Frozen Cookie Dough Fundraiser – Last day to order is TODAY!!

In an effort to fundraise for Grade 8 graduation festivities, we are selling frozen cookie dough. Made in Canada, Terra Cotta Cookie Company’s frozen cookie dough is completely peanut and nut free made in a peanut free and nut free facility. The cookie dough is all natural with no preservatives, trans fat free, no artificial flavours or colours. The cookie dough comes pre-portioned into dough drops, so no scooping or defrosting. Just place frozen dough drops on cookie sheet and bake.

Each box of frozen cookie dough has 40 cookies and is $13.50 a box.

Please note you can only place ONE order online. Please ensure to gather all of your orders from family and friends before you place your final online order below.

Dressing for the Weather

The winter weather has arrived much sooner than any of us expected, but the snow and cold air are here for the foreseeable future.  This is just a reminder that, except in very extreme cold temperatures, students will be going outside for one 20 minute recess in the morning and one 40 minute recess in the afternoon.  This means students need to come dressed appropriately to be out in whatever the weather is that day – warm coats, hats, mittens or gloves, boots and snowpants.  This will allow students to play safely outside and enjoy our Canadian winter.  Parents are also encouraged to send an extra pair of socks, mitts and/or pants as these items often get wet and cold in the winter months.

As per the YRDSB Extreme Cold Weather Guideline, when the temperature and/or wind chill are at -20 degrees Celsius or below, indoor recess will be considered.  When temperatures and/or wind chill reach minus 18-19 degrees Celsius, a shortened outdoor recess will be considered.

Social Justice Day at VPPS!
