Toonies for Terry:  The Terry Fox Walk will be held in the afternoon on Thursday September 27th.  Our school goal is to raise $500.00 and we CAN do this by simply bringing in a toonie.  Students are encouraged to wear Canada colours on Thursday.  We will be completing a short walk in the neighborhood and parents are encouraged to join us to keep Terry’s vision alive!!!

Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue.  It’s got to keep going without me.”

 

Orange Shirt Day:   Orange shirt day is an annual event that started in 2013 to recognize the legacy of Residential school system for First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and communities.  It is a show of support and understanding of the history of the school system that impacts many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people today.  The phrase “Every Child Matters” reminds everyone that children are such an important and integral part of our communities and that they are our future generations of change makers.  By wearing an orange shirt, we have an opportunity to bring awareness to the history of residential schools and to stand up against other injustices that may impact our children/students.  Since September 30th falls on a Sunday, we will wear orange this Friday, September 28th.
