Usborne book fair – Dec 1st to 3rd

Hello University Hill community! 
It’s Jorden, your teacher librarian calling. I am so pleased to announce that Usborne will coming back to UHill to do a three-day book fair this year! We haven’t had the book fair here for two years due to obvious pandemic protocols. With that said, we are really excited to bring the fair back for you and your children to explore new titles, flip through new activity books and of course to check out some great gift ideas for the holidays. The fair will begin the morning of Dec 1st (before school) through until Dec 3rd (after school) in the Multipurpose Room
I will forward reminders later this week and next with specific times you can come to the fair and pick up some fantastic books and gifts for the holidays. Also, every book purchased by our community goes towards books for the school library.
We look forward to seeing you at the fair! 
Cheers,

Dear UHill Community,

PAC are very excited to announce the opening of the ‘School Spirit’ Store!!  This means T’s and Hoodies are ready for you to order from the online store from now until 31st October only!

Gildan Youth Ultra Cotton 100% Cotton T-Shirt - Youth Bundle Item-titleGildan Youth Heavy Blend Hooded Sweatshirt - Youth Bundle Item-titleGildan Heavy Blend Hooded Sweatshirt - Adult Bundle Item-title

Hoodies are available in Red, Dark Heather (Grey) and adult sizes include Navy as well. 

You will see our familiar UHill logo on the shirts and hoodies with our school mascot the Coyote!

We are thrilled to be running this popular fundraising event again and have created two options for parents to purchase 

You can buy items ‘Individually’ OR get a great deal on a Hoodie and T shirt ‘Bundle’ which offers great savings. It is important to us that every child who wants a shirt can access one so if you are having financial difficulties please reach out to Corinna in the office (cjoyce@vsb.bc.ca) so we can make that possible.

We have also added masks this year but please note these are ADULT ONE SIZE so only suitable for older children/parents who want to show their school spirit. 

You may have seen many parents wearing the adult sized T’s and hoodies around school and the neighbourhood, these items are for ALL our UHill community so please feel free to purchase anything for yourself too.

We are hoping to have the shirts back in school by the first week in December. We cannot wait to see all the students in their T’s and Hoodies and to see the amazing School Spirit this event always brings! 

Click on the link below to access the store. The size chart link is on the size selection page and if in doubt always size UP, for parents who have ordered before please note it is a different brand this year so do check the sizing guide just to be sure.

When ordering, please write your child’s division number next to their last name to simplify sorting and distribution.
