Terry Fox Cancer Fundraiser and Run – Friday, September 26 am.

All students have been raising money with Toonies for Terry and we were aiming at raising $1000.00. We raised $2150.00”! Congratulations students!  As a result each homeroom teacher received a pie in the face from a willing student in their homeroom as did both Ms. Ko and Mr. Hall, much to the pleasure of the student body! A wonderful pep rally showcased our athletes competing at this time of year in cross-country, soccer and volleyball, a video of Terry Fox and of course, the fundraising total.  Thank you to our leadership class, Ms. Ko, Ms. Mein and to our parent volunteers on an excellent day.
