We are pleased to announce that McDonald’s Barrhaven (3773 Strandherd Dr.) has agreed to help us raise funds for technology in our school. During the hours of 4PM to 8PM on October 28th McDonald’s Barrhaven will donate $3 from every value meal, kids meal and entrée salad sold. This money will help us in purchasing projectors for the classrooms. So why not take a night off from cooking, invite your family, friends, and neighbours to meet you at McDonald’s for dinner.
We hope to see you there!
