The local community newspaper, Clark’s Crossing Gazette, featured the fundraising achievement. With the ultimate goal of raising $7, 500 for their extracurricular program, Greg Tebay, the principal of WCMS, issued a challenge where he would sleep on the roof of the school if the fundraising goal was met. Exceeding their expectations, the goal was surpassed after only one order.

We recently received terrific news from École Félix-Leclerc and we are delighted to share it with all of you. Back in June 2014, supporters had already raised more than $6,000 for a students trip to the Alps slated for 2016. In less than one year, supporters have added more than $8,000 to that number for a total of $15,506.30 to to date, the campaign will officially wrap up in 2016. That is quite impressive!
