Monday, October 25, 2021 - Issue #8

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Where did October go? Reflecting on the last week and preparing for the week ahead has us planning out the end of the month. It is amazing how fast time flies when you are having fun! Please remember that we are ending this month with a three day weekend for students as Monday, November 1st is a P.A. Day.


Don't forget that we are collecting socks until the end of the week for Socktober. This is a great opportunity to help out people in our own community. Please send in new socks of any size.


It seems that the cooler temperatures have arrived. Please ensure that your child has clothes suitable for playing outside. Students are outside for 30 minutes twice each day for recess. Classes may also go for walks or participate in outdoor physical activity so being dressed for the weather is an important.


Thank you to everyone who has already returned the Emergency Contact form and updated their Freedom of Information consents using the link you were emailed. If you have not had a chance, please do so as soon as possible. It is important that we have current contact information on file and have your explicit consent to share information about your student, if you wish to provide it.


If you have any questions or if there's something we have missed, please email us at welba@limestone.on.ca


Warm regards,

Ms. Fraser, Mrs. Clapp, Mr. McFarlane & Mrs. Hart

Current Fundraisers

We are still apart of the Cobs Bread “Doughraisers” fundraising program! Every time you shop at Cobs in the Riocan Center simply mention our school’s name before your purchase is rung up at the till, and 10% of that sale will be donated right back to Welborne!! What a wonderful win-win deal: yummy baked goods for you, and a helpful, generous donation for the kids!


Thank you Cobs!

Socktober!

Big picture

For the remainder of the month of October, We will be collecting new socks that will be donated to SOCKS Kingston. Promoting acts of kindness teaches empathy and good citizenship. When children are part of activities that help others less fortunate than themselves, it provides them with a real sense of perspective, highlighting their own good fortune. Being generous helps them appreciate what they have, makes them feel useful, and fosters empathy.

All sizes are needed, from infant to adult socks! With cooler temperatures coming our way, warm socks are great to donate this time of year.

Plus, socks collected in Kingston stay right here in the city. SOCKS Kingston distributes them to local agencies such as shelters and community groups. Feel free to ask friends and family members to help with donations.
