February 5th is National Sweater Day

web_polarbear_800x800_enPut on your wackiest sweater, your favourite sweater, or your coziest sweater on National Sweater Day this February 5th.  The goal of National Sweater Day is for people to think about energy conservation.  So instead of turning up your thermostats, put on a sweater and save energy.  Did you know that if all Canadians lowered their thermostats by just two degrees Celsius, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about four megatons – that’s the equivalent to taking nearly 700,000 cars off the road! (www.wwf.ca).  Sunnybrae’s Green Team challenges all of our Bulldog families to turn down the heat on February 5th, and put on a sweater!

Not only will students be wearing their fun sweaters at school, we are inviting students to bring in any gently used men’s, women’s or children’s sweaters.  All sweaters will be donated to local organizations where families in need can access this clothing. Not only can students make a difference for the environment, but also for their community.

So break out those groovy sweaters on February 5th, and turn down the heat, and turn up the fun!  Go Bulldogs!

Sunnybrae’s Family Literacy Day January 27th

BLOG_2_FAMILY_LITERACY_DAY_13_11_011Family Literacy Day is on Tuesday January 27th.  Family Literacy Day is a national initiative that was created to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.   You can visit their website at  http://abclifeliteracy.ca/fld/family-literacy-day for more information, or for family literacy ideas for home.

Here at Sunnybrae, we will celebrate Family Literacy Day in style with our “Sunnybrae Family”.  On Tuesday January 27th, students are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite literary character.  You can pick a fairy tale character, book character, or a nursery rhyme character, you decide.   Students are also encouraged to bring in a favourite book from home to share and read with classmates.  If coming up with a costume is a bit tricky, students may also come to school in their pajamas, ready to cuddle up and read!

On Tuesday January 27th let’s celebrate literacy Sunnybrae style!
