A school playground allows children to learn and socialize through play while outdoors. Our playground is well used by the 500+ students attending Parkview Public School, as well as other children and families living and visiting the Unionville community. The goal of our School Council project is to raise funds for some new equipment for the playground. The funds raised will be used for the purchase of the equipment and plants for the area; and their installation and planting. Currently, we have submitted our playground idea in hopes of obtaining funds however we need, your help!!

In November 2018, the York Region District School Board will invite all students to participate in the Every Student Counts Survey (ESCS). The purpose of this census survey is to better understand YRDSB’s diverse student population as well as students’ experiences in school and outside of school. In November, a school letter will be sent home (to families of students in grades 1-6) with a link to the online survey along with instructions. Our students in Grades 7&8 will be invited to complete the survey online during class time.
