What a lovely time of year… even though it is hard to believe as I look out my window today, spring weather is definitely around the corner. If you remember way back to September, you will recall I surveyed the staff, parents, guardians and students about Brant Avenue Public School. Amongst all the wonderful positive feedback that was provided, the school community consistently requested more equipment on the school ground. Our School Council has been working diligently on this goal for several years and this year has made some giant leaps toward achieving this goal. As noted in our last newsletter, The Ladies Auxiliary of the Guelph Legion made an extremely generous donation of $3,000 toward our school yard improvement fund. Skyjack has also recently made a donation of $100. We ran a very successful Fudge Fund-Raiser just prior to Christmas and this spring will be doing a final fund-raiser in the hopes of being able to make a purchase over the summer or early fall of some new playground equipment. Please stay tuned for details.
In the meantime, please continue to support the School Council’s efforts on behalf of our students. Our next meeting is April 4th at 6:30 pm right here at the school and all are welcome, even if you have never attended before.
Have a wonderful long weekend with your children. Enjoy the time together.
