Athena Consolidated would like to thank D. Alex MacDonald Ford Lincoln and Ford Canada for their “Drive One 4 Ur School” fundraising activity. Rod MacDonald presented a cheque for $4020.00 to Mrs. Doyle. This money will be used at Athena School to help support ongoing needs such as our breakfast program, outdoor play equipment, sports teams, classroom and learning materials, as well as technology and music initiatives. Thank you to all who came out to support and help during this fundraiser!
Athena Home and School has entered the Kraft Project Play competition to support the building of a new playground at our school. Check out our profile here: http://kraftprojectplay.com/en/nominations/profile/athena-consolidated-school-1/
If successful, it would mean we would receive $250,000 to build a new playground for the children of Athena Consolidated School and the greater community.
But, in order to make the TOP 4 on July 26th, we need your help. To get into the top 4, we need to show Kraft that our community supports this project and how much we all care about our school.
So please share the Kraft Project Play Athena page on Facebook and Twitter (make sure it’s tagged as public). Be sure to include the hashtag #kpp_athena so Kraft can see our school and community spirit!

A Note from Athena Home and School ~ A playground for all.
Over the past few months Athena Home and School has struck up a fundraising committee to support the purchase of new playground equipment. We have taken the time to engage various companies who provide such equipment and have made a “wishlist” of playground pieces. Our work has come together in the form of this playground design. This playground is the dream version we hope to achieve for the students at Athena in hopes that it is enjoyed for several generations after our children have grown and moved on. This dream will cost over $150,000 for equipment and installation costs alone. It is worth every penny to see the students reap this reward, but we cannot make it happen without the support of the students, parents and teachers.
There are many ways you can help makes this playground a reality. Over the next year, Home and School will be holding various fundraisers you can choose to support and we are always looking for more friendly faces around the meeting table.
If you are interested in helping out at our next fundraiser, attending our meetings, or just staying informed by email – please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
