April Parent Workshop: PRO Grant

The April Parents’ Evening was a success. We had great community involvement including support from Parks & Recreation, the Gerrard-Ashdale Library, Applegrove and East End Health Centre. We had businesses donating great door prizes and discounted food including Rakia Bar who provided appetizers and The Famous who provided Samosas and Pakoras. Thank you to all for their continued support of our events. We had about 40 parents in attendance, and well over 50 children!
