During the month of October, Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Academy’s students have been practicing the virtue “Gratitude’ by bringing in donations for the Comox Valley Food Bank. The Grade One and Kindergarten class have been promoting the campaign which produced some remarkable results with as many as 19 boxes of nonperishable items! Our students certainly practiced thankfulness with our verse of the month, “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever.” (Psalm 107:1)

Within our school, two Grade 4/5 classrooms, Mrs Spragg and Mr Hesselink had a competition for the most items. Unfortunately, Mr Hesselink’s class was a bit short of items, so he had to dress as a clown for the day! What fun! Thanks to all who made donations to this wonderful community organization.
