Thank you for participating,

The Card Project is back after a successful debut at Ross Road last December!
This is a creative fundraising opportunity for our school community, 25% of all sales goes to the school. Participating classes (a total of 10 this session) have already created their masterpieces which have been submitted to the Card Project.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
- Students create a unique piece of art and the original art is submitted for digital photography or scanning.
- A digital image is created and turned into a standard greeting card (4.5″ x 6″) including envelope.
- The student then receives a free sample card that displays their art on the front of the card and the back has their name, grade and title for the art.
- Ordering a box of cards is optional, a box set of 12 cards and envelopes is $20 plus applicable taxes.
- April 25th – sample cards delivered to students
- April 30th – orders due
- May 9th – box set of cards delivered to students (in time for Mother’s Day!)

What a fun month December was at Ross Road School! We kicked of the holiday season early with the amazing (and very profitable!) Christmas Craft Fair on November 30th, and wrapped up 2012 this week with four fantastic performances of Jingle All the Way and a festive sing-a-long on Friday afternoon. What a great way to start to the holiday season!
Hope you all have a happy and relaxing break! See you back at school on Monday, January 7th, 2013!

p.s. Recycle your corks! The Ross Road Knitting Club would really appreciate it if you could save your wine corks over the festive season! They will be used to make the knitted cork gnomes that were a popular item at the Christmas Craft Fair! Please drop them off in the box marked “Corks” under the “Down” stairs in the school lobby when school starts up again in 2013! Thank you!
As part of the Card Project, each student in participating classes made an original work of two-dimensional art and had it made into a professionally printed greeting card. Each family was then able to buy boxes of these personalized Christmas cards! How cool is that?
We had a tremendous response in card orders and Ross Road raised $1,000!
It was exciting to see such a variety of beautiful cards that can be shared with family and friends. Scroll down to see a selection of student art – one piece from each participating class.
Thank you to those students, staff and parents who participated by supporting this new fundraiser.
And thank you to Deborah Clegg, who spearheaded the project and managed it with great enthusiasm and professionalism!

This is a message from Ross Road School:
We are having our Remembrance Day assembly at 11 a.m. tomorrow and have asked any students who are involved with Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Sparks, etc. to wear their uniforms tomorrow.
We are also asking students to dress in appropriate clothing for a formal assembly.
Each student will be given a poppy and we are hoping that the students will bring a small donation for the collection tins from the Legion.
