SERVICE DOLLAR DAY
We are putting together a Service Dollar Day this Wednesday October 31st! If the students bring in $1.00 to be donated to Catholic Charities USA for the Disaster Relief Fund that supports individuals and families impacted by the recent hurricanes and tropical storms, they will be allowed to wear a Halloween Shirt and/or accessories (headbands, socks, appropriate jewelry, etc). Students must wear their school bottoms. No masks, hats, makeup or costumes.
Kaelin McGlincy, Gr. 6, is doing a book drive to collect books for the pediatric library at Our Lady of Peace. Books may be dropped off at the school office and will be picked up on Friday, November 2.
We will be collecting candy October 26th through November 5th in the church gathering area. Look for the box marked Operation Gratitude and deposit leftover Halloween candy. This candy will be collected and mailed to Operation Gratitude for care packages distributed to our service men and women. Please note that we can only accept individually wrapped candy and no “loose” candy such as M&Ms or candy corn.
Additionally we will be collecting letters to our service men and women to be included in care packages. There will be an envelope on the candy box to collect letters or you can give to Mrs. Herriott.
Tips on how to write the letter and ideas of types of things the children can say:
➔ Start with a salutation, such as “Dear Hero” or “Dear Brave One”
➔ Write to a: Deployed Troop, Veteran, New Recruit, First Responder
A Deployed Troop is currently overseas in harm’s way.
A Veteran has served our country in the past.
A New Recruit just completed Boot Camp and has sworn to serve for 4+ years.
A First Responder serves as a Firefighter, a Paramedic, or in Law Enforcement.
All deserve to be thanked for their commitment and bravery!
➔ Express your thanks for their selfless service
➔ Please do not include the date or year on your letter or card
➔ Avoid politics completely and religion in excess; however, saying you are praying for
them is wonderful
➔ Share a little about yourself: Family, Hobbies, Work, School, Pets, Travel
➔ Talk about life and interests: Sports, Weather, Music, Movies, Food, Books
➔ Adults: Include your contact information (mail or email) so the recipient can reply.
Children: USE FIRST NAMES ONLY and no addresses please
➔ Can’t find the words? Consider drawing or painting a picture instead; please add a note
to kids’ drawings with their age. Please avoid glitter!
Yearbook flyers are coming home today. Orders can only be placed on line at ybpay.lifetouch.com, our yearbook code is 12159319.
