BOOK FAIR Nov. 25-29th

Our Fall Book Fair will take place during the Week of Nov. 25 – 29th. Students will have the chance to visit the Book Fair during the week and make a list of books they would like to purchase during their second visit to the Fair later in the week. We hope that parents will understand that reading is an important part of their child’s development and reading individually is a great way to encourage creativity and learning.

The Book Fair will be open during the evening of Nov. 28th during Parent-Teacher meetings for any parents who would like to stop by and take a look at what is available. Books make great Christmas gifts from Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, etc…

Help support our school library!!

Walk-a-Thon Nov. 29th

Students at Juniper Ridege have been given their Sponsor Sheets for the Fall Walk-a-Thon and should have already brought these home. We encourage all of our students to make an effort to get out there and find sponsors… talk to neighbours, relatives, family friends… anyone can sponsor you!

The deadline for bringing back Sponsor forms and money is Monday, Nov. 25th. Student’s names will be entered for draws and prizes based on the amount of funds they raise (see the Sponsor Form that was sent home).

The Walk-a-Thon itself will take place on Friday, November 29th in the afternoon session.
