(Sweet’s Corners, Ontario) Everyone learned that a cold spring evening can be hot, hot, hot if you attend the Annual Chili Night held at Sweet’s Corners Elementary School. For a mere $5 per person or $10 per family, the community was treated to an evening of great food, good company and old fashioned fun.

“This is a social event which is a fundraiser for Sweet’s Corners Elementary School,” said Jen Tidman, social representative on the Parent Council. “We had about 200 people show up for the event. It’s our largest fundraiser of the year, and in this case we’re raising money for all the school trips. We try to keep costs as low as possible for all the families when we get to go places like Foley Mountain, and this fundraiser helps a lot.” – to read more>

(SWEET’S CORNERS, ON) – Sweet’s Corners Elementary School has heart. Lots of heart. Not only are most of its students involved in getting themselves into better physical condition, but they all want to reach out to help others as well.

On September 26, the school held its annual Terry Fox Run which raised over $225 for the cause. Students learned a lot about Terry and his dream, and were excited to not only do this run, but to share that they had also participated in a cross country run at the Rideau High School with students from other schools in the Upper Canada District School Board. – to read more>
