A Sweet Student Project

- candy cane sales raise $ for MS Society -

A holiday fund raising project conceived by a Grade 2 class has had some sweet results. For the second straight year students have sold candy canes at Tecumseh Vista Academy prior to Christmas and on Friday, January 26th they'll give the proceeds of this year's sale to the MS Society.

Candy Canes for a Cure was an idea developed from a class discussion about helping out their parents during the holidays. It transformed into a fund raiser for the MS Society because the mother of a student has Multiple Sclerosis. In 2016 they raised $500. This year they'll turn over a check for $900.

The presentation will take place in Room 1125 at Tecumseh Vista Academy at 1:30 p.m.
