The St. John Paul II CSC Annual Fund Raiser was a fabulous success. The students had an absolute blast at the Hallowe’en dance-a-thon. The costumes were very creative and lots of fun. The DJ kept the dancing going all day long! Students also enjoyed class pumpkin & door decorating, the ‘Gr. 6 Haunted House’, as well as a variety of in-class activities that led up to the ’big’ event.

A special thank you to the CSC and the dynamic organizing committee: Mrs. Beltrame, Mrs. Hematenejad & Ms. Lindsay, as well as all the parent volunteers who came to decorate and ‘take-down’ the gym. We also thank our custodians for all their assistance.

A HUGE thank you to YOU – for your GENEROUS donations. We raised $9,570.80 – this amount surpassed last year’s total. WOW!

YOUR generous contributions will enable us to provide a range of worthwhile initiatives and activities that support student achievement and well-being.

The winners of the Class Pizza Parties are: Mr. Attard’s Gr. 7 class ($1919); Mrs. Fonseca’s Gr. 6 Class ($1462); and Mrs. D’Amore’s FDK Class ($1308).

($30 Indigo Gift Card), Angelica C. ($25 Sports Chek Gift Card), and Edelen C. ($25 Sport Chek Gift Card). Congratulations to all the prize winners!

On Friday, the remaining 60 prize draws were distributed.

The students were so excited!
