This week, St. John's School received a beautiful letter in the mail with a cheque for $240 to help support our playground build. The money raised was from students at Rideau Vista School in Westport, who won a Let Them Be Kids Award last year and transformed their own school yard.
For several weeks, the students at Rideau Vista sold cupcakes and raffled off Senators memorabilia. They raised enough money to give all schools in the region - St. John's , Chimo, and VanCleek Hill - each $240 towards their individual Let Them Be Kids playground projects. What a wonderful way of giving back. We extend our deepest gratitude to Rideau Vista School!
