Toonie for Terry

Dear Families,

Christ the King Catholic Elementary School is proud to be participating in the 2021 Terry Fox School Walk. On Friday, September 24, 2021 students will be taking part in the annual Terry Fox School Run. Our fundraising goal this year is $500.00 and we can achieve this goal if every student and staff contributes a Toonie!!

Our school is proud to play an important role in supporting cancer research. Through our participation in the Terry Fox School Walk/Run around the neighborhood, we hope to encourage leadership in our students and create positive agents of change in our wonderful school community.

We are very excited to be a part of this year’s Terry Fox Run. This is our opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from cancer.

We hope you will join us as our school community bands together in the fight against cancer.

All collections will be collected on school cash online.

Thank you in advance for your support!

We will be learning about our Umbrella Skills again this year. For September, our students will be learning the importance of Authenticity in promoting well being.

WHAT IS AUTHENTICITY?

  • Authenticity is the quality of being genuine or real and representing your true self instead of what you think others want you to be.  It is about staying true to your beliefs, being trustworthy, truthful, and ensuring that your actions match your words and values.

 

WHY DOES AUTHENTICITY MATTER? HOW DOES IT HELP US?

  • Authenticity is our ability to be our genuine selves, staying true to our values and beliefs, while still adapting to the world around us. Authenticity comes from having actions that match the words we say and not trying to be someone else to impress others. Authenticity helps us to feel confident in ourselves and it improves others’ ability to trust us, a characteristic highly valued in leaders. It also helps us create strong friendships and is a very important part of well-being.

 

RESEARCH-BASED OUTCOMES OF AUTHENTICITY

  1. Improves self-respect and self-esteem
  2. Increases your comfort in sharing your true thoughts and beliefs
  3. Authenticity improves emotional stability
  4. Genuine smiles (over polite smiles)improve our social interactions
  5. Improves our trustworthiness
  6. Improves overall wellbeing
  7. Helps us stand up for what we think is right, which reduces bullying

THEMES:

  • Practicing what you preach
  • Knowing what you can and cannot change
  • Doing the right thing, even when nobody is looking
  • Not worrying about what others think more than what you think
  • Knowing your true feelings and having the courage to share them
  • Questioning stereotypes
  • Being your true self whether that means you are different or the same as others
  • Standing up for what is right
  • Self-confidence
