St. Boniface school held its annual Mission Day on Friday , June 25th from 12:45 until 2:45 p.m. Students, parents, grandparents and parishioners could take in many activities and events that were taking place in the main part of the school and out the back of the school.
First stop was the front foyer where mom Julie Kobe and principal Jo Ann Giesler were busy selling tickets. Tickets were a quarter each, everything was purchased by tickets.
Beside her was school secretary Diane Strickler who had a table set up with Freezies, which is also a big hit for the hot afternoon.
Next stop was the in the junior and senior kindergarten room with teacher Heather Shaver and DECE (Designated Early Childhood Educators) Laurie Zefferino busy with the 32 raffle prizes for both the young and not-so-young and Gwen King with the 5 guessing jars.
The tech side of the library was a real favourite for many of the students which was busy with several White Elephant tables manned by Grade 7 / 8 teacher Henry Bink. The main side of the library has EA’s Sue Weiss, Debbie Hamilton and Grade 6/7 teacher Leisha Huber taking pictures in a picture frame. They had several costumes for the students to dress up in for these photos.
Outside was grade 1 / 2 teacher Corinne Kennedy overseeing the games which included the hockey shots, ring toss, snakes & ladders, minigolf & raffles.
Playing a game for prize or for 1 tickets which made you eligible for a much larger prize.
Taylor Wetzel along with several students from grade 5 -8 helped with the face painting which was also done outside and was overseeing the grade 7 and 8 girls and some visitors in helping to do their face painting magic and nail painting.
Thank you to Nancy Zuzinjak for organizing the Mission Day activities and a very huge thank you goes to the parents and volunteers who helped the teachers and the many parents who supplied baking and items for the various booths and the parents, grandparents, families and parishioners who came out to support this worthwhile cause.
All the money raised will be going to the Free the Children and to the Canadian Red Cross
