The Cornerstone Co-op supports a Bags for Breakfast program which funds donations from the Co-op to many BTPS schools. This program encourages our staff, students and families to use recycled bags which will lessen the amount of single use plastic in the landfills and increase how much the schools can feed students. This year the Cornerstone Co-op donated a total of $8,635 to Amisk, Clandonald, Delnorte-Innisfree, Dewberry, Provost Public, Wainwright Elementary, Wainwright High, Mannville, Vermilion Outreach, Vermilion Elementary, and J.R. Robson Schools. This year, the Superintendent, Rhae-Ann Holoien, Deputy Superintendent, Michelle Webb, and the Assistant Superintendent, James Troddin pumped gas at the Wainwright Co-op to support the Bags for Breakfast program and even did a TikTok video with our Co-op partner.
“BTPS students benefit from the generous donations from the Cornerstone Coop with this program. We are very appreciative of the partnership with our local Co-ops,” commented Superintendent, Rhae-Ann Holoien.
