Happy Sunday Clarksdale Families,

A very busy December ahead!

Grade 2 French Immersion Registration:

A reminder that the French Immersion information session is being held on Thursday, December 6th, 6-7 pm at the New Street Education Centre/Gary Allan High School, 3250 New Street.  Please note that individual schools will not be hosting information nights at this time.  Additional information is available on the Halton website

Deadline for registrations is January 31, 2019.

Holiday Multicultural Craft Night and Sing-a-long is Coming:

A reminder of our holiday craft night and sing-a-long on Thursday December 13th, from 6:30-8:00pm.  Please make sure you have returned your registration form so that we can plan the right number of crafts and snacks.  Hope to see you all there!

Angel Tree and Hat/Mitten Tree:

Thank you to those who have already participated in the hat/mitten tree and the angel tree.  We still have lots of cards available. Please consider donating a pair of mittens, hat or scarf to our mitten tree, located in the library.  Or come to the office and select a card from our angel tree.  Then, simply purchase a gift, suitable for a child of that age, wrap it and place it with the card (and description of gift) attached back under the tree. New toys, Lego, craft items, clothing, books (from our book fair!) etc. are all great suggestions. Gift cards are also welcome (e.g. grocery stores, Chapters, Walmart, Canadian Tire, Toys R Us).  We thank you in advance for your kind support of this important event. The last day for donations is Friday, December 14th.

**Please note:  if you know of a family in need, or if you feel you could use a helping hand yourself, please contact me at or call the school.

Book Fair Coming Soon!

Please support the Clarksdale Library by coming out to our December Book Fair!  We will have a wide selection of books that will appeal to readers at every level.  Picture books, easy readers, chapter books, junior novels and other popular must-read titles are feature online. 

Each class will have time to visit the fair and make their purchases.  The fair will also be open during our craft night for additional shopping!

Also, our library collection has recently been weeded due to the age of the books and would really appreciate any donations of new books!  Please consider buying an extra book at the fair to donate to our school collection and help refresh our library!
