|EMSB PACKS MOLSON STADIUM FOR ALOUETTES GAME|
MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 8, 2015 – Over 700 members of the English Montreal School Board community packed Percival Molson Memorial Stadium on Thursday, September 3 for what is hoped to become an annual #EnglishMTL Night with the Montreal Alouettes.
In partnership with the Alouettes, tickets to the evening were sold as a fundraiser that benefitted individual Home & School Associations or Parent Participation Organizations (PPO).
Families from East Hill Elementary School in R.D.P., Royal West Academy in Montreal West, Dunrae Gardens and Carlyle Schools in T.M.R., Cedarcrest Elementary School in St. Laurent, Merton Elementary School in Côte Saint Luc, Honoré Mercier Elementary School in St. Leonard and St. Dorothy Elementary School in St. Michel all enjoyed a wonderful evening cheering on the Alouettes.
As apart of their Together at School program, members of the Montreal Alouettes spend their offseason visiting schools while encouraging students to focus on their studies and pursue a healthy lifestyle.
