Malden Central Public School was brimming with the Christmas spirit last Tuesday night as the local elementary school held its “Winter Wonderland Walk-through.”

The library and classrooms were filled with people making crafts, enjoying refreshments or purchasing baked goods while students provided musical entertainment for the parents, grandparents and other adults that attended the Christmas event.

“We have a variety of events going on,” noted principal Cheryl Barber.

Barber also pointed out the school also collected 2,751 canned goods and non-perishable food items, which will be distributed through the Amherstburg Food Bank. A total of 114 toys were also collected with those being donated to Sparky’s Toy Drive. Teacher Carol Vandervecht and her class helped organize and package the food and toy drives.

“I challenged the students to get over 2,700 cans,” explained Barber. “They were very excited about it. This is a very generous community.”

For their efforts in collecting food items and toys, Barber added the students will receive a popcorn and movie party. The collection took place over a period of time that lasted almost three weeks.

“A big thank you to our school community for doing such a great job,” she added.

The “Winter Wonderland Walk-through” had a “great turnout,” stated Barber and the emphasis on it is about families. She added the Malden Central Parent Involvement Committee (MCPIC) helped by  donating baked goods and in other ways as well.
