At Sansome Elementary School, we've decided to go paperless with our newsletter. We are hoping to reduce paper use in another step in our ongoing commitment to sustainability. Also, by offering news in this format, we can now provide our community with real-time news as it happens, instead of waiting until the end of the month to send out information.
Another busy year has started for our active staff and students
here at Sansome School. The following is a list of activities the students will
have an opportunity to participate in very soon.
1)Grade 4 & 5 Cross Country Team: Practices start Monday, September 19th. Practice
days are Monday and Wednesdays after school starting at 4:05pm. A letter
concerning our meets will go out to all participants shortly. Practices will
take place rain or shine. If any student requires medication such as asthma
inhalers, they must bring it with them to the club. For safety reasons students
must be on time to participate. Late students will not be able to attend
practice on that day!!
2)Grade 5 Floor Hockey Club: Will take place every Tuesday at 12:25pm starting October 4th.
Grade 5 students are selected by their homeroom teachers to participate in the
Floor Hockey Club. The two teams are mixed with staff and students. We all have
a great time playing over the lunch hour!!
3)Terry Fox Run: This
annual event will take place on Thursday, September 29th @ 11:30am.
Any parents or members from the community are welcome to join us. Our school goal is to raise $600 and we are kindly
asking students to bring a “Toonie for Terry” as a donation for the Terry Fox
Foundation! All students who donate will receive a draw ticket for a special
prize to be raffled off at the end of the day!!
4)Intramurals (Grades 3-5): These extra-curricular activities will start as soon as the
Intramural survey is completed by Sports Council Members. It will most likely
begin in early to mid-October. A co-curricular calendar will outline the dates
these activities take place each month. The calendars will be sent out to
classroom teachers, placed on the Sansome Blog, as well as the Phys. Ed
Please be sure to check it out and stay
in the loop!!
