Dear Parents & Guardians,
The launch of the United Way Campaign at St. Clare took place yesterday. For the next 3 Fridays, students can donate a loonie or toonie to help those in need. Each Friday, there is a special event for students as stated in the letter that is posted on the St. Clare website (http://cla.ocsb.ca/). This Friday, Oct. 13th, we will be engaging in a Board Game Block. Here is the letter:
Sent to be the Good News
Give. Change A Life.
As you are aware, the United Way/Centraide of Ottawa-Carleton has launched its 2017 Campaign to support those in need in the Ottawa area. United Way/Centraide supports many programs in over 100 member agencies. This year, the staff and students of St. Clare school are called to make a conscious decision in taking an active part in the community by continuing to care for those in need. This supports our Board’s theme, “Sent to be the Good News.” We have designated three Fridays, October 13, 20 and 27, to raise money for our neighbours from the Ottawa area who are in need. Although we ask that students donate a loonie or a toonie for our special days, they can donate anything they can afford to participate in the activities outlined below. Students can do chores in order to earn money to donate to this cause.
You have touched the hearts of many people with your previous, generous support as seen with the Terry Fox walk and the Thanksgiving St. Vincent de Paul food drive. Please help us support United Way. Your contribution is most appreciated.
Here is the outline for the three days:
Friday, October 13th: Board Game Day
Bring a toonie and a board game to play during a block today!
No electronic games, please.
Friday, October 20th: Black & Orange Day and Movie Day
Bring a toonie and come to school in Black & Orange clothes.
Let’s enjoy a movie for this last afternoon before Halloween.
Friday, October 27th: Crazy Hair and/or Hat Day
Students can wear a funny hat and/or have crazy
hair all day for a loonie.
Thank you for your continued support of the United Way in our community of Ottawa-Carleton!
The staff of St. Clare
