Sparkling Tones will be at the Botha Christmas Dance

Botha floor curling held Thursdays at 1 p.m.

Tomorrow report cards will be sent home with your child. Then following this the parents/teachers interviews will be held on Nov. 23, so please keep this in mind. Also they will be doing the wide project in the p.m. Just a reminder there will be no school tomorrow Nov. 24, due to the interviews, the evening before, so hopefully everyone has a great and relaxing weekend.

This past Tuesday 21, the Grade 5/6 class attended their Junior Achievement visit.

Than on Wednesday 22, everyone from our Botha School headed to Erskine for the country presentation from the magician Steve Harmer, which all the students enjoyed. We could like to thank all the parents that volunteered their time to come out and help out with this trip. Parents are always welcome to come on our field trips and can also ride on the bus with your child.

Nov. 26, head over to the Botha Hall at 1:30 p.m. for their Christmas dance with the “Sparkling Tones” band, who will be entertaining the group that afternoon. They hold a potluck luncheon at 5 p.m that evening, so they are asking all that attends to bring either sandwiches/buns, salad or desert with you to share at this luncheon. It’s a great time for everyone and there is no age limit on any of these dances except for the New Years dance,

Quilting happens on Monday 27 starting at 9:30 a.m so please come on down to the Senior Centre and join them.

On Wednesday 29 is the 10a Board meeting. So hopefully everyone involved can make it to this.

On Monday December 4, will be the very important senior meeting starting at 12 p.m. sharp, so they are hoping all seniors will be able to attend.

Turkey Bingo will be held the evening of December 6, starting at 7:15 p.m. sharp and doors are open at 6:30. This would always come in handy this time of year if you are one of the big winners, so make sure you come out that evening.

Floor curling is always held on Thursday afternoons at 1 p.m and everyone is very welcome to come and join in with the rest of the players, they would love to see you.
