- students sell candy canes for C.A.S. -
Representatives from the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Society will be at Belle River Public School on Wednesday, December 19th at 11:00 a.m. to accept $1028 from the kindergarten classes.
The money was raised by the kindergarten students through their Kindercane sales this month.
This project began as a class discussion about helping people during the holiday season. They decided to sell candy canes to their fellow students in December at a cost of $1 each and to donate the proceeds to the C.A.S.
The project was more than a charitable enterprise for the students because it was tied into their learning, with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy.
