Students and teachers came to school wearing jammies and housecoats. They chewed gum and wore hats during class. They were even allowed to eat outside of their own classroom.

But it wasn’t out of rebellion. It was all in support of the Fort St. James Toy and Food Drive.

On Nov. 26, children brought money and/or non-perishable food donations to help those in need during the Christmas season.

One donation went towards one rule that could be broken during the day. Gum was available for purchase.

The school’s Act of Kindness Program organized the event and all proceeds from the day will go towards food and toys for Christmas food hampers.
