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

Remembrance Day Assembly Postponed

posted Nov 11, 2019, 7:35 AM by Helen Provost

Dear Limehouse Families,

We have decided to postpone our Remembrance Day Assembly until tomorrow at 1:20pm. In efforts to continually honour the importance and significance of today, the school will still be participating in a moment of silence and flying the Canadian flag at half mast. 

The decision to reschedule the assembly is to allow students the opportunity to fulfill their commitments to the ceremony. They have been rehearsing for weeks in preparation for today and unfortunately many are absent due to tricky road conditions and busses being cancelled. We hope to teach our students that we can still follow through on our commitment towards remembering and showing respect, collectively.  We apologize for any disappointment this causes as we know some families were planning to join our ceremony.

We thank you for understanding,

Signed in appreciation,

G. Echeverria Valentine

Halloween Parade

posted Oct 28, 2019, 11:57 AM by Helen Provost

Dear Limehouse Families,  

Our school has traditionally offered a Halloween Parade to celebrate the event with the children. We will once again invite students to participate in a parade on Thursday, October 31st, immediately after announcements beginning at 8:45am.  

On that day, families are invited to send their children with their costumes for the parade or have their child dress in orange and/or black. Please note your child's participation is completely optional and we will ensure to plan for an alternate activity at your request, if preferred.  

If your child is coming to school in their costume we ask that you kindly send a change of clothing so that they can resume their normal school activities once the parade is over. This will help keep their costume intact and prevent tripping/injury during recess play.  

Families are invited to take pictures however, we'd ask that you avoid sharing these on social media as we have some parents/guardians that do not approve of having their child's photo on any social media platforms. The parade starts in the hallway and ends in the gym. We anticipate an end time of 9:15am.  

We look forward to seeing those that can make it!  

Sincerely,  

Ms. Echeverria Valentine, Principal
