Fundraisers & Donations

After 3 years of planning and fundraising the new playground at Acadia Elementary School is built!

The new playground at Acadia Elementary School, located in the heart of Acadia, is one of the most utilized playgrounds in the community, welcoming families from all over Acadia and beyond.

With the help of a small but mighty group of dedicated volunteers this playground was re-imagined and built with the fundraising efforts of all Acadia School families, friends and community partners.

Our fundraising efforts are never ending! We aim to raise $5,000/school year to ensure we can afford to do things such as: funds for food to feed students, field trip busses, allowances for teacher classrooms, online reading tools, special events and in school residencies (art/dance etc).
