Students of Mike Mountain Horse Elementary School make "Welcome Baskets" for new immigrants

April 4, 2019

When new immigrants arrive in Lethbridge, they will receive a very special welcome from the students at Mike Mountain Horse Elementary School. The students have put together "welcome baskets" to embrace newcomers as they make their transition to Canada.

Angela Kubik, a grade 4 teacher said, "we wanted our community initiative to connect with Immigration Services here in Lethbridge. And so we contacted Lethbridge Family Services."

There will be a total of six baskets, and students from grades one through grade five will be creating a postcard to be included in the baskets.

The school will be presenting the baskets to Immigration Services on Monday morning.
