The natural light helps stimulate the body’s defenses, inclu- ding producing vitamins A and D, which in the initiative to raise funds for UWCPR.“They are so much fun to work with,”said Densmore about the teachers and staff “and (they) are incredibly passionate about their kids and teaching them to invest in the community they live in. It’s critical that we instil these lessons in the next generation. The board and I feel that the strength of a community lies in the quality of its leaders. The teachers in our community have blown us away with their commitment and generosity.” The UWCPR raised funds for a variety of social programs throughout Prescott-Russell including improving access to early childhood learning, brea- king the poverty cycle by meeting basic human needs, and improving access to social and health related services.

“These teachers and principals are setting a huge example for their students,”said Jodie Dens- more of UnitedWay/Centraide of Prescott-Russell (UWCPR). “They are teaching them to give back to their community and become part of the com- munity.

A lot of students benefit from our programs.” Principals, teachers, administrators and staff across the Prescott-Russell area took on a great challenge in December to dress up as super heroes if their school’s students raised funds for the UWC- PR. School boards from the French Public, French Catholic, and Upper Canada District were involved
Vankleek Hill Collegial Institute Principal Angela Grandy, along with Vice Principal Donna MacGillis, took the challenge and dressed up like super heroes when the students reached their fundraising goals for United Way/Centraide of Prescott-Russell.
