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!

Scholastic Book Fair - Wed. Dec. 13th, Thur. Dec. 14, Mon. Dec. 19th, and Tues. Dec. 20th.
The Scholastic Book Fair will be at our school next week. It will be open several periods a day giving all classes the opportunity to come down and browse and make purchases. It will also be open Tuesday December 20th from 5:00 pm until the start of the Holiday Concert. This is a great place to do some holiday shopping and give back to our school! A Book Fair pamphlet has gone home with each student and on the back of it there is a chance for a student to win $25 in books for their home library and $25 for their classroom library. The draw will be made Monday December 19th in the afternoon, so the ballot must be returned before that time for a chance to win. Thank you for supporting Limehouse Library!
On Tuesday December 6, 2016, Grade 2, 3, and 5 classes will be heading to Crawford Lake Conservation Area to take part in exciting learning experiences to discover more about Celebrations of the First Nations people and Life in a Longhouse. This is a great hands-on learning experience for our students and will help support the Social Studies curriculum in Grade 2, 3, and 5. It should be a great day.
Get into the Fall spirit by decorating a pumpkin of your favourite book character. It is easy and fun for everyone!
Let your creativity soar.
Paint it, dress it, accessorize it, but NO carving! (Carved pumpkins rot quickly).
Drop off your pumpkin book characters anytime between October 17th - October 29th. We will display them in our Library and our judges will vote for their favourite pumpkin on Oct. 31st.
Many Limehouse students have participated in a very effective math strategy that builds flexible thinking and deeper understanding of numbers. This activity is called a Number Talk.
In this video clip, the Stanford Professor Jo Boaler helps to explain the purpose and practice behind a Number Talk.
