Pizza Day kicked off for the year on Friday, October 12 with slices at $2 a piece, hotdogs for $2, popcorn and juice for $1 each. Students can order and pay for their pizza ($2/slice) or hotdog ($2) for lunch on Friday mornings by stopping at the door closest to the bus-entrance.
Oct. 19 is a non-instructional day.
So far this school year, students have been learning about ecosystems, salmon habitats, and considering cause and effect. They have also been examining character, evolution, and learning the Shuswap language.
This year’s Terry Fox Run raised a whopping $1,536.95. Thanks go to the Legion Ladies Auxiliary Branch 194 for oranges and snacks, JJ at Petro Can for providing the bottled water, and all the volunteers.
On Oct. 26, DSS will host Find Your Fit from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. The free event invites students to jump into a ton of fun activities that will help with career planning and offer information on high demand occupations. Parents can find ticket stub for the event on school’s website.
DSS will host dress-up day at the school and run a costume parade with “trick or treating” around the halls before dismissal on Oct. 31.
Spirit of Clinton
The Spirit of Clinton Committee (SCC) is actively seeking out volunteers of all ages and skill-sets, particularly parents
Come out to get involved with the organization and operation of the various social and just-for-fun events that you see happen in our community.
The Kids Halloween Party, an event traditionally hosted by the SCC’s Recreation Commission, will take place on Halloween night.
We desperately need volunteers for this event. In the past, it has been organized by one person and operated by usually less than five volunteers. This has been challenging and exhausting, but always fun.
Running games, keeping kids organized and out of trouble, and cooking and serving food are just some of the responsibilities of volunteers at the various youth events the Rec. Commission puts on for the Village each year. When at least 60 to 80 kids come out to each event, it gets tough with only a handful of folks helping out.
If you would like to continue seeing these free events take place in our community, please help us make them happen. We cannot do it alone, and with more help, we can ensure better events for everybody. Without that help and without more volunteers, the Rec. Commission will flop entirely, as it has in the past.
If you would like to get involved with the SCC in any way, shape, or form, please contact myself at email@example.com. We need donations, cooks, decorators, leaders, shoppers, artists, and more. Thanks again to those who continue to volunteer actively in the community.
