Indigo Adopt a School Fundraiser



The staff at Limehouse Public School would like to invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of our children here at our school by supporting us in the upcoming Indigo Adopt a School program. From September 18 – October 9, 2016 we are excited to have been adopted by Indigo Spirit Georgetown Marketplace. This means that our library will be the benefactor of their instore fundraising and our additional community support through the adoptaschool.indigo.ca online fundraising platform. There are two ways that our community can support our school online at adoptaschool.indigo.ca. Through Book Bonus or Tell a Story, Give a Story, the Foundation is matching your support up to 50 additional books for every participating school! This means, if you give 2 books to our school, the Foundation will add an extra book to your donation, up to 40 books! Or if you, Tell a Story, Give a Story for FREE the Foundation will match an additional book for each featured story, up to 10 books! That’s 50 extra books that could be added to our library! Through the Indigo Adopt a School program all fund raised go directly to that participating school and all participating schools receive a 30% discount off books when they shop at Indigo, Chapters and Coles. Using the funds received through the program we are hoping to support the passion for literacy at our school.  Please visit adoptaschool.indigo.ca from September 18 to October 9, 2016 to show your support for our library! I look forward to surprising the staff and children at Limehouse Public School with all the new library books this year!

Sincerely,

Helen Provost

Reminder About Class Building For The 2018/2019 School Year

posted May 7, 2018, 4:52 PM by Gabriela Echeverria   [ updated May 7, 2018, 5:03 PM ]

Dear Limehouse Families,

Please notify the office if your family plans to move out of the Limehouse area before the school year begins in September, or if you know that your child(ren) will not be returning to Limehouse next year. It is also advisable to notify your child’s new school of your intention to register them, as they will soon be engaged in building classes for the upcoming year as well.

One of the most significant tasks we will take over the next few weeks is building our classes for September 2018. We make every effort to balance classes and will spend many hours reviewing the learning profiles of our students. Our goal is to find the best placement for each student.
A number of factors will be considered in building classes such as:
• instructional needs
• learning styles
• social groupings

As parents/guardians, you also know your child(ren) from many perspectives and you may wish to provide us with additional information about the learning environment you feel would be suitable for your child(ren). Parents/guardians are invited to write the Principal outlining factors you feel should be considered in discussions about next year. Please avoid requesting specific teachers. Staffing changes can occur well into next September, and requests may not be honoured due to potential changes in the organization of classes.
Please send your input in the form of a letter or email, no later than this Friday May 11, 2018.
