Deadline to Purchase School Clothing

Dear Parents, 

Every year we get requests from families to purchase school clothing for their children. Below is link to our online clothing store, we are also sending home a paper order form today. You can order school clothing either by filling out the form and sending payment to the school, or by going to our online store and ordering clothing there. The address for the online store is: https://northstarsports.com/ecole-barrie-wilson-elementary-2019/20/ 

When you look at the options available for school clothing, you will notice that this year we are selling a special “Team Lewis” shirt as well as the school hoodies. Lewis Cano is a student in Mrs. Coghlin’s grade one class. Unfortunately, Lewis was diagnosed this summer with Leukemia. This diagnosis will mean that for the next few months Lewis and his family will be travelling back and forth to Calgary for treatment. Lewis will not be able to attend school regularly during this time. As a way to support Lewis and his family  we are selling“Team Lewis” t-shirts. A portion of all sales will go towards a fund that will pay for anything that Lewis may need as he undergoes treatment. Anyone who orders a Team Lewis shirt will receive it in time to wear at our annual Terry Fox Run on Wednesday October 9th. On that day we are encouraging all students to either wear a Team Lewis shirt or wear blue (which is his favourite colour). We want to show Lewis that we are all behind him as he gets treatment so that he can return to school. Parents, family and friends are also welcome to support Lewis and his family by purchasing a Team Lewis shirt and wearing it on October 9th.

All of us here at Barrie Wilson are sending all of our positive thoughts and energy to Lewis and his family. We are looking forward to having him return to school regularly in a few months.

 

Sincerely,

 

Chris Good
