Terry Fox Totals
We would like to thank all of the students, families, supporters and staff and who took part in our school's Terry Fox fund raiser and school run this year. The Terry Fox foundation is an "organization that still embodies the values of its founder; that funds cancer research projects that are innovative and daring; that has become an important part of community-building and fellowship" and your contributions have helped.
Our school raised just over $1700 this year which will help the foundation with their research projects. Way to go everyone!
Please remember to submit your Terry Fox Run/Walk/Bike selfies to the Student Guide Course.
Thanks again to those who participated.

- Terry Fox Fundraising Update
So far, we have raised $265.00. This is a great start to our Terry Fox Challenge, however, we are a long way short of our target. Mr. Roffe is feeling pretty comfortable and doesn't feel he has a lot to fear. He is not warming up his vocal repertoire!
