Winter Fun and Learning!



Lots of jumping and funds raised for a great cause!

“Help the Homeless” Fundraiser

The Grade 6 “Help the Homeless” fundraiser for the Welcome House in Peace Dale was a tremendous success. Headed up by Mr. Levett’s homeroom, the students organized a school-wide fundraiser after learning about teen activism. The students interviewed employees at the Welcome House to find out what their needs were. They then brainstormed ways to collect the items needed. Deciding upon a food drive, the students created posters, flyers, emails, and announcements to inform the school about the activity. Students collected classroom boxes each week, and tallied up the amount of items from each class and grade level. 

After four weeks, Metcalf raised 4193 items! 
The items will be transported to the Welcome House by some of the 6th grade students as well...GREAT JOB!!
