Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our students and staff have been very fortunate to have had so many volunteers supporting the various academic, athletic and cultural events that have taken place throughout the year. To recognize the importance of your support, we are hosting a Volunteer Luncheon on April 13th between 12:00 am -1:15 pm. We sincerely hope that you will join us, so that as a school community, we may have the opportunity to recognize and celebrate your „gift of time‟. Your support of our students and programs is very important to us, and as such, we are very pleased to have this opportunity to thank you. Your contribution, big or small, is truly appreciated and has made a significant difference to our school. We sincerely hope therefore that you will join us. Reminder that our grade 8 students will be traveling to Horton by bus on Thursday, April 7th to participate in an Orientation Day. We will be leaving WS at 8:30 sharp and arrive back around 1:00pm.
Tickets are available at the Wolfville Save-Easy or from any Mud Creek Rotarian. Contact Rob Porter at 542-4128 or Neil Burgess at firstname.lastname@example.org .

HOME AND SCHOOL CORNER
FROM THE OFFICE OF RUTH MCLEOD The Breakfast Club is looking for new volunteers. During the school year, we have had many Acadia students volunteer at our Breakfast Club. Many of these students will leave the area at the end of April. I am looking for Breakfast Club volunteers for the months of May and June. If you are available from 8:00 to 8:30 am, please call me at 542-6051. FROM THE OFFICE OF PAUL VEINOTTE Hygiene It is important for students and parents to be aware of the need to be clean at school! Body Odor can be serious and make things difficult for students. Here are some tips to remember: - Students’ aged 10 and up should begin showering or bathing once a day. Younger children can often shower or bath every other day, depending on their activity level. - It is important to use soap and not just duck under the water briefly. - Hair produces oil, so it is important to wash it. Hair can be very different; some hair produces more oil than others and will need to be cleaned more often than hair that doesn’t produce a lot of oil. - Adolescents should begin using deodorant to help prevent body odour. - Students should try to wear clean clothes each day. Even if your child wants to wear that favourite sweater all week, it needs to be washed! - Everyone should brush and floss their teeth. Brushing should be at least twice a day. MATH ON COMPETITION Congratulations go out to all of the students who competed in the Math on Competition. The students had some very challenging questions to complete but rose to the occasion. Ena Brennan and Mira Tan placed first in their category while Reilley Perrins and John Campbell came in third. As well, thanks to the many students who volunteered at the competition. All of you helped the competition run smoothly and were wonderful ambassadors of Wolfville School. After all of the scores were compiled for teams in grades 7 – 9, Wolfville School was announced the winter of the 2011 Math on Olympiad. WELL DONE AND MATH ON! Angie Rushton HOP for MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY - Elementary On April 20, Wolfville School will be doing a fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy. Students are welcome to wear their best bunny face to school as we hop to raise money for the Cure to eliminate this neuromuscular disorder. The elementary will be doing some hopping activities in the morning in support of this worthwhile cause. Students are welcome to bring any donations of change to support this cause. Thanks for your support.

L.I.F.E.: Learning Is For Everyone
The Wolfville School L.I.F.E. benevolent fund supports the principle that all students should have the opportunity to participate fully in school. School budgets are limited. As a result, schools are not able to meet the needs of all students. The L.I.F.E. fund may be used in support of our philosophy that “No Student Should Go Hungry” or to ensure that no student is prevented from participating fully in their class or school-based experience because they don‟t have the proper supplies or necessary resources. It provides financial support to address specific student needs related to learning.
