St. Francis Students Supporting a Friend

pictured - Avery Houle and Emma Hickey - two grade 4 St. Francis students who helped out their friend by raising $285.35 to support Karissa Kruk and her family during her illness.

September 17, 2012 - Avery Houle and Emma Hickey, two Grade 4 students at St. Francis Catholic Elementary School took it upon themselves to try to lend a helping hand for a fellow student. These young ladies demonstrated Christian kindness and empathy through their actions to help Karissa Kruk, a student from St. Francis who was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia this past summer. Avery and Emma, over the Labour Day weekend, sold lemonade for 50 cents a glass, for Karissa resulting in an outstanding $285.35 raised! They were helped by Emma's grandparents, John and Denise Hickey, who gave them the idea. Congratulations to these two students for their hard work and caring. They plan to sell more lemonade in the very near future. Well done ladies!
