    Scrooge doesn’t live here in Edmonton! This year, the second annual Dickens Fest event committee graciously chose our Foundation as their charity of choice. During November and December, The Citadel Theatre and the Downtown Business Association encouraged Edmontonians to dress up Dickensian, visit the holiday market to purchase a $10 giftbag that included a handmade tree ornament and a $20 Cloud Nine Pajamas coupon and attend the play ‘A Christmas Carol.’ To showcase great things happening in schools, students from the John A. McDougall School music program showed up prior to the start-up of the December 8 play and performed some festive tunes. Many thanks to the committee for allocating a portion of profits made through these activities – $1,280 and counting – to support full-day Kindergarten.

    Service to community plays a significant role in the philanthropic culture that exists within all
    213 Edmonton Public schools. Every year, students and staff provide financial, in-kind and volunteer support to local, provincial and global non-profit organizations. They are also eager to help level the playing field at District schools that reside in socially vulnerable neighbourhoods.

    That’s why we nominated the J. Percy Page High School Team of students and staff for a 2018-19 District Recognition Award, which was presented on December 4.
