Hello friends and families of Senator Gibson Public School
On behalf of the SAC we are asking for your help in making our Second Annual Bingo Night as successful as it was last year. We will once again be doing a Silent Auction and we have already started collecting some fantastic prizes! In addition to this we will also be selling raffle tickets to win some amazing baskets. This year our Bingo Volunteer Committee has decided to theme our baskets by Grades. We are asking for small prize donations that can be used to make up large amazing baskets. Please see below for themes by Grades;
JK/SK – Craft Basket ($ store items such as glue, pipe cleaners, glitter, etc…)
Grade 1 – Seasonal Fun Basket (Frisbees, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, etc…)
Grade 2 – Game Night Basket (family fun games, cards)
Grade 3 – Movie Night Basket (movies, popcorn, snacks, etc…)
Grade 4 – Sports theme Basket
Grade 5 – Chocolate/Candy Basket
Grade 6 – Basket of sunshine ideas ( yellow gum, lemonade, bright things)
Grade 7 – Diva gift basket
Grade 8 – Guy style in a basket
If you are able to contribute to one of these baskets, (or any item that would be suitable for a raffle/silent auction prize) please send in to school with your child. We are asking that donations kindly be brought in by Friday, February 26th. If pick up of larger items is required, we will gladly arrange with you a suitable solution, pleasecontact Bingo coordinator Erin at (289)700-6761.
Thank you so much for your continued support.

Important Message About Anaphylaxis:
There are students who attend our school that suffer from anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction that affects 2 or more organs, so severe that in some cases it can be life threatening. Its’ onset is so swift that from time of exposure to death can be as short as 15 minutes.
We have children with severe allergies to peanuts, nuts and nut products, shellfish, bananas and eggs. Just touching or smelling one of these allergens can cause a life threatening anaphylactic reaction for students at our school. Prevention is the best approach! We ask your cooperation in using discretion when sending food to the school. We also request that you speak to your child about these allergies and about the importance of washing their hands with soap and warm water.
As a staff, in accordance with the parents of these students, we have developed a plan to deal with this situation. We know that if we work together, we can help to create a safe learning environment for all of our students. If you have any questions about this request or about anaphylaxis, please call the school office.On behalf of these students, their parents, and the Senator Gibson Public School staff, we thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
