Jesse Ketchum Public School is home to a diverse group of students from across the city. Despite being located in the heart of Yorkville for over 175 years, many of its students commute from households outside the neighbourhood, a great deal of whom have a household income below the TDSB average.
The elementary school strives to provide a meaningful and engaging curriculum for all its students, which includes access to motivating field trips, extra-curricular activities and athletics. Currently, funds for these activities are scarce due to a limited school budget and the socio-economic background of many of its parents.
Fundraising for Jesse Ketchum through the B&O Yorkville Run will allow us to offer our students enriched experiences and provide the foundation for them to excel in all areas of their lives.
