Book Fair 2022
Our book fair returned in 2022 after the Pandemic hiatus and our volunteers put together a great day on Saturday, October 29th for students and community members to browse through some great titles and add to their home libraries. We also had a bake sale and pumpkin sale! $993 was raised and all proceeds go towards School Council initiatives to support PPPS. 

Outdoor Classroom Project 

We started our Outdoor Education Initiatives in 2020 to give our students a safer, more dynamic place to learn outside. Our school is also facing enrolment pressures and the Outdoor Classroom will add a much needed additional learning space for students. Now, we are just $10,000 away from our $64,000 goal for a 30-person Outdoor Classroom at PPPS.

We reached out to our community and raised almost $30,000 so far, and the OCDSB will match us dollar to dollar up to $25,000

  • $15,000 grant from the Desjardins Ontario Credit Union
  • $1,000 grant from Walmart Canada
  • $4,234.57 from parent/guardian donations
  • $9,000 from School Council fundraising

We are aiming to install the Outdoor Classroom in summer 2023, and must secure funds by the end of March 2023. Our awesome classroom will include log and rock seating, a stage and blackboard and seating for 30 students. With our overcrowded school at 150% capacity and 9 portables, the outdoor classroom has the added benefit of increasing our learning areas at the school.

We are so close to our goal! Just $10,000 left to go. Please donate below or if you know a business that may want to help, please share this with them or contact us at [email protected]
