If you have some of the following items that you are not using, we would gladly take them off your hands: - some wheels and attachments for wheels so they can make cars - Flexible lego strips so we can build bridges and roads - Lego of various shapes and sizes If you are able to donate any of these items, you can drop them off in the office. </p><p>KNITTING CLUB DONATIONS WANTED: Our Knitting Club is looking for additional tools and supplies. We would appreciate the donation of new or used straight or circular knitting needles sizes 4.5 to 6.0 mm in diameter. Our students can manage short needles better than long ones. If you would like to donate yarn, the best for teaching new knitters is smooth acrylic yarn which says on the label needle sizes 4.5 to 6.0 mm are recommended for the yarn. Very thin or fuzzy yarns are difficult for learning knitters to manage. The photo below shows examples of the style of yarn we could most use. If you have unused yarn at home, we would love to put it to good use.​</p>

Unfortunately, we have had some items go missing recently, and using a lock is the best way to ensure the security of bikes and scooters. Our community police officer from South Simcoe Police has been made aware of this issue. </p><p>BUCKLE UP – School staff have noticed that some children are not wearing seat belts when they are in a vehicle within our parking lot. Periodically, we have By-Law Officers and South Simcoe Police Officers assisting with traffic issues at our school – children not wearing seat belts could result in receiving a ticket with a hefty fine. More importantly, wearing seatbelts ensures our children’s safety.
