Food Bank Totals

Thank you to everyone who donated food and/or money to the Grade 5/6 Food Bank fundraiser in December. We have received our totals from the Calgary Food Bank: we collected 2095 lbs of food and $2097. Wow! For a school of our size, these numbers are even more impressive. Thank you so much for your generosity and support of this fundraiser.
