Some School Happenings

Good Wednesday Morning Everyone:

I hope this note finds you all well. A few things to share:

* Our first school Mass is tomorrow at 9:30 am here at the school. Mr. MacLeod's grade 8 class will lead us. All parents and extended family members are welcome to join us.

* If you have not done so yet, please send in your order form for our Meet the Teacher evening on Oct. 4. The forms are due tomorrow if you would like to order pizza for your family for that evening. Thanks.

* Our fall fundraiser is associated with Little Caesar's and the purchases of "Pizza Kits". Information will come home tomorrow regarding this school fundraiser program.

* Our school's Terry Fox Run is happening tomorrow at 1:40 pm with an assembly to begin followed by the actual walk/run. Please join us if you can.

Individuals across Canada will lace up their running shoes to take part in the Terry Fox School Run. Our Simcoe Muskoka Catholic schools have always been active participants and have raised over 1.2 million dollars to date. This year, some of our students and schools are chipping in to help a very special Barrie resident hit his lifetime fundraising goal.

93 year-old veteran Will Dwyer has been raising money for cancer and participating in the Terry Fox Run for 36 years. He has raised more than $720,000 - a little short of his one million dollar target. After losing family and friends to cancer, he made it his mission to raise the money for cancer research.

Summer M, a grade 8 student from our school is one of Will’s biggest supporters. Donated money to our school run will all go to Canadian Cancer Research and Candle Lighters of Simcoe. The money directed to the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope funds will flow through Mr. Dywer's name to help him reach his $1,000 000 goal.

For this year’s Terry Fox Run, St. Charles in Bradford, St. Catherine of Siena, Saint Gabriel the Archangel, and St. Monica’s in Barrie will donate their fundraising money to Will’s cause to help him reach the one million dollar mark.
