Save-On-Foods is Western Canada's largest grocery retailer and their first Saskatchewan store will be opening this spring in Regina. This was a unique opportunity, because Save-On-Food's management team is interested in building relationships with the community and wanted to meet some of their new neighbours! The president, Darrel Jones and staff from Vancouver spent part of Thursday afternoon in our classroom with Mr. Jack MacKenzie and some of the students to learn about the Random Acts of Kindness Fund and projects we have been working on. They asked about the United Way Jewellery Project, The La Loche Project and the Santa Maria - Caring for Seniors Project. Save-On-Foods admired this commitment to the community and made a donation to Jack MacKenzie's Random Acts Of Kindness Fund.
They also designed their store's commercial around this, which will air on March 21, 2016. It will feature Mr. MacKenzie and eight students from our classroom working on the United Way Jewellery Project. To be fair to everyone, we held a draw on Tuesday and drew popsicle sticks to see who would be selected for the commercial. Unfortunately we couldn't choose everyone, but we will be making a poster with a picture of the class on it to thank Save-On-Foods that will include everyone. This will be hung up in the new store!

Dairy Berry Cafe performed a great dance for their customers!
Great job girls! You put a lot of effort into your cafe and worked so well as a group. The atmosphere was really enjoyable and we would all like to come back again!
