Students will be going outside to play according to a schedule being created by the OPAL Lead Team. We are asking that parents ensure students are prepared for outdoor play that day (e.g. hat, sunscreen, bottle of water etc.), including having a change of clothes, as there will be water play.
Thanks to everyone who came out this morning for our annual Bike, Walk and Roll to School event. The rain held out it was great fun for all. Thanks to U of T’s Bike Chain for providing bike tune-ups, to Riders Cycle and Board for the super obstacle course and to our Community Officers for teaching us about road safety. Thank you as well as to the many local businesses, including Carmen’s City Market, Starbucks, Blue Banana, Wanda’s Pie in the Sky, Second Cup, and Sweet Pete’s, who supported the event through donations of food and raffle items.
Finally, a big shout out to Sarah Warden and the many parent volunteers who brought snacks and helped set up, run, and clean up the event.
What a great celebration of sustainable and healthy transportation!
