A favourite day among students looking for a good snack is once again returning to Eckville Elementary School. The School will be hosting another Popcorn Day, on May 16.
Popcorn Days entail a local volunteer visiting the school to make popcorn for students. Students bring a dollar to purchase a bag of the snack for themselves. Popcorn Days not only are something for the student body to look forward to. The proceeds from this month’s Popcorn Day – like those of others -will, in their entirety, be donated to support a local cause.
Although the cause this month’s proceeds will support wasn’t available before the press deadline of this week’s issue of the Eckville Echo, Stacy Opsahl, an Administrative Assistant at Eckville Elementary School said that the School always decides on a worthy cause. Opsahl referenced back to January, when proceeds from that month’s Popcorn Day went toward Santas Anonymous.
