You Ask…We Answer!

This year we haven’t had very much ‘Facetime’ with our community and we are looking for ways to connect. One of the ways we want to communicate is by answering questions that you may have. If you are wondering, chances are that others are too! Ms. Cameron and Mr. McLean are collecting your questions about Day to Day things at school, the YRDSB, COVID related questions, general trivia about the world or fun facts about staff at BPS. We will be posting video responses to these questions over the next few weeks. IF you have a question that you would like answered, please complete this google form by Friday December 4 : https://forms.gle/o75KPpceXJ3QS6Gv9

Please note that if we are unable to respond to your question in a video, we will respond to your questions via email or telephone.

Toy Mountain

Hi Bakersfield!

As you may know, every year we take part in CTV’s Toy Mountain and help collect gifts for those in need to help make the holiday a little brighter.  This year due to the pandemic they are not doing any ‘in person live events’ on TV like they usually do, but we can still help out.  In fact –  the need is even greater this year! 

So let’s show them why we are Bakersfield Proud!  Let’s build a mountain of toys and support the Salvation Army to bring smiles to the faces of hundreds of thousands of children and teens.  

We will be collecting Toys in the school office so please send NEW UNWRAPPED TOYS with your child to school to be dropped off.  We will take pictures and send them into CTV so they may be featured on the news!  If you want you can also make donations online https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/toy-mountain.

We will also be doing a TOY MOUNTAIN “DRIVE THRU” DROP OFF ON SUNDAY DECEMBER 13TH FROM 1-3PM.

You can drive through the bus loop and drop off toys to volunteers from School Council.  We will be inviting the community to take part as well.  

We will be bringing the school together for a number of virtual events.  More on that to come!  If you have any ideas or want to be part of the planning for the events please email Elyce, Sarah or Naomi your Co-Chairs!   Thank you all!
