Grade 5 EA Venture Presentation“The Suitcase” and Bake Sale - Monday, May 2, 2016 (morning)

The Grade 5 class at St. Augustine School has been working very hard on their Entrepreneurial Adventure. In this program, students identify a cause or charity that interests them, create a company that produces a product or service, market that product or service and, finally, donate all proceeds to the identified charity.  The Grade 5 students have chosen to write and perform a play called “The Suitcase” that was originally created by Beatriz Pizano.  This is a story about a Syrian refugee settling in Canada and her mysterious suitcase.

The Grade 5 class will be kicking off Catholic Education Week​ by performing this play on Monday May 2, 2016​. It will take place in the gym​nasium. The Primary grades will be invited to watch the 25 minute play at 9:45 a.m. and the Junior grades will be invited to watch the play at 11:00 a.m.  The Grade 5 students will also hold a bake sale ​in the Learning Commons​ after each performance. The money will be used to support to support the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario CHEO’s “Project Stitch”. Project Stitch will allow CHEO to perform more day surgeries and cut wait times for children needing care.

Students are encouraged to donate $2.00 (or any amount) to watch the performance.  Nut-free baked goods will range in price from $0.50 to $2.00.   Another option for donations, CHEO will provide a tax receipt for donations over $20.00.
