Elementary Grade 6/7 students in Steve Dickens’ class raised $750 with their painted recycling barrels which they auctioned off at an invitational dinner on May 23 celebrating their participation in the Too Cool 4 School intergenerational project with the Seniors Village. For several weeks the students attended classes at the village and visited with seniors. Funds raised by the barrel sale will go toward a bursary for a graduating student who has participated in the intergenerational program. Pictured are Tyler Wiseman (back left)
