Our partnership with the Retired Teachers of Ontario (RTO) – District 11 Waterloo has continued to grow. On May 18, 2017, we were honoured to receive $1,220 in Presidents Choice, Walmart, Dollarama and Sobeys’s gift cards at their Spring General Meeting. These gifts will help us purchase program materials and healthy snacks for use in our Get Ready for SchoolTM program. We thank each and every member for their kind financial contribution. Our thanks as well to the many RTO/ERO members who generously give their time volunteering in our programs, as well as in our office. They are true literacy champions!
