Elementary School Weekly Update 21 November 2018
Posted 21-11-2018 02:55PM

Dear Parents,

Thanks to all of you who made it for our annual Sports Day event. We had a great time, and the children enjoyed laughing and playing together with their teachers and parents. A HUGE thanks to all the parent volunteers who braved the heat and sun to put on an amazing community event. I would also like to thank Ingrid Ferguson and Clinton Keet for their organisation of this event.

On behalf of the elementary faculty and staff, we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Re-Run Store Initiative

We are pleased to announce the beginning of a new community initiative called the ReRun Store. The Store will serve as a thrift shop of sorts, selling used items to members of the AISJ staff. These items may range from appliances to electronics to furniture (pots, pans, crockery, dishes, towels, sheets, toasters, to name a few). The store's inventory will consist entirely of donations. These are items that may be donated as a result of moving, spring cleaning, etc. As a result of their having been donated, the ReRun Store will be able to sell these items at a substantial discount, thus allowing the staff to purchase items at an affordable rate. The profit made by the ReRun Store will then be recycled back into the AISJ community. At this point, we are not taking clothes, but we are taking shoes.

Drop off point for items will be the main school parking lot by the Aquatics Center, between the hours of 7:00 am - 8:00 am every Thursday. I will be available to meet you with your donated items starting on Thursday, November 22.

If you are moving or spring cleaning and have something to donate, please let us know. You can contact Rhona Polonsky at rpolonsky@aisj-jhb.com.

At present, the ReRun Store will be in the Elementary room 21. The store will eventually be moved to a better location. Once we have a collection of items, we will open to the staff and publicize the times and dates of opening.

 

Thank you,

Rhona Polonsky and members of the ReRun Store!
