PMPS Weekly Update June 21st, 2023
Good Evening Mustang Families,
It’s been another great week at Princess Margaret. Thank you to all of our families who were able to come out to our Arts and Family Fun Night evening. We hope you enjoyed the beautiful artwork, our school choir, the games, the watermelon and the special staff performance! Thank you for supporting our kindergarten book sale, with all profits going towards our kindergarten garden. A big congratulations to our families who won the summer fun baskets as well. Much appreciation also goes to our families who did buy freezies the night of our event and over the last few weeks, as the profits were used towards our grade ⅞ trip and graduation. Milk and Freezie sales will end this week as our supply runs out.
We want to congratulate all of our athletes who represented our school at the track and field meet today. You made us proud with your grit, determination, and team spirit. Thank you to our coaches and parent volunteers who helped our students shine! A big thank you goes to all of our families who supported our recent food drive. We had over 500 items donated. Well done Mustangs! Please check out Twitter: @margaret_ps. I update our website regularly as well: www.ugdsb.ca/PrincessMargaret/ . Please take a moment once and while and check out all of our great news!
