New Crossing Guard and Canucks Tickets Raffle

I would like to welcome our new crossing guard, Ms. Marion Anderson, as our previous crossing guard, Ms. Caroline Friesen, was injured on the job last week and is taking some time off to recover. As a school community we would like to say good-bye to Ms. Friesen and wish her all the best in her recovery. There will be a box on the office counter if you want to drop off a card or a donation to go towards a gift from our school community.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind all parents and caregivers to use caution when driving or walking to school. 152 Street is a very busy road and it is getting busier with the new developments being built. The school and parents are working together with the City to recommend additional traffic safety measures be implemented at our intersection and it is currently being reassessed.

Hello Parents,


 The PAC has received a generous donation of a set of 4 Canucks tickets to the upcoming December 7th game against the Sabres.

We will be selling raffle tickets before and after school all week (Tuesday November 24th until Friday, November 27th) out of the portable P111 and the caged area at the back of the school.

 Tickets only cost $2 each, and the winner will be announced at the assembly on Monday, November 30th.

 The more tickets you buy, the better chance you have of winning!  Good Luck!!

red-socks-md  Sock Tree – The Free the Children Team has decided to support a local charity by collecting warm socks and hats for adults in need. The weather is getting colder and some people cannot afford a new pair of socks to keep them warm. A Christmas tree has been set up if your family would like to add a warm pair of socks or hat, so we can keep some people warm this holiday season. Thank you!

Shape of the Week for Nov. 16 – 20, 2015

   Thank you to the parents that joined us for our Remembrance Day assembly this morning. Our students impressed us again this year with their respect for this important assembly and our choir did a wonderful job.

  The Clothing Drive is almost over, but if you still have things to donate please bring them to Portable P111 on Monday. All the donations will be picked up Tuesday morning.

  Family Photo Night – Due to popular request, the PAC has arranged for another photography session for our school families.  The sessions will be done by Christopher Johnson.  He has been a photographer for over 25 years and has offered to do a fundraising photo shoot session for the families of Sullivan Elementary.  Photo sessions will be held in the P111 portable on Wednesday, November 18th.

Christopher is offering photo sessions at a cost of $20 per 15 minute session, which will include one 8×10 photo of your choice from the gallery of pictures he takes of your family.  You will also be able to purchase additional pictures from him directly.  He generously will be giving the session fees back to our school PAC.

This is a great opportunity to get some pictures done for the holidays, or for making cards and gifts!  Below there is a link for a sign up sheet.  Please sign up for the time slot you want, and then to secure your time slot, bring the $20 session fee to Marle Prasad or Heather Brown at the office before or after school.

 If you have any questions, please email the PAC at

 ** Please Note that due to the use of a white sheet and background, shoes will have to be removed when your pictures are being taken.  **
