St. James Catholic School “Care Bears” Make a Difference

Junior Kindergarten student Jordan Primeau is bravely battling leukemia with the love and support of family, friends and fellow students at St. James Catholic School

March 13, 2006 - Walk into St. James Catholic School in Lively and you will quickly take notice of their slogan, "The Home of the Bears." But on Thursday, March 9 more than 400 students at St. James became "The Home of the Care Bears" as they celebrated "Jordan Primeau" day as a tribute to Jordan, a Junior Kindergarten classmate who is battling leukemia at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

The one day campaign, spearheaded by Student Council met with an overwhelming outpouring of support from the students, staff and parent community of St. James as the Student Council collected $1,400 from the students. This collection will be forwarded to the Primeau family to help offset costs for Jordan's recovery.

Student council members were equally thrilled at the response from their classmates who worked from the heart on special projects of get-well wishes for Jordan. These projects of cards, poems, stories, prayers, books, and puzzles will be delivered by Jordan's teacher, Rosanna Battigelli directly to Jordan as she will visit him during the March Break at TorontoÂ’s Hospital for Sick Kids.

Although most students at the school have not met Jordan Primeau personally, the students keep Jordan in their thoughts and prayers daily. Mrs. Battigelli and her Junior Kindergarten class have been in regular contact with Jordan via the phone to ensure that Jordan is still part of their class. Mrs. Battigelli also organized a book fair where another $1,400 of proceeds will also be donated to the Primeau family.

The Student Council would like to take this opportunity to emphasize to the Sudbury community that donations to the Jordan Primeau Fund are still being accepted at St. James Catholic School at 280 Anderson Drive in Lively. For further information, please call 692-3974.
