Coupon Books—fundraising
Our coupon book fundraiser will end Wednesday, September 30th, 2009. The funds raised by the PAC are used to put books in our Library, send the students on field trips and help raise money for the purchase of equipment to benefit all students. Last year, approximately $2,000 was raised through coupon book sales which helped send all of our kids on field trips and more!

restaurants, travel, shopping and more! Books can also be ordered online for other provinces with our school still receiving credit. Just follow the instructions in your envelope. Simply by using the 4 Safeway coupons, the Values Book is paid for! Remember: We encourage all students to only sell to people they or their parents know. Collect payments at the time the orders are placed. Each child receives a gift for every book sold. “Out of town books” are also available to order.

Please make cheques payable to “Cliff Drive PAC”. All orders are due back by Wednesday, September 30th, 2009.

Thank you for supporting Cliff Drive students!

“All orders are due back by Wednesday, September 30th.”

Emergency Preparedness at Home—
Over the next few newsletters, we will be including a 26 week guide to prepare your family for any emergency at home. Putting together everything you need to keep your family safe in an emergency can be an overwhelming job, but this step by step plan breaks it down into smaller, easier tasks. Keep in mind that 56th St. and Hwy 17 are both Disaster Response Routes that most of us will not be allowed to use. Therefore, we will have to remain at home so make sure you have enough supplies to last each member of your family for at least three days. WEEK #4 - CANNED MEAT & DRIED FRUIT: Stock your kit with several varieties of canned mean and dried fruit. Include a manual can opener. WEEK #5 - PORTABLE RADIO & EXTRA BATTERIES: Get a portable radio and extra batteries for your emergency kit. WEEK #6 - LEARN ABOUT HAZARDS: Find out what the hazards are in your community and do a home hazard hunt to make your home safer. Secure appliances and heavy furniture, and move beds away from heavy mirrors and windows.
