Kids Connection Haiti/Singing Rooster

Nous sommes très fiers de tous les 4e années! Vous avez essayé vraiment fort de faire une diffé vous avez réussi! :)

We are so proud of all of the hard work and commitment the grade 4s and their families/friends have shown towards our Kids Connection HaitiéSinging Rooster coffee initiative. You have all made a difference. Details to come soon regarding coffee order arrival (within the next couple weeks).
We have raised a grand total of : $6,180.  

Our class alone raised $1,755. Incroyable!

Here is an email we got to show you some of the impact we have made as a community on the people of Haiti.

''I’m very pleased to introduce you all to Stevenson Louisma.  The funds you have generously raised will provide him with more than a year of high school education as well as money for food and public transportation to and from school. 

Stevenson lives in an area of Port-Au-Prince called Cite des Cays.  He is 22 years old.  He lost both of his parents in the earthquake of 2010 and had to live in a tent for many months because his house was destroyed.  He now lives in a rented room and attends l’Institution Mixte Polyvalente de Vilaire.  After high school, he plans to study civil engineering at a university in Haiti. 

Your generosity will change his life. I look forward to sharing his progress and accomplishments with you all as he works towards his dream! ''

Book Fair and Grade 6 entrepreneurial showcase

Students have previewed the Book Fair and wrote down some awesome finds with their corresponding prices. If you are interested in having your child purchase one of his/her wishlist books, please send the money with them for Monday (May 7th) of next week. Students will be sent down Monday but as it is running all week, they can be sent down at a later date as well if they do not have their money with them that day.

Grade 6 entrepreneurs day: The grade 6's will be selling their handmade products to the K-Gr. 5 classes on Thursday May 10th in the gym. All profits made from the sale will be donated to the Kanata Food Cupboard. Please help support this cause and the fantastic work from the grade 6s.

Thank you !
