Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer, non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

St. John Catholic Elementary School in Perth is a proud recipient of a 2010 Let Them Be Kids "Believe" Award! Every dollar raised by our community will be matched by Let Them Be Kids
to build a much needed playground at St. John's!

Thank you Lanark County CAS staff!

Last week, St. John’s Playground Committee Chair, Diane Jackson, had a chat with her cousin, Angie, who works for the local chapter of the Children’s Aid Society (CAS). Diane told her cousin about our project to build St. John’s an amazing new school yard.

Within just a few days, Angie called Diane to tell her that the staff of the Lanark County CAS were excited about St. John’s getting a new playground, and that they had taken up a collection among the staff to make a donation! Wow! We are thrilled and thankful to all of the generous CAS staff members. These individuals not only give to our community through their challenging and important work each day on the job, but they also find another way to support local children by helping to build St. John’s new playground.

Everyone here at St. John’s would like to thank these kind folks at the Lanark County CAS! We are lucky to have you supporting children in our area in so many ways. A heartfelt thanks to CAS staff Christina Campbell, Erin Higgins, Marilyn Ranger, Pam Mullin, Laurie Laden, Lesley MacPherson-Hojka, Alex Ferrier, Stacey Lambkin, Cindy Griffith, Lea Anne Brash, Doris McCue, Katrina Graham and Angie Riopelle.

We are also thrilled that the Lanark County Children's Aid Society will also be contributing $250 as an organization to the St. John Playground Build!  Thank you greatly for your generosity Lanark County CAS!

We continue to be in awe of all the people in our local community who inspire us in so many ways! God bless you all!
