Breakfast Program - Research shows that ultimate learning potential occurs when students are not hungry.  Apples, oranges, granola bars & cereal bars will be available to students who need that extra little 'pick-me-up' to get them through morning classes.  Donations of the above items or cash donations would be greatly appreciated.  For more information, please contact Mrs. Leeder or Ms. Wynia @ 780-388-3881. Thank you to Carla Mackinaw for her donation of granola bars to the Breakfast Program.
