Students get cracking for Christmas

For the past five years, Grade 4/5 students at Aspenwood elementary school in Port Moody have collected their Halloween candy to be loaded into homemade crackers they craft from old toilet paper rolls, ribbon and wrapping paper.

On Wednesday, the students teamed up with their "little buddies" from younger grades to assemble the crackers, which are then distributed to local seniors homes for their holiday activities.

"I love it because it's a whole school activity and everyone gets on board," said the initiative's coordinator, Grade 4/5 teacher Ann Kirkhope. "It's a wonderful community event where parents, teachers and students are all involved helping to add Christmas cheer to a Senior's day."
