We don't want any of our families ticketed – so we wanted you to be award in advance.  </p><p>Thanks in advance for your co-operation of this change and helping to ensure the safety of our students.</p><p><br></p>
PA Day Tomorrow and Character Assembly Time Change! Day Tomorrow and Character Assembly Time Change! <p>​​Hi,</p><p>Just a reminder that tomorrow is a PA Day so there will be no school for students.

Sledding Safety at School Safety at School <p><strong>​​Reminder about sledding safety at school:</strong></p><p><b><br></b>Student safety is our first priority, and although we do allow "crazy carpets" and soft sleds at our school, we do not allow hard sleds, two-person sleds or snow racers. We do supervise sledding and we remind students of safety rules on a regular basis. </p><p>We want to inform parents that if students are sledding at school, Ophea (the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association) recommends that they should wear a properly fitted (as per manufacturer's guidelines) and properly worn CSA-approved hockey helmet or snow sport helmet certified by a recognized safety standards association.</p><p>While wearing a helmet is not mandatory, you are welcome to send a helmet to school with your child, on the occasion that they may be sledding at school.  </p><p> </p>

Christmas Cheer wrapping up Thursday, December 14th! Cheer wrapping up Thursday, December 14th! <p>​</p><p>First, a HUGE thank-you to all for your overwhelming support of our WE Day & our GREEN Team led initiatives to help those less fortunate. This year, the Green Team "Fill a Bag" event was a success leading to a Christmas Cheer donation by $194.00! Our WE Day team has wrapped up the "Shoe Box" campaign – shipping over 89 boxes (smashing our goal of 25) filled with gifts to communities on the shores of James Bay in Northern Ontario. What a heartwarming display of Hyde Park kindness this was!!! Now we are on to Christmas Cheer! This campaign will wrap up this Thursday, December 14<sup>th</sup>!!!! Please see below for more details. </p><p>The Free the Children Team is happy to announce our participation in the Barrie and District Christmas Cheer Campaign again this year. Over 1800 families in our community are in need this holiday season. Our campaign for non-perishable food items, new unwrapped toys or cash donations kicked off on November 27th and will run for a little over two weeks. All items must be at the school by Thursday December 14th in order to be packed and ready for pick up on the 15th . Some of the items needed include; canned goods (soup, meats, stews, pasta sauces, vegetables and fruits), dry foods (cereal, cake mixes, pasta, rice, dry soup mixes), candy, jello, pudding, baby formula, toilet paper, paper towel, diapers and Kleenex. New unwrapped toys for all ages (fewer toys are donated in the past for babies and teenagers). Canadian Tire money to buy toys can be donated and cash donations are always helpful. Please make sure that you watch the expiration dates on the food items you send in and please avoid sending in items in glass bottles. Together the Hyde Park Community is going to make a difference in the lives of some local Barrie families this holiday season.</p>
