Kelly Wheaton and her son Aiden Wheaton-Ware, grade 2
As a tribute to the wonderful teachers at Saint Columbkille, parents volunteered to make chili and tasty side dishes for a special lunch on Thursday, October 25. Saint Columbkille parents have long been involved at the school and help make it the amazingly vibrant community we all know and love.
A total of 40 families contributed to the event, with only one deemed the winner of the chili contest. Aiden Wheaton-Ware, grade 2, and his mom Kelly Wheaton, are this year’s Chili Cook-Off winners and were awarded a Saint Columbkille apron and cutting board for their efforts.
“Thank you – we are so pleasantly surprised,” says Kelly Wheaton. “I never make [my chili] the same way twice!”
In addition to voting for their favorite chili dish, teachers were asked to answer questions about what the cook-off meant to them and how it made them feel. A special thank you to Roisin Macioce and the Room Parent Committee for their dedication and time to plan this event. See below for a selection of photos from the contest.
