  1. School Council Update

The Lamontagne chocolate fundraiser is underway.  Thank you so much for your efforts to support our school.  There will be a School Council representative available each day at second break so students can return the funds raised once the box is sold.  Students can also pick up an additional box at second break if they wish to continue selling.

Thanks so much to all the Sandhills families that came out Thursday evening to the family dance.  It was great fun for everyone.  School Council is happy to report it was our most successful fundraising dance yet – over $1000 was raised to support the school.

Are you already walking to school with your children?  Are you interested in helping our Walking School Bus grow?  Parents interested in learning more about becoming a volunteer walker are invited to contact Mr. Ernst for more information at tom_ernst@wrdsb.ca . This is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbours and serve the wonderful Sandhills community.
