October is Water Month!
Our school has taken the Water Challenge through the Hastings and Prince Edward County Health Unit. Each student will receive his or her own water bottle this month and will be encouraged to increase water consumption. We will be learning about the important role that drinking water plays in all our lives. Our over all health is improved throgh drinking water every day. There will be a variety of activities happening throughout the month of October including giving students the opportunity to taste some healthy flavoured waters (though adding in fresh fruit). Water does wonders for all of us!
Fall Fund Raiser On Now!
Our annual Bird's Creek Public School Council Fundraiser is on now. Once again this year, we are selling magazine subscriptions and cookie dough to friends and family. All proceeds from this fund raiser will go towards further playground enhancements and subsidizing transportation for our students to special events throughout the year. New this year.....We are participating in the KINZ 4 KIDZ Program. Instead of students earning individual prizes, for every 100 items sold our school will be donating 25 Webkinz stuffies to our local Bancroft hospital. These Webkinz will be given to children to offer comfort when they visit our hospital. It's our way of giving back to the community for the support they give us throughout the year! We have set a goal of providing 125 Webkinz !
An ipad 2 as been purchased and for every magazine subscription or cookie dough product your child sells, they will get their name entered into a school based draw for this ipad mini 2!! The top seller in each class will receive a free magazine subscription and the top selling class wins a pizza party. The students are very excited about this year's campaign. Thanks for your support! Once again we remind all children to only sell to those people known to their family. We want to keep all students safe!
Our campaign runs from September 20th to October 12th!

Safe School Arrival
Ensuring that children arrive safely at school each day is our concern. We ask for your cooperation in the "Safe Arrival program." If your child is not going to be attending school, or will be late, please telephone the school at 613-332-3721 ext. 60 by 9:00 a.m. Students who arrive after the start of school or leave before dismissal, must have a parent/guardian come to the office to sign them in/out. Please note: Students should not be dropped off at school before 8:25 a.m., as there is no supervision before this time.
