New frontiers for new learning

A Season for Giving….

Dear Families,

As we near the winter holiday break, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support this year, and wish you a happy and safe holiday season.   Our School Council, Student Council, Positive Climates for Learning Committee and ELL team are working hard to collect donations and raise money for families in need.

There are several initiatives happening over the next few weeks to support both the school and our local families.  Our current initiatives include:

Vaughan Food Drive- bring any canned or non-perishable items to school from now until December 17

Toy Drive – Drop off a new, unwrapped toy to the bins in front of our office- final day is December 15

Hat and Mitten Tree- Bring in a new winter hat, mittens or gloves for a local shelter until December 17

Danceathon- This is our major fundraiser to support initiatives at Lorna Jackson.  Money collected goes to support literacy, numeracy and technology resources at our school.  For every $2 donated, students receive a ticket to enter for a draw for many exciting prizes.  Danceathon will be the morning of December 12.

Assembly- Our final good news assembly for 2014 will take place on December 19th at 1:45.  The theme will be Festival of Lights- please join us in the school gym.

We thank you for your donations and for making Lorna Jackson a home away from home.



M.Bongard and E. Lau, on behalf of the Lorna Jackson team
