The students and staff of PDS would like to support the MCC School Kits project again this year. This Service Learning project helps us to remember the importance of education. There are many children in poverty-stricken areas of the world that are not alllowed to attend school because they can't afford to buy school supplies. We would like to make a difference in the lives of such children. Our goal is to purchase more than 230 school kits. Each kit costs just $8 so lets do our part in sharing even a small portion of our abundance with those who are less fortunate. There are a number of activities planned during the month of November to help us reach our goal. Please consider participating in our MCC School Kits project - it feels good to help those in need!
PDS is proud of one student's efforts to help a few folks who help so many in the community. Dustin, a Gr. 6 student, organized a cookie sale to raise money for equipment at the Winkler Fire Hall. Students at PDS were more than happy to buy the cookies as a sweet treat,. Dustin raised $50.05 and his efforts were recognized with gratitude at the Open House held at the Winkler Fire Hall.
