St. Catherine of Alexandria held its first ever Adoption Program in order to help promote and support Earth Day. Headed by Grade 3 teacher Maria Locker and funded by the entire school population, St. Catherine's was able to raise enough money to adopt 22 polar bears from the World Wildlife Fund. Each classroom received an adoption certificate from the WWF, as well as a polar bear of their own. The money raised went towards funding projects to help stop the melting ice caps in the Arctic, a problem that is causing Canada's polar bears to disappear rapidly. Joining Locker for a photo were students (from left) Pascale Colangelo of Garde 5, Taylor Smith of Grade 3, Haden Soler of Grade 6 and Evan Amaral of Grade 1.
