The Mom’s Pantry/Shelmerdines fundraiser went very well. Thank you to everyone who
Our first Think Recycle shipment of used print
cartridges and cellular phones made $43.05.
That means we have already had one tree
planted in our school’s name. And we just sent
out two more boxes! Keep sending in your used
print cartridges and cellular phones to be
recycled. The collection box is just inside the front doors of the school.
The next fundraiser is Alantra/Donelli Foods and local honey.
The order forms will be going home soon.
Glenlea Greenhouses order forms will be going home in
March and orders will be delivered to the school in May.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support!
The first Fun Lunch in November was a success. We made $628.01.
The second Fun Lunch is this Friday January 22.
There will be two more Fun Lunch Days later this year. Thank you to all
the volunteers who help out.
Campbell’s Soup Labels
In an effort to collect more soup labels for merchandise for the
school, we have started a classroom challenge. For the
months of January and February, collect your labels and give
them to your child to take to their classroom. The labels will be
counted during the first week in March and the classroom that
collects the most labels will win a prize.
For more information on eligible products, see the poster just
outside the school office, or visit www.labelsforeducation.ca/
Please note that labels from the United States are not eligible.

Parking Lot Safety
Parents are reminded to park their vehicles when picking up and
dropping off their children. Please do not use the parking lot exit
by the cross walk to enter the parking lot.
Be sure to drive slowly at all times. A child may step in front of
your vehicle without warning. Snow and ice make it difficult to
stop quickly. Always give children and others walking in the
parking lot the ‘right of way.’
If you would like to help with monitoring the safety of the parking
lot, call the school office at 889-6000.
Sansome School is always looking for Lunch Program Supervisors.
If you are able to help out as a substitute or as a full-time supervisor
as positions become available, call the school office at 889-6000.
Lost and Found
Is your child missing a piece of clothing? The Lost & Found bin is located behind the gym.
Thank you to all who have volunteered this school year. We appreciate your time and effort.
Allergy and Health Awareness
Cold and flu season is still upon us.
Be sure to wash your hands regularly.
If you have to cough or sneeze, do so
into your sleeve, not into your hands.
