Dear Jackman parents,
We are excited that Phase 1 of the schoolyard revitalization is scheduled to take place this year! With all the funds raised for this phase, we are now focusing on Phase 2 of the project, which is estimated to cost $120,000.
In Phase 2, we will be installing a brand new track that extends and loops around the school, a long jump pit and a storage unit. A new climber will also be incorporated into the re-design, as well as donor pavers on our walk of fame.
Tdsb policy says, in order to be considered for the construction to commence in 2020, we need to have all the funds raised by the beginning of September 2019. This gives us a window of four months to achieve our goals. The steering committee is dedicated and working hard in raising all the funds needed, so as not to delay Phase 2. We have some great news! The Jackman School Council has committed $60,000 of this year’s funds towards the Field of Dreams!
With your generous support, we can make the Field of Dreams a reality! If you would like to make a donation, please click on the link provided. Donations of $25 or more receive a tax receipt and a donation of $500 will receive a personalized engraved paver, that will be installed in the re-design of the schoolyard, as our way of saying thank you.
We will continue to keep you informed on the project.
The steering committee
