Student Council Corner
By: Madeline T.

Spirit Days
Student Council has been busy at work. We held a great Halloween Dance for grades 6-8 students and collected over 170 non-perishable food items for the Aurora Food Pantry.  Our first spirit day-Twin Day-was held in November. We have a full week of spirit days from December 19- 23. Spirit days are a fun way for children to embrace the holiday season.  

Monday Dec. 19: Crazy Hair/Hat Day
Tuesday Dec. 20: Ugly/Crazy Sweater Day
Wednesday Dec. 21: Backwards Day
Thursday Dec. 22: Winter Clothing Day
Friday Dec. 23: Pajama Day  

Candy Grams
Since we are in the holiday season, we also will be handing out Candy Grams. A candy gram is a candy cane and a note saying a special message to a friend a son/daughter or maybe even a favourite teacher!  
Candy Grams will be sold Monday December 12-Thursday December 15 at morning recess in the front foyer for 75 cents each. They will be delivered on Friday December 23. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly back to students to be divided evenly amongst the divisions by student council.

Food Drive
Student Council, with the support of the Parent Council will be holding a school-wide food drive in support of the Aurora Food Pantry in December. Donations can be sent to school with your child or can be placed directly in the labelled boxes in the front foyer. In order to help collect the items that are most in need, we are asking grades to bring in specific items. Please check expiry dates before donating. We thank you in advance for your contributions, which will greatly help families in our community!
