Service Opportunities – February 27

A group of students from the Junior School will be here on campus on Thursday, March 12, for a small day camp. They are looking for students from the Senior School who want to volunteer to hang out and have fun with them!

Students are between 5 and 10 years old and will be here between 10 am and 3 pm. Do you have a skill you want to share? Do you want to help with crafts? Maybe do some buddy reading? Do an impromptu jam session? Set up a board game cafe? The options are endless! You can come out for a small part of the day – whatever works for you!

If you are interested please email Ms. Shihadeh at [email protected]. She can chat  with you to find something that works.

The James Bay Community Market is an open air, rain or shine market operating on the corner of Menzies and Superior in James Bay every Saturday from May 2 to September 26 from 9 am to 3 pm.
