Update on Terry Fox Run

Terry Fox Run

Monday, Oct. 2, was the perfect reschedule day for our Terry Fox Run/Walk. The weather was perfect for our students to walk or run the neighbourhood and everyone received an apple snack. The Junior and Intermediate students followed a course from the school to Wexford, along Natanya and back up Carrick to Whipper Park. The Primary students walked the park and the Kindergarten students walked around the school.


Each day last week we learned facts about Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope and collected toonies for Terry. Congratulations Watson, our grand total donation for the Terry Fox Foundation this year is $1002.00, $252.00 more than our goal.

Special thanks to Mrs. Hand and Mrs. Davies for arranging our apple snacks.
