The Elementary Community Service Club focuses on teaching students about kindness, respect, and empathy—all internal strengths that connect them to others. Ultimately, students are reminded about the importance of giving, and how they can be positive contributors and responsible citizens. We strive to promote events and initiatives where students experience the satisfaction that stems from working with and for the community.
During the month of October, the Elementary Community Service Club hosted a mouth-watering Halloween Bake Sale. On the morning of the 30th
of October, the elementary upper atrium was flooded with the aromas of Halloween-inspired cakes, cupcakes, and decadent sweets. Students from Early Childhood to Grade 5 were allowed time to visit the bake sale, and buy their treats of choice. The bake sale was an eye-boggling success thanks to the students and parents, who dedicated precious time over the weekend to make such creative treats in honor of our cause. The proceeds will be donated to our chosen cancer charity, "Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro."
