On Thursday October 17th, three high school students from the SD83 Leadership Committee came to Hillcrest to talk to the students about Toonie Tuesday. This is a district-wide initiative where students and staff members work together to raise money for a community in Tanzania.
Collectively, the school district has been raising money for many years and donates the money to Free the Children, a Canadian organization started by Craig and Mark Kieburger. Over the years, some of our high school students from our SD83 Leadership Committee, have even had the chance to go to various countries to help build schools in communities our school district has supported.
At Hillcrest, we are encouraging our students and staff members to bring a Toonie to donate to Free the Children. Tuesday, October 22nd, will be the official collection day. We hope our school community will continue to support this worthwhile cause.
Thank you for your support!
