What started as an assignment for the Wm. E. Hay student portfolios turned into an opportunity to help the Stettler Food Bank in the month of October.
Mrs. Kneeland-Teasdale’s Grade 10 Teacher Advisor class was tasked with coming up with COVID-friendly ways to achieve the volunteer and community involvement section of their high school portfolios.
In years past, students have helped with the IODE sale, the community gardens and walks/runs for different organizations.
With the restrictions on public gatherings these activities were no longer an option.
After considerable brainstorming, the students came up with the idea to have the entire school compete in their TA classes to bring in the highest amount they could to donate to the food bank.
Kneeland-Teasdale’s Grade 10 students delivered boxes to each TA classroom and put up posters around the school.
On Oct. 29th, the donations were collected and taken to the United Church where the food bank is located.
The winning class, Mike Bayer’s TA class, received individually-sized pizzas from Boston Pizza for their treat on Oct. 30th.
Special thanks goes out to Boston Pizza Stettler, Barbara-lynn Goodwin for tracking and transport, and to all of the families that donated food or funds to this activity!
