Bob’s Friday Update – April 1, 2022

Thank you to everyone who supported our Purple Day for Epilepsy Awareness Campaign.  We raised $531.48 for the Peterborough Epilepsy Foundation!  Thank you to Ms. Ganz’s class for organizing this fundraiser.

Food Drive!

The Bobcaygeon PS Social Justice Team is joining forces with Boyer Ford Lincoln to drive in loads of food for our local Food Bank.  Our junior and intermediate students will be delivering empty bags and information to homes in Bobcaygeon next week.  They will come back, with Boyer Ford Lincoln’s help, to pick up the filled bags of food on April 11th. If you don’t receive a bag, but would like to donate, please bring donation items to the school.  Our primary division will collect it, count it and create food pyramids with it!  We are looking for non-perishable food items, toiletries, cleaning items and baby items.  Please call the school if you have any questions.

We have three more clubs up and running right now.  Mme. Lepine and Mme. Clark are organizing our Yearbook Club.  Yearbooks will be for sale soon.  We anticipate the price will be $13. Mr. Coulter is running a boys’ basketball skill building club for our Grade 6-8 boys every Wednesday after school until 4:30. Ms. Gallagher and Ms. Finlay are facilitating our Alliance Club.

We are currently running a fundraiser with plantables.ca. You can buy seedlings for your garden. You determine what date you want them delivered and plantables will deliver them to your door!  Bobcaygeon PS receives a portion of the proceeds which we will use to buy technology and equipment for our students. Check out plantables.ca and use the code bpssmartyplants. The deadline to order is May 31st,
