Special Thank You to…

As a school, we always try to support families who might need a little extra help over the holidays. We don’t do this in isolation, and we would really like to recognize some of the amazing support we have received from the community.

The Legion has an “Angel Tree”; we submit information about students who may not otherwise receive presents, and they bring those very generous gifts to our school to give to families. This year the Legion provided gifts for 18 of our students! 

Two local businesses provided Askews gift cards to be given to families. One of these businesses would like to remain unnamed, and the other is Tolko. Between the two, they provided $2300 in gift cards to help our families purchase groceries. Our staff donated several hundred dollars as well, which we converted into gift cards.

Our school always has a food drive at this time of year, and we did again this year, collecting non-perishable food items and cash for the Armstrong Food Bank. Mr. Austin’s class reached out to Pinnacle Pellet and they agreed to match any cash donations raised by the school. They donated $2500, which matched the funds raised by our school.

Thank you so much to our staff, students, and all of our community partners. This is such a generous and involved community!
