Thanks to a little encouragement from the principal, a Skeena Middle School class has taken a heartwarming idea and put it into action.
Grade 7 French Immersion students in Tracey Carter’s class made treats for animals at the local shelters, making a delivery at the Terrace and Thornhill animal shelters during the week of Dec. 11.
“The students had thought of it awhile back, but we didn’t act on it—so I would say it was because of the Kindness Challenge our principal, Phillip Barron, brought forth [to the school] that we were inspired to finally do it!” said Carter in an email Dec. 13. “Many other classes joined in as well with their contributions this month.” Here’s what other classes did:
– made candy for the doctors and nurses in emergency at Mills Memorial Hospital,
– made shoeboxes and socks for those in need,
– made plans to visit the Terraceview Lodge for tea and treats in the new year,
– collected gifts for kindergarten students,
– organized candygrams and giving the money to the Terrace Churches’ Food Bank,
– made food for Christmas lunch at the soup kitchen,
– made crafts with a Grade 3 class at Suwilaawks Community School,
– delivered cookies and Christmas cards to the fire department, RCMP and ambulance station,
– and led by student council, each class collected more than 2,000 food items for Terrace Churches’ Food Bank.
