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,

Orange Shirt Day

posted Sep 24, 2018, 12:49 PM by Helen Provost

This year our Grade 5 students have started a Spirit and Global Awareness Day(s) committee. One of the first days selected by the committee is Orange Shirt Day. They wish to join other schools in Halton in efforts to bring more awareness to this day. The Halton District School Board is showing their support for Orange Shirt Day this Friday Sept. 28th. Our teachers and staff at Limehouse will be joining in to share in the message that “every child matters”, and remembering those impacted by residential schools. This is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools, and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for the generations of children to come.

The committee would like you to know that this Friday the LPS staff will be wearing an orange shirt to bring awareness to our school and community. You will also see the orange colour in our front foyer. Students and families are also invited to participate. Wearing anything orange will do. Since it is picture day and families may already have special clothing selected for the school photo, an accessory/item with orange on it (e.g., hat, scarf, shoe lace, socks), or something that can easily be removed, will work just fine.

Signed,

Mrs. Girard Gregori and the Spirit Day Committee

Open House rescheduled - New date to be announced shortly

posted Sep 14, 2018, 12:46 PM by Christine Caughill

We are in need of rescheduling our Open House evening initially schedule for September 20th, 2018. It will need to be rescheduled for a mid-October date. This will allow time for the construction work to be completed and we'll have more flexibility with parking. 

The confirmation of a new date will be sent out shortly. As soon as we hear an expected completion date, a notice will be sent home.

We greatly appreciate all of your patience and understanding.

Sincerely,

Information for families who pick up and drop off their children

posted Sep 11, 2018, 8:21 AM by Christine Caughill

Dear Limehouse families,

We are in need of your assistance for the next two days. Due to the construction occurring in front of the school, the lower parking lot will be unavailable for families picking up and dropping off their children for the next two days. If you plan to pick up and drop off your child(ren) today and tomorrow, we would ask you to park in the upper parking lot and/or on the blacktop behind the school when picking up and/or dropping off.


At pick-up time, you will be able to pick up your children from the gym by 3:00pm.  Teachers and staff will be in the gym to assist you. In the morning, you can drop off your children with our morning supervisors.  


We hope to have the lower parking available to families by Thursday Sept. 13th.  


We thank you for your patience, understanding and help with this change to ensure our students' safety.  


Signed,

The Office and Mrs. Caughill

Information for students who walk to school

posted Aug 31, 2018, 11:42 AM by Christine Caughill

Dear Limehouse Families,

If your child(ren) is walking to and from school, we'd ask that if at all possible that you make arrangements to have them accompanied by an adult as they walk. The construction work will be paused during arrival and dismissal times however receiving adult support while the roads are still under construction, will help with ensuring their safety. Additionally, there will also be staff supervising them as they arrive and are being dismissed.

Again, we thank you for your patience and understanding and for your help with our students' safety.

Student Drop-off for Tuesday September 4th

posted Aug 31, 2018, 9:41 AM by Christine Caughill


Due to the construction occurring in front of the school, there will be limited parking available for families who wish to drop their child(ren) off on Tuesday morning. If you are planning to park your vehicle, we'd ask that everyone work towards leaving the school by 8:50am so the construction can re-start for 9am.
The Town of Halton Hills is aware of our student drop-off and pick-up times and will pause the construction during those times.

Once students are dropped off via bus or car, they will be met by an adult and guided towards the black-top area where their teachers will be waiting for them. Kindergarten students will be met in the Kindergarten play-area. Primary and Junior aged students will be met at the back of the school.

There will be plenty of adults supporting for student safety. We'd ask that you let your child know to look for the adults wearing orange vests should they need any help.

We greatly appreciate your patience as we await for the finished product.
