This year our Tumpane families and students raised $2984 for Jump Rope For Heart. Thank you to everyone who supported us with this fundraising event.
Thursday is our trip to Warren Park. We will be going, rain or shine, so be sure to come prepared for the weather. Students are asked to wear rain gear if it is raining (books, coats) and bring hats and running shoes if it is nice outside. Students should come wearing sunscreen and bug spray if parents wish to apply it before school.
Some other notes from Warren Park staff include: Wearing light-coloured long pants and light long-sleeved shirts protect against UV rays, mosquitoes (possible carriers of West Nile virus) and deer ticks (possible carriers of Lyme disease). Your experience at Warren Park will involve being outside so it is important, for your safety and enjoyment, to dress appropriately.
SOME HELPFUL HINTS….
☼ A hat will protect you from the heat and the sun, along with keeping you warm in the cooler
☼ Apply sunscreen and insect repellent at home before coming to Warren Park, allowing it to be
absorbed by your skin.
☼ The higher the S.P.F. of your sunscreen, the greater the protection from the sun’s harmful rays.

Please remember to pack a litter-less lunch for that day, with a no waste that isn’t biodegradable, as there will be no garbage facility on site. All materials should be recyclable, reusable or go in the compost bin.

Ice Dawgs will be on sale again next week. For only $2.00 your child can purchase a tasty ice cream and cookie treat. Proceeds from the sale will go towards supporting our Kindergarten field trip bus costs. The next sale date is Wednesday, June 6, 2018.
Tomorrow our class will be visiting Riverdale farm with some of the other Kindergarten students. Students are reminded to pack a lunch, wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle and come wearing sunscreen, a hat and bug spray.

Every year Tumpane has ice dawgs for sale for students to purchase. These are yummy, cool treats (an ice cream sandwich between two cookies) that children can purchase for $2.00. Ice Dawgs will be on sale Friday, June 1 and Wednesday June 6. Students will get to take them home at the end of the school day, so they won’t spoil their appetites at lunch time.
All proceeds for the school-wide sales will go towards paying for buses for our Kindergarten team’s final two field trips to Riverdale Farm and High Park. Please send your money to school on the day of the sale and
This week two trip forms went home for trips coming up in June. We have a total of three next month. The cost for each trip is $3.00, to help pay for the buses and our Kindergarten team is doing some additional fundraising to help cover the rest of the costs. Our trip dates are as follows:
Thursday, June 7, 2018 – Warren Park
Friday June 15, 2018 – Riverdale Farm
Friday June 22, 2018 – High Park
Students are spending a considerable amount of time out of doors at lunch time, during gym classes and drama class. We are asking parents to send students with hats, to protect them from the sun (sunglasses are optional). You are encouraged to put sunscreen on children before they come to school. We cannot apply after they arrive.
Tumpane’s next pizza day is Tuesday, May 15, 2018. All pizza forms are due on or before Thursday, May 10, 2018.
This week students are participating in the Jump Rope for Heart move-a-thin. On Thursday children will be jumping for charity, to raise money for the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.
