Terry Fox Run

terryfoxrun2017 (1)

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!

SMILE Donations

We are collecting donations for SMILE again this year. SMILE is a program that provides support and education to young expecting parents in need. There is a box outside the office to collect gently used baby and toddler items. Items such as clothing, books, toys, baby gear etc. are needed. We will be collecting until February 6th.

Thank you for your support!

Thanks to our McBride Donors!

Our Playground Fundraising continues!

We are optimistic about the dream of a new playground becoming a reality. Currently, our team of parents and staff have narrowed our options to the top submissions from Henderson and Habitat playground equipment suppliers. Both are in the $20,000 range as requested by our committee and give us room to add in the undetermined amount of installation expenses (estimated in the range of $5,000). Our fundraising total is climbing higher and depends on your contributions. We are hoping to do a push for the holiday so spread the word. Both playground options are posted in the school and we are accepting feedback on your these choices.

To find out more about the Playground Fundraising campaign, or to share with friends and family, download our donation letter here. Consider ways you could contribute to our fundraising: collect donations for your child’s birthday and give half to their gift and half to the school; give on behalf of friends and family at the holidays and send them this thank you card to acknowledge their contribution.
