A class at St. John Paul II have raised a good amount of cash in a very short period of time.
Scrolling through their phone contacts, 16 leadership class students called friends and family, selling $1420 worth of popcorn in 59 minutes.
"With school fees being taken out over the last two years here at our school, we're also losing out on our student leadership budget," explained teacher Ewelina Warchol. "Usually, that money would be used for student community bonding activities like barbeques, scavenger hunts, the Patriot Games as well as bringing in guest speakers.
There were two teams of eight that competed with a score clock to see who could sell the most popcorn, there were also individual prizes; for every two orders processed, a student got a prize.
Tomorrow (September 27), is the last day to support JPII's Leadership Team. $20 will get a box of 10 prepackaged popcorn bags and for those feeling adventurous, $40 gets a variety pack with four different flavours. Orders can be placed by phoning the school at (780) 992-0889.
