Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart

Dear Sunnybrae Families,

I am writing to inform you of some changes to recent information you received about Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart. This community has been a long-time supporter of the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s efforts to raise money. Many of you are aware of our school’s Skipping Demonstration Team which travels through the Spring to many schools to perform and to promote this worthy charity. The team and its’ coaches are excellent ambassadors for our school and students across Simcoe County benefit from their dedication. We are also proud of Ms. MacDonald, Mrs. Kell and Mrs. Nicholls who were recently recognized by the Heart and Stroke Foundation for their many years of service.

It is important for you to know that Simcoe County District School Board does not allow “Competition among students to encourage or increase sales… Incentive prizes, if awarded, shall be for participation only” (1.8, FUNDRAISING AND FINANCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY, Ontario Regulation 298, Section 24 and 25 Policy 4320). This means that we are not able to award prizes to students based on the amount of funds that they are able to raise or in this case, donations they can gather. We are allowed however to distribute all of the prizes earned in an equitable way based on participation only.

Our plan will be to accept all prizes awarded by the Heart and Stroke Foundation and award them based on the results of a ‘draw’. Each student who participates in collecting donations will be entered into the draw. Moving forward, for all similar school activities including the traditional QSP Magazine sale in the fall, we will follow this model for prize distribution.

We sincerely hope that you will continue to support Sunnybrae Public School’s work with Jump Rope for Heart, Hoops for Heart and the Skipping Team.

Sincerely,

Cory McKeown

Principal

Earth Day Wednesday April 22nd!

earth dayEarth Day is Wednesday April 22nd!  Join people from around the planet trying to make a difference.  The Green Team challenges all walkers to walk to school on Earth Day.  We also challenge you to bring in a litterless lunch! 

At home, do things to help the Earth.  Turn off the lights until it is dark out, clean up the  trash outside (if there is any), and make sure to turn off things that use electricity when they are not in use.
