May Parent Council Update

May is OUTDOOR sand toys month (a staff request) so while you are spring cleaning, hold onto any good condition sand toys/outdoor toys that our students can use and that you no longer need. Drop off is in the bins inside the foyer of the main doors or to the Principal if it is a bigger item. Buckets, shovels, trucks etc are all needed.

PPPS is Turning 60!

Did you know that Pleasant Park was built and opened 60 years ago? We think that’s something to celebrate so John Marshall, a parent has agreed to spearhead celebrations in 2019/2020. Parent Council will be organizing various activities this school year and next year to celebrate the school’s 60th. We need your help to spread the word; especially to school Alumni. We also need a few volunteers to help plan out the year. Please send any information about Alumni or if you want to help organize to John Marshall at

Plan for the Pleasant Park PS BBQ are underway and volunteers are needed. This is a really great social event for our school community. Please contact Liz Kacew at if you are interested in volunteering.

Find out about one of the jewels in our community and help to support Pleasant Park Public School at the same time!

The Classic Car show features beautifully preserved samples of our automotive history and the chance to “tinker” around as a family.

Parent Council will be running the concession as a fundraiser for the junior play structure. Proud to feature food and drinks supplied by Loblaws Elmvale (St. Laurent). We hope to raise the final few thousand by the end of June. The weather network is calling for sun!
