Bag2School

Our school is participating in a “Bag2School” campaign. We are collecting used textiles (for example clothing, blankets, pillows, etc) that can be donated and reused. Starting October 1st please send any fabric items to school.  Your donations do not have to be reusable/in good condition as all materials can be recycled. The more we collect, the more money our school will earn! The last day to donate will be Wednesday, October 17, 2018, after that no donations will be accepted. Donations can be sent with your child or dropped off at the main office during school hours. On Tuesday, October 16, the Eco Team will be staying until 5 pm for any larger drop off donations. Let’s change the world one recyclable at a time!!

 

The Umbrella Project

 

Welcome to The Umbrella Project!

This school year, your child will be participating in The Umbrella Project. The Umbrella Project is a curriculum designed to help your child learn the skills of emotional wellbeing. This year we will be focusing on gratitude, grit, self-compassion, autonomy, mindfulness, resilience, intrinsic motivation, integrity and hope. Developing these skills will help your child lead a happier, more successful life. Learn more on the umbrella of emotional wellbeing on our website here: http://www.umbrellaproject.co/video/

You are invited to follow along with your child’s learning journey for each new skill by subscribing to our weekly newsletter (details below) where we will provide information, stories, challenges and tips about fostering the skill your child is focusing on in class. Caregivers have a powerful impact on childhood wellbeing and your participation will help to deepen your child’s understanding of these important skills.

Dear Parents,

I would like to personally invite you to join me in making a difference in the lives of the children at St. Boniface Elementary School by supporting us in the upcoming Indigo Adopt a School program!

https://adoptaschool.indigo.ca/eng/schools/1669

There are three ways that our community can support our school online at adoptaschool.indigo.ca:

  1. Book Bonus: For every two books you donate to our school online, the Love of Reading Foundation will donate a bonus book, up to 100 books!*
  2. Tell a Story, Give a Story: Every time you post a story to our Adopt a School profile, the Love of Reading Foundation will donate one book in support of our school library, up to 20 books!
  3. Adopt a School Story Contest: “Heart” your favourite story to help a school for a chance to win* big! The five most-loved stories in each province will be entered in a random draw for a chance to win a $2,500 Indigo eGiftcard to purchase books for their adopted school. The remaining four top “hearted” schools in each province will win a $500 Indigo eGiftcard to purchase books! Choose wisely because you only get one shot to “Heart” a story!

Please note that 100% of all online donations directed to our school will go towards supporting our students and school library! However, our school has not been adopted by an Indigo, Chapters or Coles store this year, so donations made in-store will not go to our school.

Our school is going to receive every dollar raised to support our library and a 30% discount off books when we shop at Indigo, Chapters and Coles using program donations.

As you may know, our current annual library budget is $1500, which is $8-9 per student. Through the Adopt a School program, we are hoping raise enough money to put one new book in the hands of each and every one of our students!

Please visit adoptaschool.indigo.ca from September 15 to October 7 to show your support for our library! I look forward to surprising the staff and children at St. Boniface Elementary School with all the new library books this year!

Sincerely,

Miss Lance

Library Technician
