Terry Fox Goal Surpassed!

October24

Thank you to all of our students, staff, families and community members for supporting the 37th Annual Terry Fox Run at our school.  We set a goal of $150.00 per grade to celebrate Canada’s 150th and we more than doubled our goal by raising over $3020.00 for cancer research.

Many classes will be having Movie  Parties and/or treats to thank them for their fundraising and/or amazing T-Shirt designs and songs/chants during the event.  All students will be excited to know that there will be a SECRET STAFF SURPRISE to thank them for all their great work for Terry Fox! Stay Tuned….coming soon!
