Christmas Bake Sale - Baking is needed for the Christmas Bake Sale which will be held immediately following the Christmas Concert, Thursday, December 19. For those bringing baking for the Bake Sale, please have your baking to School the morning of Thursday, December 19, so that volunteers have time to prepare the trays.

Separate cheques should be made for the Milk Block, Hot Lunch Program, School Fees, etc. You may, however, make 1 cheque per family for each program.
