The main hallway of Quebec High School is providing shelter for the homeless, or at least a good venue to raise money for the underprivileged. Every lunch hour until the beginning of the holidays, one student will forego lunch to collect change for the Christmas Hamper Campaign from within a the school's newly built cardboard shanty.

Erratum

I would like to personally and on behalf of the members of the Oasis Day Care board apologize for the mistake that appeared in the Oasis Day Care article of December 4, 2008.

Great Article Mr. French

Mr. French, your article on Vincent Larochelle was excellent. In our class, reading and math were daily treats to be enjoyed. He and three others were captivated by The Hobbit. I'd like to use this occasion to encourage all parents to read to their infants as soon as possible. No other action will have as much of an impact on your child's future success in school.
