Loonie/Townie Sale 2019

Author: Tamara Valentino

Thanks to donations of new and used toys, books and decorations from the Pythagoras Academy community, the loonie/toonie sale was a huge success. On Monday December 9th and Tuesday December 10th students had the opportunity to shop for gifts for their family members and friends and wrap them with the help of parent volunteers. Before the students visited the sale, they carefully thought about two people they wanted to buy gifts for and understood that this shopping wasn’t for them, but about giving to others in the Christmas spirit.  This was a wonderful chance for students to learn about giving and reusing as well as participating in helping others at this time of year. Our school generously raised $740 dollars. This money will be donated to the Richmond Food Bank to help our local community.
