2. Operation Christmas Child:
The Missions Team is organizing the Shoe Box campaign for Operation Christmas Child. Boxes are
available from Mrs. Buist, Erin Slaa, Regan Veenendaal, Ellen Cavers, Alina van Goor and Marjorie
Buist. The deadline is the week of November 16. Please have your boxes by this date.

Please be aware of the following important details:
    1. A donation of $7.00 per box is required. NO CASH PLEASE. Write a cheque payable to
       Samaritan's Purse. If you are preparing more than one shoebox gift, please make one combined
       donation. You may also pay online. Go to the website given below and follow the links. Print a
       receipt and include it in the box.
    2. Please don't wrap the boxes. We need to check them. Place a rubber band around each shoebox
       to secure the lid.
    3. Do NOT include toothpastes, liquids -shampoo, gels, paint, cream, lip balm, liquid glue (due to
       customs regulations).
Check the pamphlet for further information or visit www.samaritanspurse.ca/occ Thank you for your
support.

3. We will have a MUFU collection on Tuesday, October 27. (The collection we had earlier this month
was for the month of September). We collected $51.20 which is not enough to meet our monthly
commitment. We would like all students to remember to bring a donation for MUFU. The Missions
Team.

4.     Wanted: Leftover yarn, string, and fabric pieces. The supply has depleted at school and the
elementary staff would like to have some on hand for art classes. If you have some and would like to
donate it to the school, please drop it off at the office or to Miss Van Doornik‟s Grade 3 classroom.
5. Proof Pictures went home with the students last week Lifetouch is asking that the proof order
envelopes be returned to the school by WEDNESDAY, OCT. 21.

6. A Request from I.C.S. to the Supporting Community: For different events that happen at Grace
Church during school hours, it would be appreciated if everyone (as much as possible) could park their
vehicles in the parking lot along Rougeau Ave. This is not only to provide students with a “little more”
playing space, but also to ensure that vehicles which are parked there do not receive unnecessary “bumps
and bruises”. Thanks for your cooperation.

7. On Friday, October 23, 2009 the teachers will be spending the day at Special Area Group (SAG)
workshops; no school for students … maybe a good time to catch up on some assignments☺.

                                Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless;
                                maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
                                         Rescue the weak and needy;
                          deliver them from the hand of the wicked. (Psalm 82:3-4)
8. The current 40 Days for Life (Sept. 23rd – Nov 1st) gives us the chance to do just that, as in over 200
cities across North America, caring Christians peacefully protest against the brutal reality of the murder
of the unborn by holding up pro-life signs in front of hospitals and clinics that commit abortions.
In Winnipeg, the vigil at the Women‟s Hospital on Notre Dame Avenue will continue until November
1st, going from 8am – 8pm each day. Visit www.40daysforlife.com/winnipeg to register,

11. NOTE THE CHANGE!! Hockey season is almost here!! Saturday morning hockey for children
in Kindergarten to grade 8 will be starting again soon. We will be alternating weeks between K-4 and
grade 5-9. Hopefully this will allow everyone to have enough „elbow room‟ on the ice. Everyone playing
is expected to wear full equipment including face shields and neck guards to prevent as many accidents
as possible!
Fees for this year are as follows: One child playing $70, two or more children $110. Please make your
cheques payable to Mike Kuik with „Hockey Dues‟ on the memo line. Dues can be given to either me,
Ryan Veldman, Alan Dewitt or Carl Raap. Please pay as soon as possible so we will have funds to pay
for the ice rental.
Dates are as follows: Grade 5-9: Oct 3,17,31 Nov 14,28         Dec 12   Jan 02,23 Feb 6,20 Mar 6

NEWS FROM THE SPORTS CORNER:
The Grade 7 and 8 boys and girls volleyball teams were in a tournament this past weekend in Steinbach.
Considering it was their first game action of the year, both teams did quite well. The boys won one set
over the course of the tournament, and the girls won two sets.
The high school volleyball teams are continuing with their season with more games over the next two
weeks. The Varsity boys won their first league game last Wednesday, while the varsity girls won their
second league game, also on Wednesday.
The x-country season is almost over. The junior high runners completed their season at the Athletics
Manitoba school race last week Thursday, while the high school runners will complete their season by
running in the x-country provincial championships at Spruce Woods Provincial Park on Wednesday.

Junior Cross Country . . .
The Junior cross country team had their final race of the season at Harborview on Thursday October 15.
Because this event is hosted by Athletics Manitoba, it was the largest race they competed in so far. All
the athletes ran a 2 km race, competing only against their grade level.
Grade 6 girls-Jessica 9:14; Bethani 10:00; Julie 10:18; Eden 10:20
Grade 6 boys- Kevin 9:24; Jon 9:50; Michael 10:22
Grade 7- Emily 9:07
Grade 8- Shayna 8:50; Stephanie 9:05
Thanks to all the parents and siblings who came out to support the team this season.

High School Cross Country . . .
The high school cross country runners competed in their third event of the season at La Barrière Park
(Oct. 7th). Megan and Scott did not run the race as they were out of town. After raining for most of the
morning, the wind picked up in the afternoon and it was a fairly cold run. We checked out the course
when we arrived there, and it was muddy in places‹nothing like a little challenge to make the race
interesting. Considering that it was quite cold and windy, I didn¹t thing that the guys would improve on
their previous week‟s time. They all decided to prove me wrong. Well done, everyone.

Results are as follows:
Nick Mostert: 22:14 (4:26/km)
Rudy vanGoor: 23:51 (4:46/km)
Jake Cavers: 24:41 (4:56/km)
Eric Buist: 25:53 (5:11/km)

The Harbourview School Team Championships (known now as the Chris McCubbins Provincial Cross
Country Championships) were held on Thursday, Oct. 15 as well. All grades 6-12 competed. Results for
the high school runners are below:
Megan Toet 16:12 (5:24/km) 7th place
The guys below all competed as a grade 12 team.
Nick Mostert (gr9) 20:27 (4:05/km) 14th place
Scott Nienhuis (gr11) 22:28 (4:30/km) 24th place
Jake Cavers (gr12) 23:05 (4:37/km) 27th place
Eric Buist (gr12) 23:58 (4:48/km) 29th place

All the guys improved significantly over their previous week‟s race, and on a hilly course. Way to go,
everyone. Next week Wednesday, October 21st is the last race of the season. The provincials are going
to be in Spruce Woods this year. Find time to run this weekend as well. See you all on Monday, October
19th for practice after school.
