From the Principal’s Desk – Nov 22, 2012

Vice Principal
Next Tuesday we say good bye to Mr. O’Brien, who has been our Acting Vice Principal for the past 6 weeks. A big thank you for all you have done to support the students at Swansea.  We will miss you.

We also welcome back Ms. George and are glad that she has made a speedy recovery.

Swansea Holiday Fund
The holiday season is approaching and we know that this can be a very difficult time in the lives of many of our families.  Many years ago we established a Holiday Fund so that parents who need financial assistance during this time will be able to access funds.  This year is no exception.  Our Holiday Fund will be able to offer gift certificates to families in need so that they can provide something special for their children who attend Swansea Public School.

If you would like to participate in this program, please call the school at 416-393-9082 Extension 20005, and leave a message for Mary White.   All inquiries will be treated with confidentiality.

Some parents have expressed an interest in donating to the Swansea Holiday Fund. If this would apply to you, please bring or send a cheque to the school office payable to Swansea School Council and write “Holiday Fund” on the memo line.  Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.

Milk Program
The Swansea Milk Program is back again!

White or chocolate milk will be available for pick-up outside the lunchrooms starting January 9th and will run until May 29th. The cost is $10 per child, payable by cash or cheque.  Order forms will be going home this week and need to be returned by December 7th.
