March/April Newletter is in!!!

Thursday Sessions
The Board has decided to cancel Thursday sessions. The attendance was not high enough to keep these sessions going.

No Multiplex
Remember, there are no multiplex sessions on March 10 or March 24. These sessions will be at the church from 9:30 – 11:30.

Thanks to the members who came out to our Grocery Pack at the Co-op. Your efforts raised $1365 for the playgroup.

Term 2
Term 2 has started. Cheques are due. You can re-date last term’s cheque if it was not cashed. Please see a coordinator at one of the church sessions. It is your responsibility to complete your hours. The board will keep you posted on volunteer opportunities.

This term volunteering opportunities include the usual toy washes and board meetings. We also have plans to paint the basement of the church. We have another Grocery Pack on April 19 and will be applying for a Spring Clean Up grant. We need your help for all these activities, especially the pack and clean up as these are fundraising events for us.

Spring Break Sessions
If you would like to bring a school aged child/ children to sessions during spring break, please ask a coordinator for permission in advance of the session. Permission will be granted unless the number of school aged children becomes too high. The usual drop-in fee applies to school aged children. Our sessions are for pre-school aged children and our goal is to ensure their enjoyment of the sessions. If any of school aged children are particularly disruptive, the coordinator may ask that they not be brought to any more sessions.

Easter Party
Join us for an Easter Party on Wednesday March 19 at the Church. Make sure you sign up to bring food. There will be an Easter egg hunt and treats for the children!

Emergency Contact Info
We’ve a new form for members to fill out. It includes the names of the children you bring to playgroup and any health issues they have. We’re also asking for an emergency contact number for our members.

If you have any concerns or questions, talk to a coordinator, a board member or email at or write it down and drop it in our suggestion box.
