Winter Coat and Boot Drive
EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 5th
Children at Second Street Junior Middle School in the Lakeshore and Royal York area are in need of CLEAN coats and boots.
Mr. Lowry, the principal at the school, is very appreciative of all our past and present efforts and would like to thank all LKS parents in advance. Donated items will be dropped off to Second Street Junior Middle School on Friday November 29, 2019.
Please drop off CLEAN and BAGGED coats and boots outside the front office.
Stonegate Holiday Hamper Program
The Stonegate holiday hamper drive is in full swing!
By now, parents should have received information from grade parents with a description of the family your child’s class is helping. We encourage you to talk to your kids about the families and their needs and we are so grateful for all the donations that have been coming in.
The deadline for donations is end-of-day on Wednesday December 4th. A friendly reminder that we cannot accept cash and we ask that all items are new.

Lost & Found Reminder
Soon we will gather the Lost and Found items and donate them to the Jean Tweed Centre. The Lost and Found continues to overflow with hoodies, lunch bags, water bottles and more. Please have your children check the cubby shelves and hooks on the south hallway of the school.
We are quickly approaching the holiday season and would like to invite our Grade 1 to 6 families to our Winter Concert on Thursday December 12 at 6:30 p.m.
All students are asked to be at school for 6:15 p.m. and you will be receiving more specific instructions from your child’s teacher as we get closer to the date.
We would also like to ask at this time for all guests to stay for the entire show. Our students and staff put a lot of effort into the concert and would like a full house when they hit the stage.
Thanks in advance and see you on December 12th!
