We want to show Jesus’ love and bless our neighbors. To show kindness to our neighbours and to thank them for their patience when we run around the blocks or park in front of their houses, we will spend 30 minutes as a whole school cleaning the neighbourhood. On Wednesday, September 27, 2017 the whole school will descend upon the neighbourhood as buddy classes. Each pair of classes will be assigned a particular block or lane to clean. To ensure safety, the children will be supplied with gloves and will be monitored by teachers, classroom aids and educational assistants. To foster school spirit, children are asked to dress in earth colours (green and brown) and pack a litterless lunch.
In preparation of this special event, please talk with your child about how we can serve others and how we can care for God’s creation by cleaning up our environment.
