Mohawk Gardens is excited to announce our annual Glow in the Dark Dance-a-thon on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019. This is our school's biggest fundraiser and proceeds raised from this Dance-a-thon will help purchase flexible seating for our classrooms. Update: Thank you for raising over $4,000 Mohawk Gardens!!! 

Click Make a Donation on School Cash Online to donate to our Dance-a-thon and receive a tax receipt. Update: Donations and pink forms will be accepted untl Wednesday, February 20th.

Classes will dance in the gym at their scheduled time to songs they submitted to their teachers which have been approved by our Principal. Our awesome volunteer parent, "DJ Daddy", will be playing the tunes and the students will glow as they dance under the black lights, especially if they are wearing white or neon colours. Each student will receive a glow bracelet when they enter the gym and a freezie when they leave the gym.

Bright neon pink Dance-a-thon pledge forms were sent home with students last week and should be returned by February 13th (extended until February 20th) even if no pledges were collected as the class with the most forms returned gets a surprise! There are also several milestone rewards and prize incentives for our students to fundraise! See form for more info.

If you would like to volunteer at the Dance-a-thon, please contact mgpscouncil@gmail.com for the schedule.

Update: Thank you MG Community for your support!!! Congratulations to all of our student prize winners, especially Miss Raspopov's Gr. 2/3 class for returning the most forms and Mrs. Shepherd's & Mrs. Lynd's Kindergarten Green Room for raising the most funds!!! For raising over $4,000, students enjoyed an extended recess on Thursday, March 7th.
