It is said that when March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. Perhaps if March comes in freezing (like it did), it'll go out thawing (one can hope?)!
March means SPRING BREAK! Holidays on beaches and midwinter tans. Scrabbling for childcare or entertainment to survive those days. But, have no fear... if you are looking for something to do, YK Playgroup is here!!
Or, more specifically, the Yellowknife Playgroup will be renting a field at the Fieldhouse on the Monday and Friday mornings of March Break. Bring all the kids and let them run, Run, RUN off that feverish energy and boredom.
Monday, March 17
Friday, March 21
Monday, March 24
Friday, March 28
Just $2 per child (babies under 6 months & Caregivers are free). Snacks are not provided, but you are welcome to enjoy a picnic off the field. Indoor shoes are requested to protect feet in case of a fire emergency.
We'll bring the bouncy house and some other active toys. Feel free to bring your own ride-ons or active toys to share!
We are beginning to roll out our new fundraising opportunity. Above you will note the new Fundscrip banner. If you click, it will take you directly to a sign-in page. This is Playgroup's newest fundraising opportunity. When you purchase a "gift card" through Fundscrip, the company will donate a certain % to our account.
For example: purchasing an Independent Gift Card will give us a donation equal to 3% of the card amount. The card is money at the grocery store when you buy your groceries. Win - Win!!
There are many cards we can use for local, or online shopping. There are many cards you can give as gifts or use when you head south. You don't even have to be active with Playgroup to participate, you can encourage Grandparents or friends to help out.
Try it... the funds raised will help us acquire new toys, rent space, and continue to make playgroup a resource for families in Yellowknife. For more information ask your Coordinator....
Next:TBA (we apologise for the short notice, but this meeting must be reworked due to conflicting schedules)
Come on out and find out the down and dirty of what makes Playgroup tick. Anyone is welcome to attend and offer suggestions, advice or assistance. Many hands make light work. IF you are unable to attend but would like to bring something to the Board's attention, send us an e-mail and we'll bring it up on your behalf; firstname.lastname@example.org
*WE are seeking volunteers to be substitute coordinators in April....
One of our Coordinators will be away between March 24th and May 3rd, and we are hoping to find some interested persons who would sign-up to sub at the Church sessions once or even twice during that period... IF you can, you qualify as a Substitute Coordinator! Substitute Coordinators bring their children to session for FREE!! (if you would like to know more, ask one of our friendly Coordinators). It is not a lot of effort and EVERYONE benefits!!! Watch for the Sign-up Sheet. Go ahead... give it a go!
A special Thank you to those who have already volunteered!
