Passion Project Fair

This year, on Wednesday, March 8, we will be hosting a Passion Project Fair.  Students are invited to share with our school community, during the day and evening (5:30 – 7:00 pm), an area of interest they may have.  Students are asked to bring in their project to share the learning they did and the reason why it interests them so much.   We look forward to seeing the unique ways God has gifted each student!

Scholastic Book Fair

Our school’s Scholastic Book Fair is coming up Monday, March 6 to Wednesday, March 8 after school from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm. We will also be selling books during our Passion Project Fair on Wednesday, March 8 from 5:30 – 6:45 pm.

Each classroom will also have a wish list. We want to encourage families to add new books to your child’s classroom. Each teacher will have a “book wish list” with identified titles of books from the book fair that they believe would make great additions to their classroom libraries. Ask your student’s teacher for their wish list for the books they are excited about! Teacher wish lists will also be available at the cashier.

For every transaction, you can fill out a ballot and enter into a draw to win $25 in books for your family and another $25 in books for your child’s classroom. We are also looking for a few parent volunteers to help us with set-up after school on Monday, March 6 and take down on Thursday, March 9, after school. If you can help with this, please contact Mrs.Hussey at khussey@hopelcs.ca.
