This is an after school club for students in Division 1 (Mrs. McIndoe) & Division 2 (Mr. Gervais & Ms. Holmes) from 2:40-3:10 on Wednesday afternoons in the music room. The first club is Wednesday 16th January and the last club will be Wednesday 13th March.
It has been a wonderful, crazy, busy, happy, exhausting, fun and colorful month here at Willway. We want to send a heartfelt thank you out to parents, students and the community for the generous food bank donations. We raised $350.00 from our Christmas Shop that we have given to the Goldstream Foodbank and over 1200 food items were brought in. Our goal was 300 items so it was far surpassed because of the generous donations from you. We also raised about 500 dollars towards the wireless speaker and mic system we would like to purchase for the school and we will continue to fundraise as they are about five thousand dollars.
As you head into the holidays with your loved ones, take time to play a board game or walk the neighborhood to look at the lights. It is such a busy and rushed time of year and when we slow down to breathe and appreciate what’s around us that is when the true spirit of the season is found. From all of us over at Willway to all of you- Happy Holidays! See you in 2019!
We had a great first day at the Christmas shop. Tomorrow will be the last day. ALL items are $1.00 with proceeds going to the Goldstream foodbank.
We are still looking for donations for the Christmas Shoppe. It will open next week on Monday and Tuesday. As it is right now we do not have enough donations to run the Shoppe. The students really loved it last year, so it would be very unfortunate to have to cancel. Please check the back of your cupboards/shelves/closets for new or gently used items. We will also need gift bags, tissue or wrapping paper. (Gift bags are much quicker and easier).
Any questions just ask: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s that wonderful time of year again! Our Willway concerts will be happening tomorrow afternoon and evening. Admittance is by cash donation to the music program (for a wireless sound system) and/or a non-perishable food item for the foodbank.

The Christmas Shoppe will be back at Willway December 17th-18th!!
The intention of the Shoppe is for students to be able to surprise the special adults in their lives with a wonderful Christmas gift. Items are donated by friends and family of Willway and will be sold in our Shoppe for $1.00 or $2.00. Proceeds will be donated to the Local food bank as a monetary donation.
We are now accepting donations for our 2nd Annual Christmas Shoppe.
Please send in gently used items, or new things you may want to re-gift, that would make an appropriate gift for an adult for both Men and Women (no toys please).
**We will also be looking for volunteer wrappers.**
