Hugh Thank You!! (Posted May 25)
The Booth Community came together over this past weekend to give our school a "Brave Farewell". Thank you to the many volunteers for the tasks/jobs/performances/duties you performed. A lot of time/commitment/resourcefulness went into making this weekend a tremendious success. The pride expressed by alumni and current students for their school was fantastic.

We held many bake sales throughout the year. As well as collecting donations from the boxes found throughout the school.
In total, we raised over $6500 this year to go towards a schoolhouse in Ghana through the organization Free the Children. This is including a $2500.00 grant we received from Robin Hood flour.
Thank you again for all your help! ""

Our Breakfast ProgramCurrently our students come to us from Beaconsfield and Holy Cross Junior High. These schools have identified a need for a breakfast program for their students. They operate a Breakfast Club in association with the Kids Eat Smart program. This program will restart on September 15th.
In the past year we have recognized the fact that the needs of these students do not disappear when they transition to High School. As a result we have now instituted our own Kids Eat Smart program.
We are providing a breakfast of toast, juice, fruit, etc each morning Monday to Friday. This is open to all students, not just to those who cannot afford it. The philosophy is that all students perform better in school if they eat properly.
Food for this project comes from donations and sponsorship. Any money or in -kind contributions are matched dollar for dollar by Kids Eat Smart. If you would like to make a contribution or if you have a contact in the corporate world who might help us out please contact email@example.com or at 579 6465.
A tax receipt can be provided for the value of any contributions.
