Do you love our School Pool?
Picture it closed next year.
NEW! UPDATE JUNE 7:
We learned a lot at the Aquatics Working Group meeting last week. The most important lesson: During the last battle to save the school pools, the pools that survived were the ones with the most passionately committed parents.
IF YOU LOVE OUR POOL, please SIGN THE PETITION (located in the school office) by THIS THURSDAY MORNING. OR, if you prefer, please email us at email@example.com with your short statement about why pool programming at Fairmount Park matters to your family and to our community! We will share your commitment with Toronto Lands Corporation / Toronto Council / Toronto Parks & Recreation.
-------------------------When 31 school pools were nearly shut down in 2008, it was community activism that kept them open.
Today we face a similar crisis, as the City’s lease of 33 TDSB school pools...INCLUDING OUR BOWMORE / FAIRMOUNT PARK POOL...expires in December. Toronto City Council will decide whether to renew the leases in the fall. The leases are needed to keep the pools open.
Please plan to attend one or both of these meetings, and spread the word to your friends, family & neighbours! Tell the City that our pool must be protected!
