Fundraising
The Mom’s Pantry/Shelmerdines fundraiser went very well. Thank you to everyone who
helped out.
                                              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!


Fun Lunch
                    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/
eligible.asp.
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.



Lunch Program
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.




Volunteers
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.
