Two letters were sent out today to parents of New Brighton School children. These letters can be found here:
Please see the letter to parents below:
Dear New Brighton School Parents,
We are at a pivotal point in fundraising for our playground. We are required to raise an additional $25,000 by November 15, 2019 in order to qualify for a grant that could potentially fund the remainder required to build our playground. If we are awarded this grant, we can break ground in Spring 2020 and have our playground completed. A concept of our proposed park is pictured below. Please note that this concept is subject to change. We intend to host an open house prior to our build to consult with the community.
Kindly consider making a direct financial contribution from your family and/or approaching your employer(s) with the attached letter to contribute directly or via matching donation to help us reach our financial goal.
There are two ways to donate:
1. Through the Parks Foundation website, where you will receive a tax receipt for your contribution:
Please ensure you select NEW BRIGHTON SCHOOL PLAYGROUND from the drop-down menu; or
Please note that no tax receipts can be issued through PayPal donations.
Thank you to all of our parents, teachers, families, friends and volunteers for the financial contributions to date. We would also like to thank our volunteers who have donated countless hours of work over the past five years organizing all of our fundraisers and applying for numerous grants to get us to this pivotal point.

We have teamed up with the New Brighton School Council to hold a silent auction of some of our items from our cancelled event during the Family Dance Party scheduled for June 15, 2017. We will also be holding a 50/50 draw that night as well. More details are below and we will add additional information as it becomes available. All proceeds will be going to our playground fund.
Tickets are now on sale for our Schank’s pub night fundraiser. Details and ticket sales can be found at
Hope to see you there!
