Advent 2017

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, shampoo, soap, 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

Grade 1: disposable razors (packaged), shaving cream

Grade 2: deodorant, shampoo (large sizes, not samples)

Grade 3: adult mittens, adult gloves, adult toques

Grade 4: facial wipes  and travel size kleenex

Grade 5: warm socks for adults

Grade 6: soap, body wash, wash cloths

We look forward to sharing this activity with your child.
