Our Grade 5 Mayor

As part of the Grade 5 Social Studies curriculum, the children learned about local government. In Miss Bratt's grade five class, some of the students volunteered to run for class Mayor.  Five volunteer candidates ran.  Strong competition for the position ensued.   Olivia became the elected Mayor for her class.  Please see a few points she enclosed in her speech as she sought election from her peers.

  • I will lower taxes for everyone, so that they will have a little more money to spend on their families.
  • I plan to hire more police officers to help keep LaSalle safe for everyone.
  • I will add more street lights to help keep LaSalle safe.
  • I plan to find volunteers that will help build homes for those people who do not have a safe home to live in.
  • I will organize more can drives to help feed people who are hungry.
Great learning Grade Fives!   
Congratulations Olivia!  
Our LaSalle Community will be enriched with such well informed citizens.

Caring Cardinals Go Crazy for Cans

Sacred Heart kicked off the school year with their annual can drive and once again displayed their belief of helping their community.  Students raided cupboards and hit the streets of LaSalle asking neighbours to help them fill the shelves of St. Andrew’s Food Bank. Our students brought a enormous total of 2849 cans.  Classes competed against one another for bragging rights, but it was Mrs. Guthrie’s, Grade 6 Cardinals, that really knocked it out of the park. Her students brought in a whopping 949 cans.

A huge thank you goes out to all the student volunteers for their dedication and to the neighbours who supported our very important cause. In addition, the Sacred Heart Cardinals would like to thank the Lasalle Police Department who made two trips to the school and filled many cruisers to transport all the can goods to the LaSalle Food Bank.

A big THANK-YOU also goes out to Mason and Calum for helping us collect and tally all the food.
