Good morning,

Tomorrow we have TWO events happening.

On Wednesday, September 29th we are running for Terry Fox!  Come to school ready for walking or running to raise money and awareness for Terry Fox’s plight for cancer research.

In addition, tomorrow we will raise awareness about concussions. Have you ever bumped your head or body? We likely all have! In sports and active games, there can be risks involved. Rowan’s Law was passed in Ontario in honour of Rowan Stringer and also helps people who get concussions recover. All schools in Ontario must have rules in place to support awareness and help coaches, teachers, and parents know when a child has suffered a suspected concussion. It also lets the child know that they should immediately stop participating in physical activities and when they may safely return to play again.  Time will be taken tomorrow to learn more about Rowan and how to stay safe and healthy.

On Thursday September 30th, we will also observe the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation (Orange Shirt Day) and recognize, remember and honour First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and communities. It is a show of support and understanding of the history of the Residential school system that impacts many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people today.  Wear ORANGE on Thursday!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS:  Picture Day is on October 5th!
