For the last couple of years, the whole school has participated in a skating day at East York Arena. This is a fun opportunity for community building and exercise in memory of Mr. Moulds, a beloved St. Brigid’s teacher and hockey coach who worked to give all kids at our school a chance to experience the joy of skating.
Classes will be assigned different timeslots (coming soon), and the school asks for lots of parent volunteers on the day of to help tie skates, walk older classes to and from the rink, do setup/run/cleanup of the skate library for those who need skates, help supervise kids on the rink, and help with making and serving hot chocolate.
We also have a number of tasks that need to be done ahead of time, including organizing/checking skate condition, picking up extra skates and helmets from our school skating partner (Gledhill), and making a fun skating playlist.
Please mark your calendars for TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2019, and let us know through our Contact Us page if you can help on or before that date. Let’s make this the best skate day yet!
**If you have any skates or helmets to donate to the St. Brigid lending library, please send them to the office. We especially need helmets that are larger than XS. Thanks!**
