Advent 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Advent… a time for us to wait and prepare to receive God’s greatest gift - his Son, Jesus.

To help us experience the loving act of sharing and giving, the students are invited to collect items to donate to the Shepherds of Good Hope.

This is an opportunity for the students to be made aware that there are many people in our community who are less fortunate and in need of our help. At this time of year, there are many items the Shepherds need to help the people who are staying at the shelter.

This year, the students are invited to donate new items such as: personal care items (razors, shaving cream), hair brushes, mittens and socks. Each grade will be responsible for specific items, but all donations are welcome. See the list below for the items per grade. We ask that all donations be made by Monday, December 18th.  The items will be picked up at the school and brought to the shelter.

Kindergarten: hair brushes, combs, pillow cases

Grade 1: disposable razors (packaged), shaving cream, pillow cases

Grade 2: adult toques, adult neck warmers, pillow cases

Grade 3: adult mittens, adult gloves, pillow cases

Grade 4: facial wipes  and travel size kleenex, pillow cases

Grade 5: warm socks for adults, balaclava for adults, pillow cases

Grade 6: any linens, used or new adult clothing, pillow cases

We look forward to sharing this activity with your child.
