ALS Walk & Coin Drive Challenge

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a motor neuron disease that gradually paralyzes a person until they are unable to control their muscles. You are probably already familiar with the Ice Bucket Challenge. Charlie Lake School has challenged SD 60 schools to raise more funds than they do.

We are doing a coin drive to raise money for ALS. You can donate any amount by coin, cash or cheque. As well you can donate online with a credit card.

Alwin Holland School – ALS Donation

Please let your child’s teacher know if you have donated this way so that the amount can be recorded for your child’s class.

Top class by total and top class by weight will get to dump a bucket of ice cold water on one of the admin or other staff members.

Deadline for donations: Thursday, May 31st

We will do a walk and ice water dumping later in June.

Cabin Fever Day – Still a go at this time

We have heard back from transportation and at this time buses for field trips are still a go.

We do have a Plan B should the buses to Taylor (Archery/Skating) and Charlie Lake School (Snowshoeing/Cross Country Skiing/Crazy Carpeting) be cancelled at a later time.

In the event that the remaining buses are cancelled for in town activities, we will cancel Cabin Fever Day.

Winter Boot Donations

We are short on extra winter boots at the school. We have had some go missing off the boot rack lately and we try to have extra for students that forget to bring them.  If you have any boots that you are willing to donate to the school,  would you please bring them to the office.

Thank you.
