5th Annual Move-a-Thon, May 4

13 Apr

On May 4, Brownridge is having it’s annual Move-a-Thon to raise money to send kids with cancer to Camp Oochigeas. Camp Ooch is an opportunity for these children to just be children. This year BOUNCE Entertainment will be getting the students movin’ and groovin’. Our goal is to raise $10,000 so that we can send 5 children to camp. Last year we raised $9278 and to date we have raised close to $35,000.

Students are bringing home pledge envelopes today. The envelopes must be returned by May 3 regardless of whether or not funds are raised. Students receive 1 raffle ticket for every $10.00 donated. Prices include: iTune cards, movie pass for 4, Ms. Mida’s VP for the day, a dozen cake pops by Delectable Dessertz, and many teacher fun prizes. Prizes will be on display in the front foyer showcase by end of next week.

Camp Oochigeas will issue tax receipts upon request. Donation cheques of $25.00 and greater are eligible for a tax receipt. Please make cheques payable to Camp Oochigeas and enclose your home address and email so that the receipts can be sent directly to you. All other donations would be appreciated in cash.

Bicycle Helmet Law

4 Apr

Wearing a bike helmet in Ontario is compulsory for those under the age of 18. That means anyone under the age of 18 who rides any type of bicycle on Ontario roads, such as a tricycle, a bike, a tandem, or in a children’s bicycle seat, must wear an approved bicycle helmet.Apr 15, 2011  helmet in Ontario

With the spring weather we see more students riding their bikes to school. Parents of children under the age of 16 are responsible to ensure their child has a proper helmet and most importantly, wears it! As well, cellphones are not only dangerous distraction when driving, they are equally as dangerous when riding a bike! Please address this issue with your child.
