Testimonials:

Trevor’s last workshop at Runnymede PS had a record turn out, and response from Runnymede parents was overwhelmingly positive.  Here is what some had to say about Trevor’s workshop:

“Mr. Brown was a great speaker and I feel a lot more confident in supporting my grade 1 in math. Thank you!!!”

“I think this was IMMENSELY valuable for bringing the gap between TODAY’S math homework versus what we were historically taught with a completely different mindset  (and UNDERSTANDING WHY!!!!)”

Fall Yard Day is this Saturday!

Join Us for Fall Yard Day, 9 am – 12:00 pm

Runnymede families are welcome to come and join in this great RPS tradition!

What is Fall Yard Day?
It is a school-based “community clean-up” morning where we weed and tidy the nature gardens/outdoor classroom at the school. We’ll collect litter, trim invasive plants and weeds, sweep and tidy. And to make it fun there are activities planned for the kids too! Apple peeling, and a nature craft will be set up in the Adventure Yard (rear of school). We’ll also have nut-free baking snacks to share, and coffee for the grown ups!  Stop by for an hour to help out, or come for the whole morning!

What should I bring to Fall Yard Day?
You can bring a broom, gardening snips, nut-free baking to share, and reusable coffee cups and water bottles. We will have some gardening tools on-hand, as well as gardening gloves that you can borrow.
