A special thank you to all the Parkview families for supporting the multiple fundraising efforts in the school.  On Thursday $12 000 of raised funds were allocated to Kindergarten outdoor play equipment, cool down bins, microscopes, trips, math games, iPad adapters and more.  Everyone’s generosity is greatly appreciated!

A fantastic thank you to the families who  attended, the School Council and AJ for organizing the Lunar New Year Pot Luck.  It was an amazing evening.
