Abbotsford class creates video and cards to thank front-line workers

Eugene Reimer Middle School students create A Little Something to Make You Smile

A Grade 7 class at Eugene Reimer Middle School in Abbotsford has created a video and delivered handwritten cards in honour of front-line workers.

The video by students of teacher Nerlap Sidhu is titled A Little Something to Make You Smile. It’s dedicated to doctors, nurses, veterinarians, firefighters, military, police and search and rescue.

They invited students from other schools to participate in the video: Blue Jay Elementary, Harry Sayers Elementary, Howe Middle School, and W. A. Fraser Middle School.

Sidhu said the message they wanted to share is: “We will never forget what you are doing for us! We appreciate you.”

The 90 students also designed more than 200 handwritten cards for the workers and raised funds for over 180 pre-packaged snowman cookies.

Principal Ian Levings and teacher Robb Rutley delivered the cookies, cards and coffee, while teachers Shelley Sangha and Sukh Bains edited the video.

Starbucks and the Fraser Valley Indo-Canadian Business Association teamed up with the students to make it all happen.

“There is so much learning and empowerment that happens when we give back collaboratively. It’s incredible what you can do when you work together,” Sidhu said.

Previous projects that Sidhu’s students have participated in include the Equity Backpack Project, a We Are Canada video and web page, and a Lean on Me music video to front-line workers.
