THINGS KEEP ON GROWING AT OOOPS – SO NOW EAT!

It has been another fabulous year in the OOOPS garden! Thank you so much to the wonderful student, parent and staff support. This really has become a living community project. Every student planted a wildflower seed in the yard and a plant in the food garden. Ask your child where they planted theirs and watch them grow over the summer. Better yet, enjoy the bounty of the garden! This is meant to be a community garden and we want you and your family to eat from it. Help yourselves to radish, eggplant, tomato, basil, lettuces, berries and much more—just make sure to leave some for others.

Take pictures and post them on instagram at #toschoolgarden or post a tweet about what you made using the OOOPS garden veggies with the same hashtag.

We want to hear about the summer happenings. We need a lot more help watering the garden over the summer months. You don’t have to commit to a whole summer, just sign up to water or weed once. We’ve got a userfriendly google calendar and a user-friendly watering system. Just email Andi at andrea@andreacurtis.ca and we will show you how. Thank you to the mystery parent who donated their earnings from the Spring Concert’s 50/50 draw. The garden and music program greatly appreciate it!

FUN FAIR

Gingerbread Fair

The countdown to Gingerbread Fair 2014 is on! Friday December 12th 3:30 – 7:30pm.

For those of you who are new to the school, the Gingerbread Fair is the school’s biggest

fundraiser of the year and one heck of a party. The money raised allows us to enrich our

students’ experience at OOOPS with extra programming and new equipment.

There will be a hot dinner and salad bar upstairs, a bake table overflowing with goodies,

the gym will be transformed into a market place, where parents and local vendors will

sell their wares, as well as activities and games for the kids.

Each class has been asked to run an event or take charge of part of the fair’s festivities.

Please help out in any way you can. With your help, the Gingerbread Fair will be a

magical evening and a smashing success!

How You Can Help

Bake We have some pretty impressive bake sales throughout the year, but nothing

compares to the Gingerbread Fair’s bake table. Please consider trotting out your best

treats (nut free) for the table. Contact Hiral Amin-Sharma hiralamin78@hotmail.com

Cook A hot meal is served upstairs and we rely on parents to help us with the spread.

We’re looking for cooks to donate large batches of things like, noodles and tomato

sauce, mac n’ cheese, chili, lasagna, pulled pork or whatever you’re good at.

*We need chaffing dishes, let us know if you have one or two you can loan us.

Wine or Water A Gingerbread Fair favourite needs your contribution of a bottle of wine

or water. Please consider donating a bottle to keep the game going all night long.

Donated bottles are being collected in the front office now.

Vendors Do you have a small business or craft that you can showcase at the fair? For a

small fee you can set up shop at the Gingerbread Fair’s Market in the gym.

Get Crafty OOOPS parents are invited to donate crafts to sell at a Parents Craft table

within the marketplace. All proceeds raised at this table go directly to the school.

Raffle Contribution Every class will be assigned a theme for a basket to be raffled off.

Please help fill your class basket by contributing one item.

Time Roll up your sleeves and pitch in for an hour to help make the magic happen!

Any questions or ideas please contact your Class Rep to help you get you on your way!

THANK YOU!
