Everyone knows that there are amazing students in all Avon Maitland Schools, but every once in a while there is one student who displays an act of kindness, thoughtfulness and compassion that really stands out.
11 year old Kassie Jefferson, a Grade 6 student at Holmesville Public School, took on her own special project before Valentine’s Day. Kassie raised and donated $125.00 to the “We In Action” project at Holmesville. She raised the money with heart dedication by baking, then selling delicious cake pops during Valentine’s week.
She advertised the cake pops on social networks and sold them at home to her family and friends. Kassie expressed: “It was such a great feeling to have donated to such an important cause!”
Our school’s “We in Action” fundraiser raises money to build wells in India so that families there have access to clean water.
