Hoot and Howl Time!

Hey Pape Parents!

The kids’ favourite time of year is here – the Hoot and Howl is just a week away!   We have so much fun stuff planned for this year!

Make sure your kids’ costumes are ready – we’re bringing back the Best Costume Contest this year with some fun prizes!  There will be a few categories which we’ll announce in the next few days.

We’re hoping for some good weather this year so we can have our fun outdoor activities – bouncy slide, bouncy castle and the super-exciting Zorb races!  You know, those human hamster balls… it’s gonna be great!

We still need a few more volunteers to make this day happen – please go to the volunteer sign-up and put your name down for a shift.  We only need two hours of your time!  It will make the day so much better for the kids, and you’ll have fun too!

Also – we need some unused toys for the toy raffle and the prize table.  If you have any unwrapped toys hanging around that you don’t know what to do with, we’ll take ’em.  And also smaller, loot bag-type toys.  We can use them too!  Please drop them off in the office, or if that’s not convenient, send me an email – torrance26@sympatico.ca, and I can pick them up from you.

If you don’t have 2 hours of time on the day, please consider donating some baked goods (whether or not you baked them yourself!)  There is a sign-up page for that too!

Can’t wait to see you all next weekend!

Thanks for givin’ a Hoot!
