JK/SK Class on a Mission
- youngest learners lead school in food drive -
 
Responding to recent publicity of the need for supplies at the Downtown Mission, Mrs. McLennan’s JK/SK class at Dr. David Suzuki Public School initiated a food drive and awareness campaign in their school community.
 
They created displays, posters and announcements to promote their cause. This included visiting each classroom and speaking to fellow students and staff about the need for support. The JK/SK class contributed more than 200 food items by itself and they will deliver the entire collection to the Downtown Mission personally on Friday, May 29th at 1:00 p.m.
 
The whole project is being documented on the class blog www.mrsmclennan.blogspot.ca and the students have also learned from the experience by making literacy and numeracy connections to their efforts.
