In October of 2012, we were very lucky to have Simon Jackman, founder of the Spirit Bear Coalition, present to our students, not only about the Spirit Bear, but also about how a young person can take hold of a cause and unite the world!  Ms. Andison's grade 4/5 class will be sending a notice home about their Popcorn Sales as the school continues to raise funds to adopt a "Spirit Bear (kermode bear)".  $158 was raised last year and when $500 is raised, a bear will be "adopted" and the school will work together with Ms. Andison's class to name the bear.  Bags of popcorn will be sold for $2 (Ms. Curtis's class: Monday; Mrs. Burgess's Class: Tuesday; Ms. Lee's Class: Wednesday; and Ms. Andison's Class: Thursday)  November 25-28th week.
