LDV and the Chocolate Factory

While a golden ticket is not necessary to visit Leonardo Da Vinci Academy in Rivière-des-Prairies, an army of Grade 6 Oompa Loompas were still hard at work recently in a unique project meant to both foster school spirit and raise money for the Franco Di Giovanni Foundation. Concerned that school spirit was lacking in their school, earlier this year, Grade 6 students approached their teachers with an idea: transform February into “Friendship Month,” and under that theme, encourage the school population to send out tokens of their appreciation to fellow students. To sweeten the project, these tokens would come in the form of chocolate treats, with all the proceeds from each sale going to the Franco Di Giovanni Foundation, a cause close to the hearts of many at the school.
