On Monday, Dec. 13, the students at Heroes’ Memorial sat down to a turkey Christmas meal. There were two seatings and the Christmas meal with all the trimmings was on offer. The students get the special meal for a reasonable cost and several organizations, including the Fordyce Women’s Institute, make donations to help offset the cost for students who have difficulty covering the cost of the meal. The week continued the food drive for the Trinity Anglican Church food bank. It is being run this year by the Junior Optimist Club.
I Love To Read Week has been moved to the week before Christmas for several years. Book activities and quizzes were happening all week long.
This Tuesday, the last day before the Christmas holidays the pancake breakfast is scheduled. Perhaps it will be postponed depending on how Omicron does its thing. One time, because of a Snow Day on the last day before the Christmas holidays, the pancake breakfast was rescheduled for January. It was a great way to start the new calendar year.
