The grade 6′ s at King Edward public school are happy to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Onward Hardware for raising money for their year end trip to Camp Belwood. A special thank you to Alyssa’s mom Stacey for making this all possible. We couldn’t have done it without them!

King Edward has two extra special entrepreneurs that spent some of their free time at home raising money for the many awesome initiatives here at King Edward. Emma and Bryce Gray opened up their own lemonade stand and made almost $70 in profits. When asked where they were donating their funds, they quickly responded “Our School”. Emma and Bryce’s mother told the school that the thanks goes to the kids, “It was all their idea!” King Edward is so fortunate to have so many students like Emma and Bryce who continue to give back to their school community. The King Edward team would like to thank Emma and Bryce for all their efforts and hard work at their lemonade stand! Way to go Lions!
