Christmas Hampers

Another successful year for our Christmas family hampers!  The students and staff worked incredibly hard at making Christmas a joyous occasion for six families and one senior.  Together $4,800.00 was raised in cash and gift cards, plus at least $2,000 in food and gifts.   “Kindness in words creates confidence.  Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.  Kindness in giving creates Love”  Lao Tzu

The ELC students have helped create a lot of love in our FSJ community!

Have a great Christmas and holiday season and see you on January 4, 2016!

Christmas Hampers

ChristmasTree2

It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas at the ELC!  It has become an annual tradition for us at the ELC to sponsor single parent families in need at Christmas time.  We are pleased to announce that we are sponsoring 6 families and one food hamper for a senior this year!

Christmas hampers usually include a Christmas dinner, clothes for the children, winter coats, shoes, other gifts based on the children’s interest, and groceries to carry the family a bit past the season.  The students and staff really enjoy working together to bring enjoyment to a family in the Christmas season.

Our Make it Work Day!

We shared the day with Grade 6 students from Bert Ambrose for a busy, fun filled informative day with loads of learning and technology.  The students enjoyed digital photography, built catapults, did some physical testing and calculated the results,  created a community flag, ran, danced, and enjoyed some tasty bannock.   We are not called the Energetic Learning Campus for nothing!

Christmas Hamper update!

The 8 Community groups at the ELC sponsored 4 single parent families this Christmas through the Women’s Resource Center.  Hampers usually include a Christmas dinner, clothes for the children, winter coats, shoes, other gifts based on the children’s interests, and groceries to carry the family a bit past the Christmas meal.

This is our 3rd year participating in such a rewarding charity for the holidays. We always seem to have a short time-frame to gather all this for the families – only two weeks – but the students sure rose to the challenge! Between all the classes, we provided supplies for 4 Christmas dinners, a “tree-full” of gifts for each family (including stockings!)  and $4,030.00 in gift cards to split between the families!

This has become an annual tradition for the ELC. It was the commitment of the teachers and students of the whole school that made it possible to sponsor these families for Christmas this season. We are so proud of our students and this is just another reason that the ELC is such a great place to work and go to school.
