SJA LENTEN PROJECTS

This year, we are celebrating the good work of the OK Clean Water Project and of our local food banks, Pinecrest Terrace and Morrison Gardens, in our fundraising and our canned food drive. 

Every Tuesday during Lent, we are collecting cans for the Food Bank. Last Tuesday, a snow day, our community donated over 80 cans. Our target is to have each person in our school bring in 1 can each Tuesday before Easter. 

We have three special events organized for our OK Clean Water Fundraising.  The first was a Jersey and Hat day. That raised over $230.00. 
Our next event is the Mile of Coins (March 23) where we try to line up our donations along the wall around the Learning Commons.  Math Inquiry? If we made it around the Learning Commons, how could we estimate the total value of the coins? How many actual coins are needed to go around the Learning Commons? 
Event 3: PJ Day for OK...Clean Water Project.  April 7th.  Always a popular day on the calendar. 

We thank you for your support of our Lenten Projects and your sharing with your children the good message that our service to our neighbour helps to define who we are as a community of faith and love.
