Armleder Card Committee

Card Committee was formed almost 8 years ago by 4 Grade 2 students who wanted to spread love throughout the school.  The Committee's work became so loved that they began to send holiday cards to families, friends and supporters. The Card Committee has made a lasting impact on many individuals over the years! They have sent Thank You Cards to the donors of our fantastic soccer field, and continue to spread love to students, staff and families. Their first event 8 years ago was in Washington Park for City Flea where they spent the Saturday personalizing cards for individuals and all money went to the Armleder Scholarship Fund which still lives on today!
