CHOCOLATE FUNDRAISER – congratulations to Josie & Veronica, our early bird winners for the $200 Best Buy gift card.

Keep selling those chocolates, as there are more prizes to be won.  Money is due back on Monday May 1st.  Draw for all prizes will be Wednesday May 3rd.  THANK YOU for your support in raising funds to re-landscape our back schoolyard!

AUTISM FUNDRAISER – Ethan and his family would like to congratulate Nathan, Kylie, Arwen, Leighton, Rachel, and Mr. Zintel on winning the baskets drawn on April 13th. Tickets were sold for these baskets to raise money for Autism Services of Saskatoon.  Thanks to those who bought!


    

BUS LANES –  the number of vehicles driving in bus lanes after school is increasing significantly.  What is worse is that we are seeing daily occurrences of vehicles driving past buses with their stop arms out.  This is a very serious safety concern and it needs to stop.  The RCMP will be increasing their watch of this situation and people will be getting ticketed.

This is a very simple problem to fix –No One Needs To Drive In The Bus Lanes!

JUMP ROPE FOR HEARTCongratulations Venture Heights.  Our families raised $27,444.90 towards the Heart & Stroke Foundation fundraiser with “Jump Rope for Heart”.  Fantastic Job!!!

CAJON CLUB – students participating in cajon club on Tuesdays and Thursday at lunch will be building a box drum or “cajon” (pronounced “ca-hone”).  We hope to have construction completed sometime in February.

LEGO CLUB – Venture Heights is interested in starting a Lego Club as an extra-curricular activity sometime in the next few months.  We would like to ask all of you; our VHS families, if you have any Lego at home that you are finished with and willing to give away to us here at school.  For further information, please email Jennifer Harland, Special Resource Teacher at jennifer.harland@spiritsd.ca or Jamie Verreault, Grade 4 Teacher at jamie.verreault@spiritsd.ca
