At Ecole St. Mary School, we are fortunate to have a number of community organizations supporting us in what we are doing for our children.
THE LETHBRIDGE KIWANIS CLUB OF GREEN ACRES
For the past several years, The Lethbridge Kiwanis Club of Green Acres (http://www.lethbridgekiwanis.org) has adopted our school as a special project. They generously donate food to provide breakfast and lunch for those students whose families are not able to do so.
May God bless all of you, and the work you do for His precious children.
WARD BROTHERS CONSTRUCTION, LTD.
Ward Brothers Construction, Ltd. has donated $400.00 to our school to be used for Perfect Attendance Awards. Therefore, we are able to draw the names of two students each month from among those who have been present and on time every day for the previous month. These students are presented with awards of twenty dollars each. The awards provide an incentive for students to attend all the time, and reward those who do so.
BIG BROTHERS / BIG SISTERS
Starting in September 2011 our school entered a partnership with Catholic Central High School and Big Brothers / Big Sisters of Lethbridge to create a mentorship program. 15 students in grades 4, 5 and 6 were partnered with high school students and particiapted in a variety of relationship building activities. The sessions are held over a 16 week period during the lunch hour. Many of our students benefit from this program as they are able to develop positive relationships with older students. The program leaders prepared meals for the students and engaged them in many fun and interesting activities.
