COLUMBIA ELEMENTARY
The last day before the holidays is Columbia’s
annual PAC Pancake Breakfast. Many wonderful,
helpful, hard-working parents came bright and early
and turn the gym into Penticton’s finest pancake
house! Feeding a whole school of hungry children
takes thousands of pancakes. The older students help
out their little buddies with cutting and pouring
duties, all while the parent volunteers keep the
yummy pancakes coming. The parent group ends the
pancake day with special pancakes, berries, whipped
cream for the staff. It really is a wonderful tradition
at Columbia School.

KALEDEN ELEMENTARY
T
he students at Kaleden Elementary spent the first
three weeks of December focusing on the themes of
“Taking Care of Each Other”, “Doing Your Best for a
Better World” and “The Spirit of Giving”. With these themes
in mind, the school came together once again to collect
and donate items to “Kaleden Cares” food donation initiative.
B
eing a school of 100 students, the school set a goal
each week to try to donate 100 food items. They kept
track of the growing food donations and tally in their
foyer and watched the donations grow. Each week the students reached and surpassed their goal feeling a sense of
pride and accomplishment. The Kaleden School students
clearly took their caring December themes to heart!
