Play days a success

no frillsA big thanks to the staff, parent volunteers and to Jeff, Rose and Herb’s No Frills for helping to make the recent play days a success for our students. No Frills generously donated the watermelons to give our children a refreshing treat.

Food drive: last call!

Last chance to fill up the food bank bin for the SAB Food Drive!

Thanks to generous donations so far, the box is almost full.

As you shop and prep for the last week of school lunches, think about picking up something extra and dropping it off into the bin on Monday.

Slo-pitch a success!

A big thanks to Royal York Baseball League and Home Run Sports for generously donating equipment so that SAB Grade 4 and 5 students could play slo-pitch for the first time ever!
boys slowpitch

The boys’ team had 14 players on it. They played a tournament at Rosethorn Junior School May 25th. After losing their first game 14-0, they didn’t lose another that day, winning the tournament against 4 other teams! They then won their quarter-final game vs Gracedale, advancing to the conference semi finals. They eventually lost 6-4 in the semi finals against a strong Millwood team.

girls slopitch

The girls were a large, enthusiastic team of 18 players, with many playing softball for the first time. They had a great time practicing and learning the game. They competed in their tournament on May 28th at Rosethorn, improving throughout the day and securing a tie and a win. They showed a great attitude and exemplary sportsmanship!

 

 

 

ColorCyle it!

As you’re cleaning out pencil cases and craft areas, be sure to set aside used markers and send them into school with your children for an innovative recycling program. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – devised to turn used markers into energy!

The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!

The Drop-off box is located outside the main office for your child to deposit the markers. It will be there until the end of the school year and back again in September, for any markers used up over the summer.

Thank you in advance for participating. We are proud that SAB is an eco-school!

Have a say and help out!

Come out to the last council meeting of this school year, especially if you’re interested in hearing from a new potential lunch vendor. Join us this evening, June 11, at 6:30 p.m. in the staff lounge. Child-minding is available in the gym.

Also, if you have a criminal record check completed and on file with the school, please schedule some time to help with the play days for Grades 1-5 this Friday, June 15, or for the FDK one on June 19.  For the latter, we need four volunteers to help cook hot dogs, cut watermelon and serve. Email sabschoolcouncil@gmail.com to sign up.unknown

Teacher appreciation day – June 11

On June 11th, teach your children about gratitude by letting them see you personally thank teachers in their classrooms! We are seeking volunteers to bring in baked goods and drop them off at the office that morning. We also need volunteers to bring the treats to teachers between drop-off and first recess.

Please email sabschoolcouncil@gmail.com if you can help.

Feeling hungry?

So many families in our communities are hungry so we decided to try to teach our kids about giving back by collecting non-perishable food items at SAB. This is the last week to drop off items in the big donation bin in the hallway by the main office. According to Food Banks Canada, more than one-third of the 850,000 Canadians who use food banks each month are children and youth. Visit www.dailybread.ca/most-needed/ for ideas on what you can bring.

Come out tonight!

Come out to the School Council meeting this evening at 6:30 p.m. in the staff lounge!

It’s not too late in the school year to hear updates from the principal and learn about Council initiatives and activities. We are especially looking for new volunteers as many of our council members have children graduating this year and will no longer be running events at the school.

Find out how you can help, especially with the Winter Bazaar next year, our biggest fundraiser! We need as many hands on deck as possible.

Check out the agenda online.

Child-minding is available in the gym. hand5
