Principal’s Message – December 9th

Dear Queen Elizabeth School Community,

Winter Break is upon us! We hope everyone enjoys a much deserved break with family and friends. Please see the following information and calendar events as we head into our final week!

Young Entrepreneur Shows! – December 13, 14, 15

Our Grade 4 Young Entrepreneurs are ready to share their products and business plans at next week’s Young Entrepreneur Shows. Classrooms will be visiting in the afternoon on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the doors will be open to the public from 3:00 to 3:30 PM. Afterschool access will be from the West Side Gym Doors. We encourage students to bring some pocket change next week to pick up some great merchandise! Proceeds from the sale will cover business expenses, and a portion of the profits from each entrepreneur will be donated to the classroom’s charity of choice! Thank you to our teachers and our parent community for your support of this fantastic Financial Literacy Program.
