It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us and that soon we will be into a new year.  The Christmas spirit has already begun at Alexander Park, with students being involved in a variety of Christmas literacy, arts and craft, and cooking activities.  As always, December promises to be a busy and exciting time around the school.

The A.P.E.S.’ Family Christmas “Craftacular” has been set for the morning of Friday, December 14 beginning at 9 a.m.

The school wide activities include: a variety of craft activities to choose from, a family school wide walk, a carol sing-a-long in the gym, and a Christmas read.  Parents and siblings are invited to come for all or for part of the morning.  It promises to be a fun and festive morning.

Our annual “Gifts from the Heart” is set for December 18 and is once again sure to be a huge.  The children always enjoy “shopping” for just the right gifts for their family and wrapping everything up in festive paper.

Thanks to the amazing generosity of parents and staff, children always go home with wonderful recycled gifts for their family, and all the toonies collected will be given to the Golden Food Bank.  Each year our goals of providing children the opportunity to experience the joy of giving, while at the same time reducing waste by recycling and reusing items, and raising money for others in greater need, are easily met.

Staff and children always welcome the Christmas Break.  Holidays are a time for family, friends, celebration, and also a time to get re energized for the winter term at school.   From the Alexander Park School staff to all of the A.P.E.S.’ students and their families and to the Golden community, best wishes for a peaceful, healthy and happy holiday season.
