Once again, Clear Water Academy students have been asked to assist the poor around the world through contributions made to the Holy Childhood Association (HCA).
 
Boxes, similar in size to those used for small milk containers, will be distributed to students from JK to Grade 6 this week and next. Students are encouraged to assemble their boxes and collect change when they go 'trick-or-treating' and to their All Saints' party, or to approach family and friends. 
 
Last year, Clear Water Academy students were able to raise $1125.74 for this worthy cause.
 
Students are asked to return the boxes by November 6 to either the Keller Hall or Bessborough Hall reception areas. 
 
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Manarey by EMAIL.
