CANADIAN THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION!

On Friday, October 11th, Ms. Vanessa and the grade 4s held their annual Canadian Thanksgiving celebration!

To start off the celebration, the grade 4s wrote anecdotes about how their family celebrates Thanksgiving to share with the high schoolers. High schoolers also got to enjoy a traditional Canadian thanksgiving dessert – apple and pumpkin pie!

Everyone had a great time enjoying pie and celebrating together!

Did you know? (Fun facts!)

The very first Thanksgiving is said to have traced back to 1578 when the English navigator, Martin Frobisher, held a formal ceremony in what is now called Newfoundland to give thanks for surviving the long journey.

This means that Americans did not invent Thanksgiving! It began in Canada. Frobisher’s celebration in 1578 was 43 years before the pilgrims gave thanks in 1621 for the bounty that ended a year of hardships.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

PRE- HALLOWEEN BAKE SALE

Prestige School will be holding a bake sale to sell baked goods and treats on Thursday, October 17th at 11:30am and 1:30pm.
Parents and students – your generous contributions of baked goods are greatly appreciated. Just a reminder that donated goods must be nut-free.

We look forward to a successful sale!

 

THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE

Thank you to all those who donated to our annual Thanksgiving food drive! We had a huge total of 9 boxes to bring to the fire station! A Big thank you goes out to Ms. Price and Mr. Igor for organizing this drive, and Aydin (gr.3), Kati (gr.4), Avleen (gr.5), Bogdan (gr.6), and Sasha (gr.7) for assisting in bringing the boxes to the fire station.

Thanksgiving is a time for giving, and this drive was a great way for Prestige School to give to those less fortunate than us.

Also, please be reminded that Monday, October 14th is the Thanksgiving holiday. School will be closed and will re-open on Tuesday, October 15th.

On behalf of the staff here at Prestige School, we would like to wish all parents and students a happy Thanksgiving!
