Last week was busy! The Terry Fox Run was a wonderful day and it was amazing how many students ran for the entire time. A big thank you goes out to those who were able to make a donation to the Terry Fox foundation, our leadership students who encouraged others to run the course, parents who could join in and Mrs. Fraser for organizing the event! Orange Shirt Day was also a success! Many students wore their orange shirts and thanks to Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Lee our students are more informed about the impact of Residential Schools through presentations, books, videos and the orange hand projects posted in the front window.
This is a message from PAC: The deadline to order hot lunch on-line is Wednesday, September 28th at midnight.
