Updating Our Educational Environment With Greenspace and Outdoor Classrooms

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

One of the key planks in my election platform is a focus on upgrading the educational environment at our local schools.

I will hold the board accountable for their promises to upgrade the physical condition of our schools – but for me that is just a start.

My vision includes improvements to both the indoor and outdoor educational environment with projects that replace asphalt with landscaped greenspace, outdoor play amenities, outdoor classrooms and community gardens.

The recent conversion of 1,300 square feet of pavement at St. Margaret Mary elementary school is a perfect example of what can be done with a minimal budget.

If elected Trustee for Ward 7 – Hamilton Central Mountain, I will work to make sure that the Public School Board leads the way when it comes to both the indoor and outdoor educational environment we offer to our students.

Sincerely,

Dawn Danko

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

Environmental issues seem to be everywhere these days, and an educated, scientific approach to dealing with these issues starts in the classroom.
