1. FHCI puts the spotlight on anti-bullying initiatives
We will be having two different assemblies on Monday at the beginning of the day. Each assembly will have anti-bullying initiatives as its focus. The content of the assemblies has been designed for two specific groups—after morning attendance, the Grade 9 students will meet together in the gym while Grade 10-12 students will meet in the auditorium. Please take some time to discuss the content of the assembly with your child when you are together this week. The more opportunities students have to talk about bullying issues, the better they will be able to handle those issues if or when they arise.
Here is the schedule for Monday to accommodate the assembly presentations.
9:05-10:10 Gr. 10-12 students in Auditorium
9:05-10:45 Gr. 9 students in Gym
10:10-11:10 Period 1 (gr. 9 classes begin at 10:45)
11:15-12:15 Period 2
1:15-2:15 Period 3
2:20-3:20 Period 4
2. Seeking donations of used hockey equipment
Are you wondering what to do with outgrown or unused hockey equipment? Starting on Monday, you can drop it off at FHCI. The organization, “Skate to Great,” will have collection boxes set up in the Massey Foyer. The skates, helmets, and hockey equipment that you donate will go to children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate because lack of equipment..
Skate To Great is a not-for-profit organization that provides new and used donated skates and hockey equipment to children and at-risk youth. You can learn more about the organization at http://theeyeopener.com/2012/03/skating-for-a-cause/
Please gather up your hockey equipment donations and drop them off at the school this week.
3. Help us prove that every penny counts!
The Forest Hill CI Social Action Club is launching Free the Children's 'We Create Change' PENNY DRIVE
Starting THIS MONDAY - November 19th until Friday November 30th
Help us kick off our campaign with a bang! Today and tomorrow, collect as many pennies as you can and send them to school with your child. Students can drop off penny donation with our representatives in the main foyer as they come to school each morning. They will also have opportunities for penny donations at the Monday morning assemblies and daily during lunch in the cafeteria.
Nearly one BILLION people worldwide do no have access to clean, safe drinking water. Just $25 worth of pennies is enough to provide clean drinking water for one person for LIFE. Stay tuned for more details about other ways to donate and contribute this week.
For more information check out the "We Create Change" official we page at http://www.freethechildren.com/get-involved/campaigns/we-create-change/
The Forest Hill CI Social Action Club sends each of you 'thanks' in advance of their Penny Drive.
