Good News for High-Needs Elementary School

The ERA originally met St. Peter School's Principal Bruce Campbell when he came to pick up a laptop that had been donated to the school by ERA behalf of an anonymous donor. While speaking with him, it became evident that students at the school were in need of much more than one laptop. Knowing this, the ERA decided we needed to round up more computers for students at St. Peter's to provide them with the technology necessary to excel at their schoolwork and be given the same opportunities as their peers.

On June 17, ERA presented an assembly of children (between the ages of 5 and 11) at St. Peter School with laptops for 20 students to take home and share with their families. But we knew these kids deserved something extra special, so we called up The Calgary Flames mascot, the one and only Harvey the Hound, and asked him if he would come out and present the laptops with us. And, in exchange for just one three pound Milkbone, he did! We had to keep him hidden though, to ensure complete surprise. There is very little you can hide a six and a half foot bipedal dog-human behind, but we managed, and somehow not a single student spotted him prior to the big reveal.
