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

Battle of the Books 2017

posted Mar 7, 2017, 12:11 PM by Helen Provost

Our 2017 Battle of the Books Team has been working hard in preparation for the Battle on Wednesday March 29th at the Halton Hills Public Library!

Battle of the Books is a fun, free and educational program that all schools in Halton Hills are invited to attend. It is a school-day event where teams of students come to the Georgetown Library to play in a “quiz show” kind of game. Teams are asked to answer questions based on the plots and characters of familiar stories. This program is an excellent way to promote reading and it encourages kids to demonstrate their understanding of a variety of literary texts. Our team is made up of three students from Grade 3, Grade 4 and Grade 5. The following students are representing Limehouse this year:  Grade 3: Andrew S., Ethan M., and Leo N. Grade 4: Olivia B., Thea B., Callie A and Grade 5's: Max B., Evangelina B, and Saioni B. Wish us luck on March 29th!
