Thanks to Dianne Sankey for organizing this fun, community building event.

From the school newsletter:
As you may be aware, Hastings Elementary is our sister school. They have asked us if we could provide two Christmas hampers for two families in need. A great idea is to have a whole class involved. If you are interested in leading this project with your class, please contact Mme Lavoie. She has the family’s profile and wish list. The Christmas hampers will be picked up by a social worker from Hastings Elementary on December 12th.
A huge thank you to all the Tennyson families who have donated to this year's Winter Clothing Drive -- your generosity is greatly appreciated. We've received boxes and boxes and boxes of warm winter clothing for donating to families at our sister schools in East Vancouver.
If you haven't donated yet, there's still time... the drive wraps up tomorrow, Wednesday, November 14. For more information, see our Winter Clothing Drive page.
Thank you to Sally Otto for arranging this year's Winter Clothing Drive.
