POINSETTIA FUNDRAISER - Poinsettia order forms have gone home and the due date for orders, is Monday, November 28. Thank you for supporting our school in this fundraiser!

PAC FUNDRAISING - Midway/Greenwood PAC is fundraising with Purdy's Chocolatier, just in time for Christmas! If you’d like to support us through purchasing some very sweet Christmas gifts for friends, family and yourself, you can register to shop at this link. After you’ve logged in or registered for an account, you can use the Shop Online tab to buy some amazing chocolates or invite other members to join and support our fundraiser.

Did you know, you can also support the fundraising efforts of your PAC, just by buying groceries at Overwaitea? There is no extra out-of-pocket cost to you! Simply buy an Overwaitea gift card (mention that it is to support Greenwood/Midway Elementary PAC), then use your gift card to pay for your groceries! 5% of all gift card sales goes directly back to the students (field trips, special guests, and more). What a great way to help our school raise money!

CHRISTMAS CONCERT - Our Christmas concert this year is "How to Train Your Reindeer." It will be held at GES on Thursday, December 15, at 6:00pm.

WINTER VACATION - The last day of school before winter vacation is Thursday, December 22nd. Students return back to school on Monday, January 9, 2017.

THANK YOU to everyone for your continued and ongoing support of our fundraising efforts - our 2016 Victoria trip was AMAZING! We are now planning for the 2018 field trip.
