Schools throughout CCRSB have been working hard these last few weeks to raise funds for Fort MacMurray. 

Families and staff of Winding River Consolidated demonstrated the virtue of kindness last week as monetary donations were collected for the Red Cross to support families of Fort McMurray. The school "Pay It Forward Team" visited classrooms throughout the week to collect donations and give red ribbons to students to place on the "Giving Tree" in the foyer. 

The Met to We We group at Uniacke District School organized a PJ day. Students and staff were encouraged to wear their PJs in exchange for a donation of any size. Additionally, the Me to We group voted to donate the proceeds of a recent canteen fundraiser to this cause. With the generous support of our entire school community, the total funds collected during these fundraisers was $1138.55, which will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross.
