Halloween Dance-a-Thon

halloween-party-1As part of a school-wide spirit day on October 31st, all students will have an opportunity to participate in a Halloween Dance-a-Thon in the school’s gym.

The dance will be one station that students go to on October 31st. All students (JK/SK – grade 6) will participate in the dance, whether pledges are collected or not.

The dance will feature a professional DJ with a spectacular sound, music and light show. Council will be handing out Freezies and reflectors to all children! All parents/grandparents are welcome to come attend and enjoy the dance. Feel free to dress up!

As noted on the pledge form (which will be sent home with your child soon), the dance is also used to raise money for the School Council. This year, all money raised will be allocated to sports equipment for the school.

Prizes for top pledge earners:

  • Grand prize: a pair of Ottawa Senators hockey tickets;
  • 2nd place: four tickets to an Ottawa 67’s hockey game!
  • 3rd place: a special prize!

All students returning the pledge sheet and/or the pumpkin coloring sheet (going home soon as well!) will also be entered into our draws to win lots of great prizes!

Please Note: if you wish to donate a prize to be used for the draws, please drop it off at the school’s front office, labelled “for School Council” or email our chair, conniedangelo@yahoo.com. Donations of sporting events tickets, gift passes/gift cards, arts and crafts (new/gently used), toys (new/gently used) are all welcome and will be used for our draws!

Volunteers needed:

Parent/grandparent/high school student volunteers are needed who can help decorate the gymnasium (October 28th, 7:30 pm.), and take down decorations after the event (October 31st, 2:00 p.m.). Please email our chair – conniedangelo@yahoo.com if you can help out.

Message from Thomas:

This is a dire need in a volatile country! Thank you Ottawa City family for helping to shed a light of HOPE in the darkest of places. Through these gifts and the philosophy of “The Beautiful Game” we can band together those who are being pulled away from their communities. Thank you and I can’t wait to update you on the smiles these generous jerseys and cleats will bring to many children in this gang torn environment. 

Thank you for your support.
