This past Christmas season, Woodhaven’s Grade Six students delivered homemade Christmas cards to residents around our school as part of our Woodhaven Connects program. This program gives each grade an opportunity to do a special activity or event with citizens in the community.
We as Grade Six students had a great time both creating and delivering the cards. In total, approximately 200 Christmas cards were delivered! Some people were so thankful that they sent their own Christmas cards to tell us how much they loved them. We even received a Christmas card back from the mayor, Mr. Stuart Houston!
By doing this, we spread Christmas cheer to people all over Spruce Grove and got a chance to connect with our community. We loved going into the community and building relationships with the people. It was a lot of fun! We think that it’s important to participate in Woodhaven Connects because it’s meaningful to give back to the community when they have done so much for us. Giving back also teaches us that helping out and caring for people is very rewarding.
