The sandboxes that M Carrier and his Division 10 students created have been a big hit with the students in all grades. Recognizing how popular they are, the Tennyson 2020 committee approached some local business for toys to add to the supply donated by parents so there would be plenty of toys to go round.
Granville Island Toy Company on Main Street donated Green Toy buckets, trucks, and stackable blocks and Hip Baby on 4th Avenue donated sand shapes and soft catch games for students to play with indoors. Thanks to their generosity we're now well stocked with toys for the coming months. It's lovely to see students from different grades collaborating on a construction project with the trucks or having a birthday party with a big sandy birthday cake.
The Tennyson 2020 committee, which is looking at the outdoor landscaping (including the playground equipment), furnishings and new technology needed in the new school, is looking for new members. Their next meeting will be in January and will focus on playground design and fundraising. Anyone is welcome to join no matter the size of commitment they are interested in making. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know what you can do.
And if you still have holiday shopping to do you might find just what you need at Granville Island Toy Company and Hip Baby.
