By Peter Gallant, Director of Music at Summerside Intermediate School
Kelly MacNeill is super proud of her Grade 9 students for wanting to make a difference in their community. What started out as a feel good conversation about helping others, quickly turned to a friendly competition among her three Health classes. For one month each class will be bringing in items and doing mini projects to support their cause - the Humane Society, Cat Action and the Salvation Army food bank.
The Grade 9 students of SIS would like to challenge other junior high students across the Island to support a local cause. The students would appreciate any donations from the public and will gladly accept non-perishable food items, canned cat and dog food, cat and dog treats, cat toys and balls, clean, washable toys for cats and dogs, non-clumping cat litter, items to enrich the lives of shelter animals and any other pet related supplies to help them in their fundraising efforts. Donations can be dropped off at the school or can be picked up by contacting Kelly MacNeill at 888-8470.
