Students at Mountain View Campus raised $1617.47 during the annual Ahmad Abbas fundraiser. All money collected from our community is shared with the Alberta Children’s Hospital here in Calgary. Jordyn Seminiuk from the Hospital was at our assembly on Thursday, December 7th to share how the Hospital uses this money. Students learned that our donations help children who are battling Cancer. Doctors do not have a cure for Cancer and our donations are helping them conduct research to find a cure. We were privileged to see Mr. and Mrs. Abbas at our fundraiser and thank them for allowing us to continue to honor Ahmed each year.

Thank you to Mountain View’s special events committee for organizing this wonderful fundraiser. Congratulations to Mrs. Tyrell’s class for raising the most money at $322.80; they have earned a free gym period with Mr. Cooper! Congratulations to Samira in 3T, she is our lucky draw winner and received a prize bag of educational items. We especially admire the creative ways that classes raised money this year! Great work students, staff and parents for demonstrating empathy through your donations to this incredible cause, which is so close to our hearts!
