Thanksgiving giving
Notre Dame student Ethan Brunelle was one of the school participants in the Thanksgiving Celebration held Thursday afternoon in the gym. Parents, students, staff and friends packed the gym for the celebration which was prepared by the Kindergarten team and Mrs. Murray-Morden’s class. As a school project the students created the Tree of Thanks and on the leaves they wrote what they were most grateful for. They also collected food for the food bank to remind themselves how precious the gift of food is and how through kindness they can share this gift with others. – Lucie Roy Photo

On Thursday afternoon Ken Skjersven of the Morinville Food Bank was assisted by Notre Dame Principal Marlene Pelletier in loading up the truck with the food donations collected by students and staff.
