Your Generosity Would Be Appreciated

This last weekend one of our students, Nick Bailey, was injured in a freak accident while riding his quad, leaving him with a severed spinal cord. Nick is in hospital recovering and our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family. Taking time off work to attend to Nick has its financial costs, so we are making families aware of two ways that they might make financial donations. There is an account set up at the Colonsay Credit Union where donations are being accepted, and there is a Go Fund Me page that has been established to receive donations. If you have the means to help, the support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for considering helping out one of our families.

Yummy Yearbook Pizza Sale

This year our yearbook committee will be offering pizza fundraisers with the purpose of continuing to keep the yearbook costs at a minimum. The April pizza luncheon will be delivered on Wednesday, October 19th. Each extra-large slice will cost $3.50. The pizza will be prepared by Family Pizza, in a nut free facility.

Order forms are available at the office and must be returned to the office by Friday October 14th.

Thank you for your support!

Removal of Microwaves

Today is letter is going home with students outlining a need to remove microwaves from classrooms and hallways at Colonsay School. This is in response to a provincial initiative to ensure the safety of students, staff, and guests to schools. As such, microwaves will no longer be available in classrooms and hallways for student use. Please see the note below for the full details.

We appreciate that this may cause some inconvenience. We ask for your patience and assistance as we make this transition.
