February is the month in which to bring your WORLD knowledge up to speed AND plan your summer GARDEN full of delicious, healthy and ORGANIC veggies and plants! 

We've made it easy by sending home a fabulous Magazine subscription catalog and a Bloom Catalog full of exactly what you need!!

Your child should have received a parent letter a fundraising envelope containing two catalogs ( 1 Magazine Catalog and 1 Bloom - plants and seeds catalog )

If you have more than one child at the school the youngest received the packet. 

-----------------

FUNDRAISING THAT IS BOTH EDUCATIONAL AND FUN FOR EVERYONE!

Every sale makes a difference– an AMAZING profit of 30% on every Magazine sold and 40% on every Bloom item comes back to benefit the school!!

Magazines start arriving in the mail in in 8-12 weeks and Bloom items will arrive to the school by end of April in time for Spring planting

You have the option of shipping bloom orders direct to your home but they will charge you shipping and handling. It's easiest to have them ship to the school where your child can bring them home.

We highly encourage ordering online as it's clean and simple and you can use a credit card. IF you wish to use a credit card for Bloom Orders you can only do so online.

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.

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!
