9th Annual Pajama Drive for Admiral Seymour

This year Rockridge is participating in the 9th Annual Pajama Drive for Admiral Seymour Elementary. We are raising money to buy PJs for kids who might otherwise have a lean holiday this winter. ​Monetary contributions will be collected during 2-2 until Dec. 6.  ​Students’ 2-2 classes will keep track of their funds raised by colouring and attaching a cut-out of a pair of PJ’s on their tree poster for every $20 raised.

See Mr. Anthony about volunteering for the Pajama Drive if you’re interested in helping out with this event. ​Ten lucky Ravens will get the chance to join Sentinel students, who have spearheaded this drive, to visit Admiral Seymour and deliver the PJ’s.
