Your Child, Your School, Your Story

Choosing a high quality school is important for your child’s future. It is the basis for your child’s primary education. This is a decision many of you recently made, and it probably wasn’t easy as there are more options than ever before. We want to share your story to help families make an informed decision on where to send their children. Your stories will be used to create a book for Collinwood families that will be choosing a school. This book will use your story, and showcase artwork created by your child.

As a token of our thanks, the first 40 participating families will receive both a $25 gift card to Dave’s Supermarket and $25 in gift certificates to the Coit Road Farmer’s Market. There will be 20 families selected to be included in the printed book.

We are looking for the following:

A picture created by your child about their favorite part the school day.

In essay form:
