Hello everyone, happy, cold PA Day to all of you.  Staff are hard at work today at Boyne PS, we had a fabulous movie night last night in our gym and we wanted to send out this message early in the day to share our exciting news.

Earlier this week Boyne Public School received from the Halton Learning Foundation $3450 for our school.

Our staff completed Grant Applications and we were successful in three areas.

We are receiving :

$950 for mental health and wellness initiatives for our students.

$1000 for our Arts and Music program

$1500 for our Physical Education program.

We want you to help us say THANKS.

 

Halton Learning Foundation fundraising Dinner by Paramount

The Halton Learning Foundation (HLF) is a registered charity that collaborates with the Halton District School Board to assist students and support school programs.

HLF partners with individuals, corporations and community foundations to eliminate financial barriers to ​education for public school students in Acton, Burlington, Georgetown, Milton and Oakville. The foundation provide assistance through emergency funds for students-in-need, post-secondary scholarships, and engagement funds to help schools purchase tools and resources to engage students in learning.

Every time Boyne administration has reached out to the HLF for emergency funding for students/families in need they have provided.  And now we have received this engagement funding of $3450. We would like to offer our thanks back and provide funds for future requests.  Our ‘Be Nice’ fundraising for this year will be a COMMUNITY DINNER to support the HLF.
