As we enter summer holidays, we want to express our sincerest appreciation to all the staff, students and
families. Each of you has played a vital role in making our school year a significant success as we prioritized student safety and wellbeing. It has been a pleasure working with you this year. The commitment and dedication of staff, parents and students at Runnymede PS allows us to continue to grow academically, socially and emotionally. We would also like to thank all our wonderful volunteers and our School Advisory Council for their generous donation of time, care and commitment to our school community! It is GREATLY appreciated!

Even though we were in pandemic mode, many amazing things continued to happen year long at
Runnymede PS! We had dance presentations, track & field, softball, many field trips, guest presenters and excursions both in-person and remote, learning from and in nature, community events, Lego & Robotics, library helpers, intramurals, Kinder Welcome, Grade 8 graduation festivities and much more! Throughout all of this, as a staff, we built relationships with students and fostered a safe and caring environment, recognizing the importance of providing opportunities that are engaging for all our students.

In August, we will send an email to parents with your child(ren)’s class room and entry door number. On the first day of school (September 7th, 2022), families and students are asked to make their way to their
appropriate location on the Runnymede yard where teachers will be holding signs with classroom numbers. All staff will be available to help students find their placements. Once students know their placements, they will line up by their posted class sign where they will be welcomed and received by their assigned teacher and entry to the school will follow and a new year of learning will commence!
On behalf of the Runnymede staff, we appreciate your support and collaboration. We wish you all a
wonderful summer break and we look forward to seeing you all in September.
Take good care!

June Concert : We are so proud of our students’ instrumental performance at this concert given the
very restricted timeline that was available to their learning this year. Most importantly, it is nice to see the
focus and effort the children of Runnymede have displayed this year be allowed to shine in the public eye. CLICK TO WATCH

We would like to thank our school council volunteers for the countless hours fundraising for student
enrichment, planning school community initiatives and representing the school community. Special
thank you to our School Council Co-Chairs: Erin Meana and Andrea Santos and the Executive. We
would not be able to provide so many enrichment opportunities for our students without the support
of school council.
