October is just around the corner – another busy month ahead!
Its time to plan for Fall’s most ghoulish night….In preparation for Halloween (plus a DL Spirit Event details TBA) please mark Wednesday, October 4th in your calendar. The Grade 7 Parents + Students invite you to the MPR from 2:00-4:00 pm to search through tables of gently used Halloween costumes to find your perfect disguise.
Its easy! Trade an old costume for a new one OR simply donate a twoonie and take a costume home with you.
MPR doors will be open at 2 pm for parents, grandparents or caregivers to come by and take a peek. Then at 3 pm bring your child by the MPR and make your selection.
A huge thank you to Jasmine Barry for organizing this Costume Swap the past 2 years. Volunteers are needed to help set up costumes, assist children with sizes & styles and clean up – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can offer some time 🙂
We are working with Obsession Bikes to collect “Previously Loved” bicycles that Obsession will fix up and give to kids (approx age 5 to teens) that are less fortunate at Christmas time. They work alongside the Family Services of the North Shore.
We are looking for bikes that have a wheel size of 12,16, 20, 24 and 26 inches. Bikes need to be relatively free of rust and ideally have been stored in a covered space.
We are collecting bikes that fit this description on or before Thursday, October 12th.
Please email Kerry Smith or call 604 971 4278 if you have a bike you would like to donate. I can hold onto them until October 12th when we hand them over to James Wilson of Obsession Bikes.
