Dance-a-Thon was a Success!

Congratulations Stephen Leacock PS on your fabulous pledge collecting and DANCING! What a great event it was for the students! Our whole school was dancing!

Thank you to Amelia, our dedicated lead-parent volunteer, to our volunteer Kristen and to the SLPS office team for their help with the money counting and tracking. Thank you to our wonderful DJ Christina — what a workout she had, leading and coaching with some cool dance moves!

Over $12,000 were collected so far, with a few envelopes still to come. A final count will be announced later this month. Thank you! Merci!!

The wish list was prepared by the school team, and presented for discussion and approval at the School Council Meeting Tuesday February 19th. The $12,000 collected through the dance-a-thon, plus approximately $7,000 from the School Council funds were granted to support the school wishes.

Items approved by Council include:

  • Science workshops for kindergarten classes (Grade 1 to 6 had been granted earlier in the year)

  • Approximately $3,600 for a series of 3 dance workshops for all 22 classes

  • Approximately $4,000 for a series of 4 yoga and mindfulness workshops for all

  • 2 professional bilingual theatre presentations (one for Primary, one for Junior)

  • $2,500 – Coding robots be circulated between classes from Kinder to Grade 6

  • $1,500 – Gym, outdoor Phys. Ed and recess play equipment for all classes

  • $2,000 – New library books

  • Money was also allocated for field trip pinnies, new classroom speakers and to support coaches taking teams to the sports tournaments…


With your support, our students will benefit from these amazing additional resources and programs to enhance their educational experience at Stephen Leacock PS.

On behalf of the staff and all the students, we thank you!!

For financial accountability, and whether you collected pledges or not, please return all envelopes to school.
