Bishop Abraham Elementary’s first group of Full Day Kindergarten students share their dreams for the future! Today They Conquer the Playground, Tomorrow They Conquer the World!
Hello Wonderful People!
The Association for New Canadians’ (ANC) Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) Team is excited to share news about an upcoming event in support of the ANC’s newcomer children and youth summer programs!
Every year, the ANC delivers special programming for newcomer children and youth in which they can build community connections as well as develop social and linguistic skills. The programming provides newcomer children and youth with the opportunity to continue their English as Second (or third!) Language education in a fun and enjoyable environment throughout the summer. Additionally, these programs help newcomer children and youth feel linked to their new community while gaining the language skills and confidence necessary for successful integration. This year, to help raise funds for these programs, we are holding a card making event on Thursday, June 8th from 7-9pm in the St. Pius X Parish Hall located underneath our language school [10 Smithville Cres.]
Kay Smith, a Stampin’ Up demonstrator, will be facilitating this evening. Each participant receives a collectable tin with the contents to make 16 unique cards [4 cards of 4 designs]. Kay will provide us with stamps to use to make these cards unique to our desires; birthday cards, retirement cards, whatever you need! If you are a well seasoned card maker who owns your own preferred adhesive, bring it along with you, otherwise we will have some adhesive on hand for you to use.
The fee to attend this class is $40, upon receiving payment your seat will be reserved. To reserve your seat, please respond to this email, speak with one of our SWIS workers [Maggie, Tilak, Mohammad, Burke] or call our office (722-2828). We can arrange to receive your payment in person or online in advance of the event. We will not be accepting entrance fees at the event itself.
Would you like to support the cause but can’t make it on June 8th? If you would like to reserve a seat & donate it to somebody, we will happily share this opportunity with somebody less fortunate.
When: Thursday, June 8th from 7-9pm
What: Occasional Card Making Class, make 16 cards
Where: St. Pius X Parish Hall, 10 Smithville Ave.
There is plenty of parking available in the parking lot which is in front of St. Pius X church / behind Rennie’s River Elementary School. We will have a poster outside so you can easily see which door to enter. The door faces the parking lot, on the side of the building closest to St. Patrick’s Mercy Home.
Bring your friends and family for a relaxing and fun night, all for a good cause. There will be door prizes and draws during the evening. At the end of the night you’ll walk away with 16 occasional cards, which works out to an economic cost of $2.50 per card.
Please feel free to share this event with others who may be interested. We’re looking forward to seeing you and thank you for supporting these valuable programs!
Thanks very much.
Maggie, Tilak, Mohammad, Burke, Meghan and the ANC Children and Youth
