Summer Plant Watering Families Needed!

Mme Leclerc, Mrs Roshi and the Eco Club students have been working hard all year to plant and maintain trees and plants in our school yard. There are hot, dry days ahead and families are needed to drop by the school yard over the summer and make sure our plants and young trees stay hydrated.

If you and your family can help with some of the watering, please email Mme Leclerc at chantal.leclerc@tdsb.on.ca
