Toonie Tuesday, October 28
The SD #83 Me to We Student Leadership Committee Fundraiser is again attempting to raise $2 per SD #83 student and staff member. This goal would generate $12 000! SD #83 has adopted a village in Ghana where we have already helped build a classroom of a school. Funds are used to help build 4 key areas (education, alternative income, health care and water/sanitation). Funds are also used for local projects in our district. Thanks for your support!
Halloween, Friday Oct 31
Students may choose to dress up on Friday, please remember....

• Costumes can not be too scary (we don’t want to scare younger students). If unsure, discuss with Mr. Weeks prior to coming on the 31st.

• Costumes can not be inappropriate; must be respectful. (We still need to follow the dress code/school beliefs). If unsure, discuss with Mr. Weeks prior to coming on the 31st.

• No fake weapons at all.

• Keep the costumes simple. Students need to be able to do the day to day activities at school.

• Students need to be aware that costumes may tear, get wrecked or break. Please have a discussion with your child about this before they wear the costume to school. Parents may wish to have a simpler or even a different costume than the Halloween night costume.
