New fundraising initiative by Glashan Public School needs your support

Glashan Public School, located on Arlington Avenue near Bank Street, is one of Old Ottawa East's grade 7 & 8 feeder schools. Glashan recently finished in 2nd place and also won a creative prize in the Majesta Trees of Knowledge competition for an outdoor classroom. Glashan has now launched their next fundraising initiative for the Glashan Schoolyard Greening Project through an Indiegogo campaign. Indiegogo is a crowdsourcing platform and the goal is to raise $9,000 to depave the schoolyard which must be done before other work can start.
