Runnymede Fun Run – Thursday June 14th

All students will be participating in a fun run to show their commitment to being active for themselves and for the local community.  This year Ogden school will be the focus of our support, to demonstrate how our children can be active in supporting others within their own TDSB community.

Send in your loonies and toonies!
We will be collecting money in front of the office and on race day. Let’s see how much our community can raise to help our neighbours!

Fun Run Times
All parents are welcome to come out on Thursday June 14th to cheer on Runnymede students! The fun run will follow a similar format to the Terry Fox Run:

Grade 1 and 2:      9:15 – 9:40 am
Grade 3, 4, 5:        9:55 – 10:35 am
Grade 6, 7, 8:        10:55 – 11:25 am
JK/SK:                    12:45 – 1pm

Ogden schoolThe Fun Run event is raising money to help support Ogden School, a TDSB school located in downtown Toronto. Ogden has a large immigrant and public housing population and previously benefited from some model funding, but they lost their model funding this year.

Money raised will be used to help purchase a basketball hoop for their playground and also to help with field trip assistance.  The Ogden Parent Council is very appreciative of Runnymede’s support.

Pizza Lunch 2018-19 Coordinators Needed

Pizza LunchPizza Lunch is everyone’s favourite Friday!

We need you to lend a hand for Grade 1-8 Pizza Lunch next year.  Here are the volunteer opportunities available:

Pizza Lead (8 hours in September and 4 hours monthly thereafter)
Primary coordinator of pizza lunch.  This role is heavy in September as the order site needs to go live (done by an outside supplier) and the bulk of the orders will come in at this time.  Each month involves updating new orders, fielding any parent issues, updating the order for both Pizza Pizza and the volunteer who prints pizza cards, ordering the plates and juice, communicating the order with Pizza Pizza catering and update month to reflect changing student orders. Supervise Pizza Lunch Day.

Volunteer coordinator (3-4 hours monthly)
Send out monthly email to solicit volunteers and ensure that enough people are available.  Assign jobs to volunteers.  Supervise volunteers on Pizza Lunch Day.

Veggies and Fruit Coordinator (45 minutes monthly)
Speak with Loblaws in early September to secure their continued support and provide dates.  Confirm each order a week in advance.  Pick-up order Friday morning of Pizza Lunch and deliver to the school.

Pizza Lunch is an important fundraiser for the school and is loved by both the kids and parents – it cannot continue without volunteer support.

If you can fill one of these roles please contact
