Every Child. Every Chance. Every Day.

The leadership team has introduced a new challenge to the school! A Door Decorating Challenge for the season of winter. The reason we are introducing this is because we want to spread school spirit. Classes are so excited, they’re even using some of their wall space around the door! The doors must be done by Friday, December 13. The judging will take place on Monday, December 16. There will be 3 winners. Each winner will receive a pizza party after the holidays. The pizza party will be paid for by the parent council. The winners will be announced at the next character education assembly on Tuesday, December 17.
The Grade 8’s will be doing a bottle drive on Saturday, January 4th, 2014 to help fundraise for their trip to Quebec City. Please save those empties!
On Friday, December 6, 52 students signed up to attend a movie night in their pyjamas. Students enjoyed crafts, movies, popcorn and a drink.
The next movie night will be in February… Watch for details.
Students are welcome to write letters to Santa and drop them off in the labelled box in the office. Our hardworking mail carrier will be picking up these letters and delivering them to the North Pole in time for the special day!
Deadline for letters to Santa is December 10th.
Mapleview Heights’ Kids’ Club (Before & After Care Program) has had a busy month! We were very excited to make wreaths and write to Veterans for Remembrance Day. Members of the school age group worked very hard to write and choreograph their songs and had a special performance earlier this month as well. Special thanks to Kids’ Club members who helped to load donations from “Sno-vember” to be taken to the David Busby Centre. Keep up the good work!
At Mapleview Heights we are in the midst of our annual Christmas Cheer food drive from November 25th to December 13th. We are doing this so that all people in Barrie will be able to have a full table this Christmas season.
Please bring in canned food, non-perishable items, unwrapped presents and clothes. Canadian Tire money will also be accepted. Our goal is 4000 items!
Mapleview Heights raised $422.07 for the Royal Canadian Legion through poppy sales!
RAISE THE DOUGH
Another successful fundraising event! We sold 122 “Raise the Dough” specials and brought in $610.00 for the school.
Thank you to all those people who generously donated to the recent “SNO’VEMBER” campaign run by our Grade 3 students. We were able to provide much needed warm attire, blankets, food and other necessities to the David Busby Centre.
Hey Check out how we’re making the world more awsome!
