GSPA News - February 2021
GSPA is happy to share the following with families of Gwynne School:
- West Coast Seeds Fundraiser is closing on February 3. Be sure to get your last minute orders in. Keep in mind the school receives 40% of all proceeds. Visit fundraising.westcoastseeds.com to place an order.
- Thank you to the incredible volunteers who keep our rink in tip-top shape. The strong core of people who have spent countless hours flooding and prepping the ice are irreplaceable. We’ve heard that there has been increased community use of the rink this winter and hope that continues into February.
- The next GSPA Council meeting is Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Please mark your calendar and watch for the virtual meeting link. All school families are welcome to join.
- Council is awaiting the reopening of the Bingo hall to continue fundraising. We are hoping payouts continue to be strong after the re-launch.
- Last, but not least, a quick thanks to all the staff of Gwynne School, including teachers, support staff, custodians, and everyone in between, for working so hard to keep the students safe throughout the past months. Your dedication has allowed our kids a safe and consistent learning environment.
Take care and stay healthy,
Gwynne School Parents Association
GSPA West Coast Seed Fundraiser 2021
Gwynne School Families,
This year we are running a fundraiser with West Coast Seeds for the purpose of raising funds for Gwynne School Parent Association. We chose this fundraiser because we would like to promote a program that is environmentally friendly and promotes growing food.
