T.P.S. is Now Accepting Non-Perishable Food Donations
A Message from the United Way
In line with the response and needs in the community, United Way KFL&A is partnering with the Kingston Frontenacs and the Leon’s Centre for another community donation drive in December. Both teams were looking for ways to help out in the community during these challenging times and they have been kind enough to open up their box office for community donations from December 7th – 11th and December 14th – 18th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Bins will be set up at Gate 4 at the Leon’s Centre, The Tragically Hip Way, to collect donations of warm clothing including coats, hats, mitts, socks, boots, scarves, gently used children’s clothing and boots, hygiene items and non-perishable food.
It is clear that people are looking for ways to help the most vulnerable members, during the pandemic and into the holiday season.

Pink Shirt Day!
Grade 5 & 9 ActivPass
On November 27th, Truedell Public School students will BUST A MOVE and GET INTO THE GROOVE! With the help of Mrs. Olding, students will be dancing in blocks of time with their class.
We have had massive success with this fundraiser over the past two years and it is a big hit with staff and students!
All funds raised will go towards this year’s fundraising goals which include purchasing: additional technology, COVID-19 classroom supplies, and outdoor play equipment. We ask that students not canvas door-to-door and instead ask friends and family to sponsor them.
The Dance-A-Thon sponsor form was sent home yesterday and is also attached below. Thanks for your support!
