REINVIGORATING RICHVIEW FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

FOR A FULLY RENOVATED LIBRARY!

Welcome to the 2018/2019 school year! High school is an exciting time for our young people. The Richview staff and Parent Council share their excitement, partnering throughout the year in manyways to support our students as they work toward their goals.

In the last three years we have raised $57,600 through our Reinvigorating Richview direct donations campaign and 2015/2017 pub night fundraisers. This money was spent on technology upgrades in many areas of the school. We have purchased 146 computers and 8 projectors to update labs and classrooms. Funds were also spent on cameras, tripods and other technical equipment for the new Digital Production Room.

Our next “Reinvigorating Richview” project is a much needed revamping of the Library for a projected cost of $40,000. The library is the central hub in the school, currently housing 3 computer labs. Senior Staff has worked in consultation with the TDSB architect and designer to draft a renovation plan for the library that will see an increase in lab space and student collaboration areas.

The quicker we fundraise, the sooner this project can be completed! We are pleased to accept donations to the campaign through our School Cash Online site.

Please consider making a donation online for this fundraising project. If all of our families participate we could very quickly meet our goals!
