Cartage crew for their tireless work in moving stuff multiple times around Frank Ney and from Rutherford to Frank Ney Custodial teams that worked cleaning the building (a few times) as we kept tracking dust and dirt all over The construction crew from Unitech for getting the ‘job done’ The transportation department for helping us settle into being a ‘bus school’ The Frank Ney staff for their amazing time and energy to get their classrooms set up, their welcome smiles to all our new families, and their flexibility as we worked through our first start up as a ‘big school’ A shout out to Brechin Elementary’s Education Assistant Jane Bourke who is connecting with kids in meaningful ways through the day including the breakfast program. Jane also has a special connection with vulnerable students. 68 Hoorays goes out to the District Administration Centre Receptionist Joyce Francescutto. Joyce goes above and beyond each day to make visitors and callers feel welcome and important! Kudos to keeping us all in time too! Kudos to Mr. Ken Brownsell from Slegg Building Materials, who recently presented Park Avenue, Bayview and Georgia Avenue elementary schools with a $2,500 donation. This donation was from an annual golf tournament Slegg holds for its contractors. The donations are used to help pay for food the school provides for students and families in need. Brownsell says “It is all about the kids and seeing their happy faces.” Schools are thankful for Slegg and their contractors for their continued support and generous donations.
