Welcome (back) to Runnymede 2015-16

On behalf of Runnymede Parent Council, we would like to extend our warmest welcome to all new families, and to those of you returning to Runnymede. Week One of school will be busy and hectic as our children settle into new classrooms with their new teachers, and we are here to help now and throughout the school year.

2015-2016 will be our biggest year yet, with the celebration of our Centennial in 2016! This school year will be filled with many opportunities to get involved with our Centennial celebration. As well, our Centennial Playground Project fundraising campaign will continue this year. Our campaign goal is $225,000 and we have already raised $175,000!! We will build on this amazing success with a Fall direct donation campaign for new Runnymede families, and some fun events throughout the year to celebrate the Centennial and contribute to our fundraising goal. The Centennial Playground Project fundraising replaces our annual per-child direct donation campaign for this year only.

New this year, there will be reps from every class on Council to help keep parents and Council well-connected. We are always looking for new parents to join Council and get involved! Our website www.runnymedecouncil.org is a great place to look for up-to-date information, so bookmark this site and visit it regularly. Our first Council meeting will take place Tuesday, September 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the School Library – we hope to see you there.
