Toonies for Terry Fox!!!

We are starting to collect “Toonies for Terry”!  Our challenge this year is to raise $500 for the Terry Fox Foundation.  We will be collecting toonies until Tuesday, September 29.  If every child brings in two loonies each we will meet our goal.  We will be participating in the Nationwide School Run Day!  You are welcome to come and join in our walk/run at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 30.  We will be having a celebration on October 1 to celebrate the change we have made for others that are fighting cancer. Thank you for helping us exceed our goal this year!

Adopt Our School

From September 14 to October 4, Parkland Village School is excited to be taking part in the Adopt-a-School-the -Indigo Love Reading Foundation’s Fundraising Program.  Adopt a school unites Indigo, Chapters and Coles Stores, the local schools they adopted and their communities to raise money for elementary-school libraries across Canada.

We need your help to make sure Parkland Village School raises enough money for our library.  All funds that are raised by P.V.S. will be used to buy new books for our library.  If you would like to adopt our school please choose one or more ways you would like to contribute from the 3 steps below.  Thank you for your support in helping us expand our library.
