50/50 Draw

Message from Parent’s Association

Greetings from the Parents for Gwynne School!  As we all know, the school year is in full swing and the new executive is settling into their roles.  The Parents have been busy with the following:

  • Hot lunches - Our awesome volunteers have organized some great hot lunches, with more to come. We would like to thank the sponsors who have donated and provided the opportunity to periodically offer free meals to the students, the most recent being Ember Resources for the December 11 pizza lunch; 
  • The Skating Rink upgrades are nearing the end. The dedicated volunteers committed many hours to the improvements.  Thank you to Encompass Credit Union for the grant which made the completion of this project possible;
  • The Purdy’s Chocolate Order was the most successful to date. Thank you to the parents who took the lead, placed and sorted the orders to ensure timely deliveries;
  • The Annual 50/50 raffle is rapidly approaching and tickets will be available shortly. The draw will be made December 18 at the Christmas Concert, 7:00 p.m. performance;
  • Upcoming Bingo - January 18, 2020 (afternoon), volunteers needed;
  • Upcoming Parent Council Meeting – Thursday, January 23, 6:00PM – Everyone welcome.

Lastly, thank you to the faculty which strives to provide a great learning environment for all our kids.  Recently, the Parent Council was made aware of several significant cuts to the WRPS budget which will undeniably create some challenges in the upcoming future.  Parent Council offers our utmost support to assist in the success of Gwynne School and are exploring some creative fundraising alternatives.  Stay tuned for future updates.  Until then, Go Falcons!
