Call for donations

Shalom families,

As Shavuot approaches, OJCS is getting ready to celebrate. One of the things we have been doing as a school is an annual food drive in support of the Ottawa Kosher Food Bank. Please click here for more information about this wonderful organization in our community.

This year, they are asking primarily for donations of paper towels, instant coffee, crackers, canned salmon and tuna, and canned vegetables. We are collecting donations (in our classroom) up until June 10th.

Thank you so much for your support!

Upcoming events

Shalom JK families!

We had such a lovely time yesterday with all of our special visitors yesterday morning for generations day, we hope they come back and visit soon!

We have a busy schedule over the next two weeks so here are some important dates and reminders:

  • In honour of Shavuot, OJCS is compiling a recipe book. JK is responsible for desserts so please send in/email your family’s most favourite dairy or pareve desserts! Cite your source if it’s from a website or cookbook!
  • Friday, May 19: Dress down day! JK has decided to have a PJ day, so wear your cozy pjs, bring a stuffy (as long as it fits in your backpack), and some friends even want to wear their slippers as indoor shoes!
  • Monday, May 22: NO SCHOOL┬áVictoria Day
  • Thursday, May 25: DAIRY DAY in honour of Shavuot we are having an assembly with a special dairy treat! We are also collecting donations of food items for the Ottawa Kosher Food Bank. Please see flyer below for more details.

Please remember to send your child dressed appropriately for the weather, which includes a light jacket or sweatshirt, rain gear if needed, a sun hat, and please consider applying sunscreen in the morning. You can also send in sunscreen for your child to reapply before we go out later in the day.
