"Me want cookie!" "Me eat cookie!" "Om nom nom nom" (said through a mouth full of food). - The Cookie Monster!
EVERYONE LOVES BAKED ITEMS ESPECIALLY COOKIES!
Our annual Holiday Concert and Bake Sale is coming up fast on December 15th. Every year parents hold a bake sale on the evening of the concert in order to raise funds for cool things like more technology or fun field trips for our kids at Morden.
As always we rely on your generosity, time and energy to make this fundraiser a success. Christene Cardosa is the parent in charge of organizing bakers for this event. Please contact her if you can bake for us! If you can't bake but can help organize / setup / pack whatever please contact us as well - it's a big event and we need manpower to ensure it runs smoothly!
NEED: 1-2 dozen baked goods from each baker MUST BE: Peanut/Nut Free
Baked goods will be packaged into assorted boxes of a dozen prior to the concert.
Many thanks to parents and friends who attended the Morden Chapters Night on Tuesday. We raised over $1,000 for our school to go towards books. We also thank the volunteer bakers and students who provided snacks and entertainment! Congratulations to the winner of the $20 gift card raffle: Samantha N. in 7-2.
We hope all of our Morden families will come together on one night to celebrate the season. We will be recognizing many different celebrations that occur at this time of year. Due to our ever-growing student population and audience, we will be holding 3 separate concerts on one BIG night! The line-up is as follows:
6:00 - 6:40: Grade Kindergarten,1,2,3 and some of the Gr. 6 music classes (will confirm the exact classes next week)
6:50- 7:30: Classes 4/5, 5-1, 5-2, 5-3, 5/6 and the rest of the Gr. 6 music classes
7:40- 8:30: Classes 6-6 and all grade 7 & 8 classes including an intermediate choir and band.
After each concert, we will clear the gymnasium, and invite the next group in.
Please join us to hear some amazing music, see some skits and listen to the choir. In addition, the Home and School will be having a bake sale. Bring your holiday spirit!

A big thank you for the amazing response from our school parents! Our list of volunteer chili cooks is now complete! We are in need of just a few parents to help with serving and setup/cleanup. If you can spare an hour or half an hour to setup from 4:00 to 4:45 or serve from 5:00 to 6:30 and clean up from 6:30 to 7:00 we would greatly appreciate the help!
Your support in making Open House a success for our kids is really appreciated!
