A reminder that the January PAC Meeting will take place next Wednesday, January 17th, 6:00-7:30 pm, in the library. This will be the first Spring Fair planning meeting. The Spring Fair is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Money raised pays for school supplies, field trips, enrichment activities such as drama, dance and visual arts programs, and other opportunities. There are countless ways you can help – both big and small. Please join us and learn more about how we can make the 2018 Spring Fair our most successful yet.
Our annual Terry Fox Run was held on Thursday, September 28th. A big thank you to Ms. Kayra for organizing this year. As well, a thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to support the run. We had a wonderful turnout. Thank you also to all of the families who generously donated to the Terry Fox Foundation. Together we raised $1004.95 to help support cancer research. This far exceeded previous year’s donations. What a fantastic success!
