Congratulations to all three École Fairview Basketball Teams for advancing to the GEDSB Basketball Championship Night that was held on Thursday, March 6th, 2014.
Both the Junior Co-Ed Basketball Team and Intermediate Girls' Team lost their games by 1 point.
The Intermediate Boys' Team won their Championship Gameby defeating Branlyn School.
Please remember that students are expected to arrive at school dressed for the weather (i.e., hat, scarf, gloves, snow pants, winter jacket). We monitor the "wind chill" closely and keep students in when the wind chill is minus 20 or less. Students can expect to be outside before and after school as well as the two twenty minute recesses if the weather permits.
Environment Canada has stated we are in for some cold weather this winter. Refer to the "Weather" link to the side for detailed weather reports and the "Bus" link for Transportation information. You can also visit the GEDSB's website (www.granderie.ca) for weather alerts.
SCHOOL COUNCIL’S LOTTERY CALENDAR
During the month of March School Council will be selling Calendar Raffle tickets. Information will be sent home. Daily prizes will be drawn over the month of April. Calendars will be sold by students and families for $5 each. When a ticket is drawn, it is returned to the barrel and can be drawn again and again giving those that bought a ticket many chances to win!!!
Prizes were generously donated by many local stores, restaurants and businesses and have an approximate total value of $2500.
We have a limited number that we are allowed to sell. Please return your Calendar order forms that were sent with each student. Watch for the arrival home of your requested amount on a first come first served basis. Due to our licensing requirements once tickets are assigned to your family, you will be completely responsible for them.
When a calendar is sold please tear off the purchaser’s information (which will be used for the draw) and return that along with the money in the envelope provided as often as you wish and by March 31st for entry into win for the full month of prizes in April.
All Calendar money and ticket stubs must be returned to the school no later than Monday, April 28th, 2014 and accounted for, reported on with respect to our license agreement.
