Winter Carnival a big success!

Our Winter Carnival was a big success! Lots of smiling little faces enjoyed our activity stations (indoors and outdoors), the sleigh ride, a cup of hot chocolate, being with their friends, and having good old fashioned winter fun! Our Winter Carnival is all about community building and “Meadowlands Magic!”.

A big THANK YOU to our wonderful volunteers who helped at the event – without your help, our events would not be the success they are; to all our talented bakers who donated tasty treats to our bake sale; to our very dedicated and hardworking Council who make so much possible for all the children!

Special thanks to McDaniel’s Independent Grocer for their continuous kind and generous support of our school; to Trevor Anders and the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group who very generously donated the amazing items for our raffle, along with 16 Ottawa 67’s tickets that were given out yesterday in our draws from the snowman colouring sheets. Thank you as well to all the caring boys and girls who volunteered at the Carnival so that their friends and classmates could have lots of fun!

We are also thankful for the kind donations of books for our book sale, of skates and helmets for our school, and for the many many items donated to support the Syrian refugees entering our community.

And lastly, another special thank you goes out to our new Principal Laurie Pilon and to our Vice Principal, Mme Albari – not only did they come help at the Carnival, but they also very kindly helped us with setup and clean-up.

We are truly a magical Meadowlands community!
