Spruceland Traditional Elementary NEWS December 1, 2014 Volume 3 Issue 4 It’s December already!! Looking outside, it does look a little more like the season. Just another reminder to make sure your children are dressed warmly. Proper boots, hats, snow pants and jackets are required for students to play comfortably outside. Outdoor clothing does not have to be in school colours. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone; students, parents and staff for removing your outdoor shoes when entering the school. So far, our hallways have remained dry and we are so appreciative of your cooperation! Our Annual Christmas Giving Tree is now up. We have already started to decorate it with new gloves, scarves, and hats to donate to families in need. We will also be setting up our annual Christmas hamper, please feel free to bring non-perishable items. Thanks for your support! Thanks to everyone who supported our Craft Fair. What a success!! It was great to see the gym so full throughout the day and we heard lots of positive feedback from the crafters. If you didn’t read it on Facebook, the Jump Rope for Heart raised $4319.70. Wow!!
