Ms Sinclair’s Grade 1 class at Alexander Park Elementary School has found a way to put some of their artwork to good use.

To raise some funds for three different charities, all chosen by the students themselves, the class put together a 2015 calendar featuring art work they themselves created this year.

Each month has one or two pictures, so every student in the class is represented in the calendar.

The three charities the children chose are Cops for Kids, the Cancer Foundation, and the Children’s Hospital.

“They couldn’t decide which of the charities they wanted, so they’re splitting it between the three,” said Sinclair.

This is the first time the class has ever done a project like this, and the students are excited to get it out into the community.

The calendars are $15 each, and are available at the school. It will also be available at other locations around town, which are yet to be determined.
