Welcome (Back) To Runnymede!


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 hectic as our children settle into new classrooms with their new teachers, and we are here to help now and throughout the school year.  Look for Parent Council members at the Welcome Tent and in the school yard on the first day, we’ll be in our bright orange Runnymede t-shirts, ready to help you find your way.

We have a new Principal!  A warm welcome to Rob Hochberg, who returns to Runnymede as Principal after having spent the last few years as Principal at Twentieth Street Jr. School.  Rob was our VP several years ago, so his name and face may be familiar to some.  Council looks forward to continuing a strong partnership with Rob and his team on our many initiatives.

2016 has been a big year for the Runnymede! We held our big Centennial Fun Fair in the Spring, and completed our Centennial Playground Project fundraising campaign.  Thanks to your generous donations, construction is already under way. The climbing structures and basketball courts (Phase One) will be finished by Fall 2016, the painted play areas (Phase Two) will be finished by Spring 2017.

We cannot run a great Parent Council without great parents!  We have a number of Parent Rep and Council positions vacant, as current members have reached the end of their term.  Please take a look at some of the roles, and let us know how you can help with Parent Council this year.
