With a little over 200 students between JK and Grade 6, Poplar Road Junior Public School is doing their part to make a difference in the lives of students across our city. We met up with them at their assembly to say thanks for their donation to TFSS and how we've used the money to help so many young kids their own age.
Before we gave our presentation to a gym full of excited children, we were given a tour around the school and were shown some wonderful Mother’s Day cards a kindergarten class was working on.
The principal, Ms. Joanne Simmons, shared that Poplar Road chose to participate in the Red Nose Campaign because they are a “charitable community who enjoys giving back” and that “there are many students in Toronto that need our help”. We love hearing about schools that have a big heart!
With the Grade 6 Leadership Team spearheading their school’s fundraising initiative, Poplar Road raised close to $500 to help students with urgent needs across Toronto. Way to go Poplar Road!
