The Kids Card Lunch Club will be offered again for Grade 5 and 6 students on Wednesdays starting February 3rd. Kids will learn how to carve art into rubber blocks with small gouges. These blocks can then be used to print on paper, fabric and more. This club is free and will run 6-7 weeks.
Instruction will be offered by artist Amy Bond and volunteers in the school foyer from 11:30-12:35. Please note: the tools are sharp. Every effort will be made to focus on safety. Enrolment will be limited in order to allow for adequate supervision.

This holiday season we are launching our Fundraising Catalogue along with our Direct Donation Drive. The Catalogue highlights all the ways your donations have been used in the past to enrich the educational experience at Frankland. We invite you to read it at your leisure to learn more about how funds raised by the School Council may be used in the upcoming school year.
Your participation in Frankland’s Direct Donation Drive is voluntary and private. Donations in all amounts are welcome and greatly appreciated. Gifts of $25 or greater qualify for a tax receipt. As always, thank you to all of our families for the many ways you support our school.
The grade one students in 107, 108 and 109 are organizing a Food Drive for Eastview Neighbourhood Community Centre’s Food Bank. The Food Drive is now on and runs until Thursday, December 15. Donations of non-perishable food can be sent with your child to school. The food bank is always looking for a variety of protein, baby food and even snacks, as they have many families with children who use the food bank.
This holiday season please also consider supporting the Shoebox Project drive by filling a standard-sized, decorated shoebox (or memory box) with approximately $50 worth of gifts and essentials that any woman might enjoy and include a warm greeting or message of support. These gifts will be delivered to local women’s shelters and community agencies serving women impacted by homelessness across the city.
Please drop off your shoebox at our Shoebox Project collection table in the Frankland foyer (near the office) on Wednesday, December, 14, between 8:30 a.m. – 9a.m. and 3:15 p.m. – 4p.m. Refer to this checklist for guidance on what should go into your shoebox or for more information about the Shoebox Project click here. For any questions, please contact Corina Chevalier at firstname.lastname@example.org
During school on Wednesday, December 14, students are asked to bring $1 or $2 coins to buy a treat at the bake sale, which is being run by students in Mr. Bieler & Ms. Dwyer’s classes. All money raised from the sale will be donated to the Riverdale Basket Brigade.
The Riverdale Basket Brigade is a neighbourhood charity raising money to provide local families with holiday meal packages & grocery gift cards. This year the charity is hoping to feed 250 families in need. We are hoping to help the Riverdale Basket Brigade reach this goal. More information about the Riverdale Basket Brigade Holiday Campaign can be found here. If families would like to make a separate donation to the Riverdale Basket Brigade, you can do so by clicking the link or by sending a small donation of $5 or $10 to school with your child for the bake sale. A separate collection tin will be available at the bake sale.
