunt

*************************************************

 

We have had our first snow fall and it is very exciting for all of the students and staff! We ask that students remember to dress properly for the weather so they can enjoy the outdoors at break times. This includes outdoor boots, snow pants, coats, hats and mittens. They are expected to take their boots off inside and wear indoor shoes.

We are requesting that everyone take their boots and shoes off at the front doors when we have snow and ice outside. This includes adults and children. Please carry your boots down the hallway. We are concerned for the safety of those walking down the halls as we have had some people slip and hurt themselves. It also keeps our school clean and tidy. Thank you for your cooperation.

*******************************************************

School hoodies will be delivered to your child in their classroom on Thursday, Dec 5th. If you do not want your child to have the hoody delivered to them (if they are to be a gift for example) then please email Erin Tierney erinplays@hotmail.com to have them put aside for pick up. Pick up will be Thursday, Dec 5 from 3pm- 4pm. If we don’t hear from you, expect them to come home with your child on Thursday. Thank you for your support and we look forward to spreading the school spirit!  From the Grade 7 Class J

********************************************

The 4th Annual Super Ty’s Toy Drive has now started!  Ty is a Grade 1 student at Signal Hill in his 3rd year of his journey with ALL leukaemia treatment at BC Children’s Hospital.

Please help Ty and his sister Tia fill the BC Children’s Oncology treasure chest!

The toy drive is in support of the Child Life Team at Children’s Hospital.  It is a program set out to let the children “just be a kid” while undergoing treatment. A chance to play and learn while staying in the hospital.  They provide learning tools – puzzles, games, math books, writing books, paint, play doh, markers, etc. They provide toys for the children as a distraction if they’re going through a hard time.  They also get to pick out a toy from the treasure chest when they’re done their chemo appointment. The treasure chest toys go directly to a child while receiving treatment. The treasure chest is often empty so they require lots of donations to keep it running.  Bring a smile to a brave child today and donate something special.!

All items need to be new and unwrapped.  No plush please.

Donation ideas:  pyjamas, slippers, housecoats (0-18 years), beyblades, play doh, trains, cars, activity books, Barbies, ponies, dolls, Play Mobile, Lego, puzzles, games, art supplies and diaries.

Toys can be dropped off in Mrs. Leverton’s classroom – room 112 at Signal Hill.

*********************************************************************************

Bottle Depot Fundraiser – There is now an account for the grade 7 grad fundraiser set up at the bottle depot in the Pemberton industrial park. Anybody who returns their bottles there can choose to donate all or some of the money to this account. Just let the person at the till know that this is where you would like the money to go. The account will be set up right through the school year.

Thanks for supporting the grade 7 students!
