May 31 – JE Spring Planting & Clean-up a success!

Many thanks to the families and community members who came out on Saturday morning to help make John English feel like a home away from home. Grasses, Black Eyed Susans, annuals and a selections of herbs and tomato plants were donated and planted by the numerous volunteers. The gardens were also pruned, weeded and fussed over and the playground got a tidying up with a sweep and rake of the figure eight track and sand pit.

A very productive day to say the least! A special thank-you to Georges Barber Shop (182 Royal York Road) for providing funds for flowers, tools and drinks. Also thank-you to Canadian Tire on The Queensway for the discount on the merchandise for the event.

All the best for a wonderful summer,

SAC Schoolyard Team
