Let the Celebrations Begin!

Come one! Come all!

We invite you to join us on September 29, 2013 between 3:00 and 5:00 pm to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Ridgewood Park. We are looking forward to an afternoon of family fun and refreshments!

Remember how busy build day was? Well, this will be a chance for us all to gather together  to enjoy a quiet moment in the peace garden or labyrinth, a friendly chat in the outdoor classroom, a fun game on the soccer field, or simply watch our children play on a structure that they could only dream of just one year ago.

We hope to see you all there!

Looking Back...

It is hard to believe that 202 days have passed since our "Playground Build Day." The smiles seen and the spirit felt on that day continue to be seen and felt every time we pass the playground and see children and families gathering together there. Today is a day to look back and reflect. Tomorrow, April 20th, marks a special moment in the history of Acreman Elementary. It was on this date last year that the students and community members sat in anticipation waiting for the big news! "ACREMAN WON A PLAYGROUND AWARD!!!" Now, here we are, a year later, with so much more than a playground! Yes, we have an outdoor classroom, a peace garden, soccer field and labyrinth...but what we have, is more than that. It's the sense of unity, community spirit and the certainty that anything is possible if we work together!
Today, the day before the actual "Announcement Anniversary", students at Acreman will watch our Build Day video and be reminded of what an amazing day it was! Join us by clicking on the link below. It is sure to put a smile on your face.

Another Donation!!!

Over a 100 days since build day, yet we are still receiving donations from generous organizations. Thank you, Brian Mayne for your interest in our playground. Because of you, the CLAC (Christian Labor Association of Canada) has donated $1000 to the playground. THANK YOU!
