Friends Update

Christmas Dance Bake Sale
To make the upcoming Christmas Dance (Thursday Dec. 11, 2008) a bit more festive for the kids, we thought it would be nice to sell some Christmas baking. If anyone is interested in donating baked goods, or volunteering their time, please let us know. (If you had indicated on your volunteer form that you would like to help with the bake sale, we will be in contact). It would be appreciated if all baked goods could be brought in by Thursday morning (11th) so that we can organize them and wrap them with festive ribbon. As an allergy precaution, we ask that no nut products be used, and that a recipe card/ list of ingredients be included. Hopefully this will add a little Christmas Magic to the children's night. (Proceeds from the sale will be used towards the school's Anti-Bullying campaign).

The school is looking for individuals interested in helping/tutoring some students, particularly in Math. (Please Note: A criminal record check is required when working directly with students). For More information please contact the office.

Firefighter's Challenge
"Burning Down the House 2008" was held on November 25,2008. We would like to thank the 11 volunteers who gave their time to help with the set up and/or running of the obstacle course during the day long event. Thank you as well to Mike Smith and the teachers on the Challenge committee (Alex Yaychuk, Lisa Cormier, Natalie Green, Michelle Skead, Corinne Gallagher and Sarah Jenkins) for the outstanding job they did organizing this event. We cannot forget to mention Marie Lafford with Tim Horton's Human Resource Department for organizing the donation of coffee and muffins from their Main Street Store. Finally, Thank you to Jim McLeod and the Firefighters for making this day so special for our NMS community.

Parent-Teacher Interview Munchie Table
During the November 19th and 20th Parent Teacher Interviews, we were fortunate to have 18 volunteers send in food items for our "Munchie" Table. Thank you for helping to make the Feast such a positive experience for our teachers. They truly appreciated your kindness and hard work, and asked us to pass along their "Thank You" as well.
