Christmas Giving Project

Dear Family,

Every Christmas, we like to encourage our students (and families) to share the Christmas spirit of giving to those who have much less than we do. This year, we have chosen a project in Uganda for our focus. A group of young p eople from BC, organized by our school authority, is going to Uganda to help a school and improve conditions for students of the Batwa people. A pamphlet with more details is attached and will be coming home to you. Donations are tax deductible and receipts will be issued for amounts of twenty dollars or more. All funds collected for this will be applied directly to the project. Please consider helping these people.

For logistical reasons, we are only collecting monetary donations for this project. Donations must be brought to the school by Nov 21. In addition to the Uganda project, there are a few classes taking part in the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, so your child may also have information regarding that project.

Thank you in advance for your generosity in helping students around the world to have an opportunity to read.

Chetwynd Public Library Visits

We are excited for additional support of our school program from the Chetwynd Public Library this school year. Part of this support is to bring library books out to each student, according to their requests, typically on the 3rd Monday of every month. We recommend you have a conversation with your child about this program and the positive aspects of reading. You may also want to discuss what topics he/she has requested and talk about his/her interests. We do not plan to monitor the book choices of your child. We hope this program will be positive encouragement for your child to spend time reading.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
