Yard Day a Great Success – Thank You to All our Volunteers

Kids at Yard DayThe Runnymede P.S. Community did an amazing job making Fall Yard Day a tree-mendous success this year!
This Fall Yard Day was an extra special one, as we were also celebrating the 20th anniversary of our Hillside Garden. This nature garden is a truly special part of our school, admired across the TDSB and beyond. And it needs the help of volunteers to keep it vibrant. That is what Yard Day was all about: a community gathering to maintain and improve the Hillside Garden and schoolyard.
Community at WorkA great deal was accomplished on Yard Day: we built retaining walls to curb erosion, removed invasive plants, made major progress in the Kinder-Garden, planted bulbs and did a bunch of general tidying. There were so many families at Yard Day this year that we almost didn’t have enough work to go around! Thank you very, very much for helping to keep our school environment beautiful.
Community VolunteersThe Yard committee would like to also thank the Arts & Enrichment and Spirit committees for helping to make Yard Day bigger and better this year.
The hard work coupled with the fun and community spirit make Yard Day a wonderful, cherished Runnymede tradition. Here’s to the next 20 years!
