Uniform Exchange

A big THANK YOU to everyone that donated uniforms last week.  We had a great response and we really appreciate your donations!  Everything is sorted and separated and we look forward to seeing many of you come out on Tuesday October 21 from 3:30p-8p or Thursday, October 23 from 5p-8p to look through the pieces we have collected.  Remember that everything is free and there are no limits except on jumpers.  Please take whatever you have an immediate need for.  Due to a lack of storage, we can no longer accept donations until our next exchange. If you have any questions please contact Jamie Smeiles

Book Fair 

We would like to invite everyone to visit the book fair this week in the school gym.  All students will have an opportunity to shop during school hours and the book fair will be open on both Tuesday, October 21 and Thursday, October 23 during evening parent/teacher conferences for families to shop.  Parents may send in cash or check (made payable to St. Francis de Sales) in an envelope clearly marked with their child’s name and “book fair”.  Each child that buys a book will be entered into a raffle for a basket of books.  One entry per student, please.  Remember to check out the castle with the teacher wish-lists! Buying a book for your child’s classroom teacher would make a great Christmas gift! Please click here to follow the link to view our online book fair.

Ski Club  

Do you enjoy skiing or want to learn?  If yes, then St. Francis de Sales Ski Club is for you.  The group skis on Monday nights and anyone 8 years and older, including parents and siblings, can ski. Each ski package includes 5 lessons, skiing every Monday night from the first Monday in January through the end of the season at Brandywine, and 4 additional passes for $10 ski to either Boston Mills or Brandywine.  It is a really great value and equipment can be included in the pass.  A new loadable club credit card will make buying snacks a breeze.  If everyone signs up by November 21, passes will be available for Christmas break - that means club members can ski over Christmas for just $10 dollars!
