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

Dear Limehouse Families,

We have decided to change the date of our Limehouse Earth Day. The new date is Tuesday April 24th. At 2:00 on the 24th we will be holding our Earth Day assembly followed by our annual playground clean up. We are hopeful that all the snow will be gone by then. 

Technically, Earth Day is EVERYDAY so wear your colourful clothing or a piece of clothing that has an Earth important message on it whenever you want! If you have something special that you want to wear just for our Limehouse Earth Day please save it until Tuesday.

Jump Rope for Heart

posted Mar 27, 2018, 4:29 PM by Helen Provost   [ updated Mar 27, 2018, 4:39 PM ]

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Limehouse is pleased to be holding a Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event on Friday, April 13th. All money raised will support Heart & Stroke in their mission to promote children’s health and fund vital heart and stroke research.

Jump Rope for Heart encourages kids to get active by skipping rope while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research. They also learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and giving back to their community. This year Heart & Stroke is striving to get 1 million kids jumping in close to 4,000 schools across Canada. Let’s be part of it! 

We need your help to reach our School fundraising goal of $7,000.

Please help support your child’s fundraising efforts by registering them online at jumpropeforheart.ca and send out donation request emails to friends, family and colleagues. Online fundraising is the quickest way to reach all of your contacts and online donors receive an automatic tax receipt. Plus, when students raise money online they can earn bonus prizes including a skipping rope, and gift cards from Chapters/Indigo, Canadian Tire, Mastermind Toys and Amazon.ca! 

Please visit jumpropeforheart.ca and start fundraising today!

Each student will be bringing home a pledge envelope if you prefer to collect donations in-person. Please ensure that their pledge envelope is returned on the day of their school’s Jump Event Day.

Thank you in advance for your support,

Sue MacFarlane, Teacher, Grade 3
Shari Keast, Teacher, Grade 5
