Hello OOOPS Families,
A giant thank you to those families who have already donated.
To date, 26% of our families have donated and we have raised $6,759.00.
Our goal is to get every family to donate whatever they can so we can reach $10,000.
These funds go directly to support our students in the 2016-17 school year through such as:
- Individual classroom enrichment and resources
- Team buses
- New computers
- Dance and drumming sessions and other art programs
- Books for the library
- Plants and supplies for our beautiful garden
- Halloween party and the Harvest Festival
- Special speakers and presentations
Your generosity helps support the many extra-curricular events that enhance your student’s educational experience!
Thank you for being an integral part of the OOOPS Community.

All donations over $25 are tax deductible. You will receive your tax receipt in a few weeks.
I’m a Dewson mom from the area. There’s space in Hebrew language & culture classes provided by the TDSB at Dewson. $20/yr. Wednesday’s from 3:30-6. We Need to meet min numbers for class to run.
The class is open to all.
It would be great if you could help get the word out to the OOPS community for them to be able to take advantage of his great opportunity.

Happy to discuss further.
As some of you know, the family that OOOPS helped sponsor to settle in Toronto from Syria arrived in February. We worked with other schools in the area, from which many generous people gave of their time, energy, creativity and money. Thank you to everyone of course.
The kids at OOOPS and the other schools have also been very interested, supportive and curious about this initiative, taking this chance to learn more about Syria and the plight of refugees to the types of vegetables commonly used in Syrian cooking (which they have planted in our school garden!)
We thought that you’d all like to know a bit more about how the family is settling in – as would your kids – so are sharing this brief but excellent update. The family took part in preparing this and have approved sending it to you. They are also coming to our Fun Fair on June 17th to get to know us a little too.
Thanks again to everyone who made this possible!
