Our Lady Queen of Peace Ranch Donation Drive
Every year our school does a collection for Christmas to help the needy. This year we have chosen to support Our Lady Queen of Peace Ranch Donation. The Ranch invited low income children(0-16 years old) and their families from Edmonton and surrounding areas to a Christmas party they might not otherwise be able to afford.
Here is what we can do as a school: we are looking for donations from October 15th-October 26th of NEW toques, mitts, gloves, scarves, and hats.
Then on November 5th, Mr Russell and Mrs. Brodeurs grade 6 class will load the bus(donated by Bailey's busing) and deliver all the donating.
Thank you to everyone that donates to this wonderful Ranch

Wee Read Volunteers
Be a Wee read volunteer
Mills Haven is pleased to announce that we are implementing an exciting new program called Wee Read. This eight-week program was designed by Alberta Reads (www.albertareadsnetwork.com) to help Kindergarten and Grade One children strengthen the foundations for reading and school success, and help children develop a love for books.
We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that support literacy skills. If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be, there will be volunteer training sessions held on October 15th (evening), October 16th (evening), October 17th (evening) and October 19 (afternoon). Please let Ms. Kihn -Rachel.Kihn@eips.ca - or the office know by Friday, October 12th if you can come to the training session.
Parking at Mills Haven Elementary
Ensuring our students get to school safely is everyone’s responsibility. Please be mindful of crosswalks, parking rules and speed limits when you’re near the school, especially during the morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal times. If you drive your child to school, make sure to review the map which indicates visitor parking, pickup and drop-off zones, where not to park and traffic flow directions. A larger map can be found in the documents section of our website.
NOTE: The area immediately at the front of the school is the bus zone—and a no parking area. Drop-off and pickup zones are located on Main Boulevard next to the playground and field. Meanwhile, visitor parking is located on across the street.
