We Need Your Help!

The annual Grenfell Walk-A-Thon is coming up.  This is an important fundraiser for our Parent Advisory Council where students run, walk, skip, roll etc. to help with enrichment programs at our school.  To encourage our students we would like to offer them many draw prizes as incentives.  We are looking for prizes to raffle off to students (the more prizes the better) who complete various challenges.  If a parent, staff or community member is able to contribute a prize please bring it to the office.  We ask that it be of a minimum value of $10, still unopened (please no used items) and age appropriate.  They can be toys, games, gift certificates, etc..  For the week leading up to the walk-a-thon we will be displaying these prizes in our display cases.  If you would like to and are able to support this let us know.

Planning for Next Year

Families and schools are currently planning for next year.  Many of you are looking forward to another year at Grenfell, however, some may be moving and transferring to other schools in the city or even farther away.  Please let us know of any change in plans for next year so that we can adjust class sizes and composition as we slowly piece together the school organization for the 2018-2019 school year.


Have a wonderful weekend,
