Kindness shows up early
Madame McDonald's Late French Immersion 6 class from Twin Rivers Elementary School was "très" enthusiastic about helping fill shoeboxes for less-fortunate children around the world. The boxes were collected as part
of Operation Christmas Child. The original intent was to have the 30 LFI 6's work in partners to fill 15 boxes, but by the time all was said and done, 39 boxes were bursting at the seams. After the final box was closed, the class walked over to SHSS to add their 39 boxes to the 111 already filled there, creating a grand total of 150 boxes between the two groups.
A main focus of Social Studies 6 is learning about the world, and after these Twin Rivers students heard a presentation by SHSS librarian Mrs. Tamelin about her travel stories and her work with underprivileged kids, their
enthusiasm grew immensely. The next project for the group will be helping the local Interact Club with clothing donations in the New Year.
