Cortes Island School PAC
Bottle Drive Thanks:
Thank you Cortes Island for helping make our school bottle drive a success. Thank you to all the kids, school alumni, parents, and grandparents who came out to sort bottles in the rain today. It was a five hour event and we sorted an entire cube van load!
Thank you Bertha for years of donating your van, your time, and bringing the bottles to Campbell River for us. We appreciate your generosity to the school!
Greenhouse Construction Work Bee Thanks:
We would also like to thank all the parents, kids, grandparents, school staff and FOCI members who came out last weekend in the snow and wind for our greenhouse construction work bee. The school greenhouse is up and waiting for us to install its plastic skin once the weather warms up. The students will be growing crops throughout the year in the greenhouse; spring starts and early crops, hot summer crops, and late fall and winter crops. Thank you FOCI Youth Initiatives for this wonderful addition to our Sustainability Education Garden-to-lunch Program.
