DANCE-A-THON – Wednesday, October 31st

All Roden and Equinox students are encouraged to move, dance, jump and have fun at the Halloween dance-a-thon fundraiser in the school gym. It’s a great way to stay fit while supporting your school. Funds raised from both schools will go towards new gym equipment and literacy supplies.

Your child should have received a Halloween dance-a-thon pledge envelope in their school bag. Extra pledge envelopes are available in the front office. Tax receipts for cash or cheque donations may be issued for donations over $25 if requested. TDSB requires the donor’s contact information (address, name and telephone number) to issue the tax receipt – please make cheques payable to Roden Public School.

Online donations are also accepted. Click here to make an online donation. Select Roden Public School from the drop down menu. Please add a note in the message section that the donation is for the “Halloween Dance-a-thon Fundraiser.” Online donations over $25 automatically receive a tax receipt, printable immediately.

All students are welcome to participate in the dance-a-thon regardless if they have pledges or not. Halloween costumes are encouraged, but not required.

 Dance-a-thon Schedule 

  • 9:15 am – Grades 3 & 4
  • 10:30 am – Kindergarten
  • 11:00 am – Grades 1 & 2
  • 1:00 pm – Grades 5 & 6
  • 2:00 pm – Grades 7 & 8

If you have preschoolers in the family, consider bringing them to the Early ON centre in the morning too, as their usual gym session at 10am will be replaced by a chance to join in the party!

Please try to return your pledge envelope and donations on or before the day of the event itself. Thank you for your support.

Cultural Enrichment

Last year’s Summer Send Off raised over $6,000 towards cultural enrichment experiences for our students. Again, keep an eye out on Facebook and around school for more information about the presentations and performances which we’ll bring to students over the coming year!
