Junior students are hosting a bake sale on Wednesday, October 3rd to collect money to help our former head caretaker, Mr. Eric Guenther. Eric lost his home and personal belongings in the tornado that hit Dunrobin and was not able to salvage many things because of the rain that followed. Grade 4, 5 and 6 students and their families will be providing baked goods and sell them for $0.50 and $1 next Wednesday to the school community. Every class will have a chance to visit the bake sale.
We are also encouraging you to send non-perishable food items and hygiene products in order to help replenish the foodbanks in the area. We will collect items until Wednesday, October 3rd and deliver the goods on Thursday, October 4th.
