Wye School Supporting the Strathcona Christmas Bureau Campaign
November 28, 2019
Dear Parents and/or Guardians,
As the holiday season approaches, we here at Wye School would like to help ensure that everyone has a Christmas filled with family, food, presents and new memories. It is at this time of the year that those less fortunate need some extra help to make those things happen. Wye School has been an excellent supporter of the Strathcona Christmas Bureau for many years and we would like to continue that tradition.
After speaking to the Depot Manager and finding out what items they are in need of, we have decided to do our first week of giving to include gifts for teens and adults (as this is something they are very short of). The second week of our campaign we will be collecting food items. This year, we are challenging each class to collect as much as they can. The class who collects the most gift items the first week will receive a prize at the end of the week. The class that collects the most food the second week will win a prize too! Any contribution made makes a difference and does not go unnoticed!
Below is a list of the items we will be collecting during our campaign, please remember to send non-perishable food items only:
Monday, December 2nd – Teenage Girl Gifts (books, make-up, purses, stationary, art supplies, etc.)
Tuesday, December 3rd – Teenage Boy Gifts (books, sports equipment, socks, bags, headphones, etc.)
Wednesday, December 4th – Mom Gifts (books, toiletries, make-up, bath bombs, etc.)
Thursday, December 5th – Dad Gifts (tools, books, slippers, socks, toiletries, etc.)
Friday, December 6th – Gift Card Day (movie theatre, iTunes, Wal-Mart, McDonalds, etc. – please keep the gift cards between $10-25)
Monday, December 9thd – Toiletries Day (toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, etc.)
Tuesday, December 10th – Boxes Day (pasta, Kraft dinner, cake mixes, jell-o, granola bars etc.)
Wednesday, December 11h – Treat Day (baking ingredients, cookies, sweets, chocolates, etc.)
Thursday, December 12th – Bags Day (ichiban, rice, pasta, sugar, etc.)
Friday, December 13th – Can Day (canned fruit, canned vegetables, canned soup, tomato sauce etc.)
Thank you in advance for all of your support. It is such a wonderful feeling to help make everyone’s holidays just a little bit brighter!
We hope you have happy holiday season filled with joy and excitement!
Your Wye School Christmas Bureau Committee

Land and People Acknowledgement
We acknowledge with respect the history and culture of the peoples with whom Treaty 6 was signed and the land upon which Elk Island Public Schools reside. We also acknowledge the traditional homeland of the Métis Nation.
We recognize our responsibility as Treaty members and honor the heritage and gifts of the First Peoples.
We commit to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of collaboration and reconciliation. Click here to learn more.
With the winter season well underway, we want to remind parents to dress children appropriately for the weather when getting ready for school or the bus. The weather often changes unexpectedly throughout the day, so please select suitable outerwear and ensure your child is prepared for changing conditions.
If inclement weather conditions occur, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) will advise parents of any bus cancellations using various communications tools including: automated-telephone messages, alerts posted on www.eips.ca and school websites, Twitter, Facebook, local radio stations, and on Versatrans My Stop.
Decisions regarding bus cancellations are guided by EIPS administrative procedures that states: “school bus service may be suspended when…Environment Canada reports a temperature of -40 C.” Other reasons for suspending or delaying school bus services include adverse weather and poor road condition.
When school bus services are suspended, schools will remain open to students. EIPS believes parents have the right and responsibility to make choices for their children based on their beliefs and perceptions of safety during times of inclement weather.
