Save the Date- Valentines Day Dance-A-Thon

We are excited to announce that our Catholic School Council will support our school in having a Valentines Day Dance- A- Thon on Thursday February 13th 2020.

The funds raised from this event are used to support many initiatives which directly benefit our students.

The success of this fundraiser is built on the involvement of our parents. Our Dance a Thon committee will be working with our community partners to obtain prizes but relies on parent donations also.  Some examples of prizes that children look forward to are board games, movie certificates, craft supplies and gift cards (even the smallest denomination). If you or your family is affiliated with a local business,  we would greatly appreciate a donation on behalf of that business. All donations will be mentioned in school communication to show our gratitude. All prize donations can be sent directly to your child’s classroom teacher labelled for Dance a Thon no later than February 7th. We thank you in advance for the continued support and please watch for further information regarding this event as we get closer to Dance a Thon day.

Please see attached further information that was sent home on Friday, January 24th 2020 (Dance-a-thon 2020)

Harriet Tubman Presentations

With grateful hearts we thank Leslie McCurdy for her energy and performances of “The Spirit of Harriet Tubman and Harriet is my Hero” for all our students at St.Timothy.

Harriet Tubman is one of these individuals and we are fortunate to learn more about her life and legacy.
