Please vote for our local school - Voting Starts Dec 2nd!

A few weeks ago, I put out the request from a local elementary school urging people to vote for their bid for the Aviva Community Fund.. the school is hoping to win a portion of the $1,000,000 prize to fund an outdoor classroom, complete with amphitheatre, butterfly house, compost station, solar greenhouse and more! The facilities would be used by kids in grades P to 6, as well as other local schools and organizations.

The good news is that Tantallon Elementary School has made it to the semi finals! Now, the competition begins again and the voting for the semi finals starts tomorrow.. Here is a press release from the school.. if you an extra 10 seconds a day, please vote for this worthy cause:

The Nature Room – our outdoor classroom is a semi-finalist in the Aviva Community Fund Competition.

Semi-final voting begins December 2nd.
