Sat. 27 Feb – “SAVE OUR SCHOOLS” CHALK-IN Event

Chalk-In-for-Neighbourhood-Schools-FINAL

Chalk-In to Save Neighbourhood Schools

Saturday, dysentery February 27th from 11:00 – 1:00 pm
Art Gallery Steps, Duncan Avenue

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ecole Puntledge is at risk of closure, and until we stop the budget cuts no school is safe! 

Children and their families are invited to spell out their feelings about our government’s chronic underfunding of neighbourhood schools.  Bring your favorite chalk and mark a failing grade on Christy’s Report Card – or, just draw a lovely, glowing heart to show how much you love your school! The Save Our Schools Chalk-In starts at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27th on the Art Gallery Steps on Duncan Avenue (rain or shine).  Refreshments, live music, and sidewalk chalk in groovy neon colours will be provided.  Every school in the Valley is affected by the cuts to education, and people from every neighbourhood are welcome to come write messages in chalk.

This ritual for Public Education will be a practice run for the outcry needed at the school district’s Town Hall event on March 8th at 6:30 p.m. in Puntledge School’s gym (401 Willemar), the public’s first chance to speak to Trustees before the decision on school closure is made the following week.
