Thank you for a great week. Last Thursday, students in Grade 1 to Grade 6 watched an amazing presentation from Tribal Vision Dance. The multi-mediate show “Visions of Turtle Island” included live singing and dancing in Powwow and Haudenosaunee styles and ended this the Hoop Dance.
Looking forward to seeing your best smiles on Thursday, September 26 as we have our picture day.
Terry Fox Run
On Tuesday, September 24th, students in grades K-6 will be taking part in the annual Terry Fox School Run on our school grounds. (Rain/alternate date: Wednesday, September 25th). Students will be walking and running along a measured route, monitored by staff. Kindergarten students will have their run in the morning and Grades 1 through 6 will run in the afternoon after a short kick-off assembly.
Our school is proud to play an important role in keeping the legacy of Terry Fox going. Students will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the heroic efforts of Terry over the next week as well as raise much-needed funds for cancer research. Through our participation in the Terry Fox School Run, we hope to encourage leadership in our students and create positive agents of change in our wonderful school community.
Our school’s goal is to raise $1,000.00.
There are 2 ways to fundraise:
- Have your child bring in a loonie, toonie, or any spare change into their classroom to try and fill their teacher’s shoe.
- Donate online. It’s fast, easy and donors get a receipt immediately by email. Simply click: http://www.terryfox.ca/JeanStecklePSKitchener and this will take you directly to our school fundraising page on the Terry Fox Foundation website.
Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated and can be brought in on or before our school run day. In addition to fundraising, students are invited to wear red and white the day of the run to show their support. We thank you in advance for helping in any way you can!
We are very excited to be a part of this year’s Terry Fox Run. This is our opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those who have suffered, are suffering, and will suffer because of cancer. We hope you will join us as our school community bands together in the fight against cancer. Thank you in advance for your support!
