The annual Terry Fox Run was a fabulous success. Following a whole-school warm-up at the font steps, the intermediate students walked to Connaught Park to run laps around the field, and the primary students ran a new route around the school. The change of venue added to the excitement of the day.
A big thank you to Mme Kulokas who organized the whole event and a big shout our to our students who shared Terry Fox's message of hope, courage and determination by running to raise funds to help cancer patients. Donations for the Terry Fox Foundation are still being collected so check back soon for a final total.
We couldn't have asked for better weather for the the Meet the Teacher evening and Welcome Back Barbecue. The sunshine and high spirits from the earlier Terry Fox run made for a carnival atmosphere. The hotdogs (which were generously donated by Maple Leaf Foods) salads and treats were delicious and parents and teachers were still happily chatting past 7 pm.
Thank you to the teachers who welcomed parents into their classrooms to find out what the year has in store and thank you to Team Purple, aka Quebec 2020 parents and students, who hosted this year's barbecue.
