Christmas Cheer Cheer<p>​</p><p>Once again the holiday season is upon us and the Ardagh Bluffs community is being called upon to display that generosity that we are known for. The Barrie and District Christmas Cheer Association will be collecting new unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items to assist families in our city who are experiencing a difficult time this season. Last year our contributions helped more than 1800 Barrie families to have a brighter holiday.</p><p style="text-align:center;"> </p><p>Here at Ardagh Bluffs P.S. our Christmas Cheer train will once again be rolling through the front foyer in hopes of getting filled. </p><p> </p><p>From  November 28th  -  December 13th  we will be accepting donations. If donating non-perishable food items, please check the expiration date. Expired foods cannot be given out. </p><p> </p><p> In addition, we will be decorating our holiday tree with the donations of new scarves, hats and mittens of all sizes.  While out doing your own holiday shopping, please consider giving generously to the Christmas Cheer Campaign. </p>
Talent Show Show<p>​</p><p> </p><p>This year Ardagh Bluffs students will be performing in a school wide talent show.  Students from Grades 2 - 8 have signed up to perform.  We have a wide range of talent within our school, from singing to dancing to musicians.  Our students have been rehearsing and practising and will soon be ready to perform.  We are so proud of all the students who want to share their talents with the community! Due to the overwhelming number of students who wanted to participate in "Ardagh's Got Talent" this year, we have had to create 3 separate shows. On December 13<sup>th</sup>, there will be a Morning Show from 9:05-10:35am, an afternoon show from 11:25 am to 12:55 pm, and an evening show from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. A letter will be coming home with your child to indicate which show they will be performing in. Ticket order forms will be sent home with participants soon. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Please join us on:</strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Tuesday, December 13</strong><strong><sup>th</sup></strong><strong> from 6:30-8pm</strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>For "Ardagh's Got Talent" Show</strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>$$$ Donation at the Door</strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Non-Perishable Food Items accepted at door!</strong></p><p> </p><p>If you do not have a student in the show but would still like to attend, please contact Mrs. Hambrook at <a href=""><span style="text-decoration:underline;"></span></a>.
