The amazing Grade 7 RISE students at Ford City Public School put their effective persuasive writing skills into full action and got amazing results! A real problem was brought to their attention and they jumped on board immediately to try and make a difference. It was clear that our snack program would not have enough funds to sustain us all year. Especially since we are supposed to have 3 food groups per day on the tray! As a result, these persuasive letters were given to some of our community partners. To date, these students have received a wonderful response. Donations have come in from the Ford Motor Company, Unifor, and The Optimist Club. The entire Ford City student body is incredibly grateful! Thank you to the RISE students for making a BIG difference! Thank you to our community partners for your generous donations!
