Every September, JES remembers the legacy of Terry Fox and participates in the annual Terry Fox Run. Our students are encouraged to ask for donations from their families and friends with the goal of donating all money collected to foundations that are searching for a cures for various kinds of cancer. This year is no different. Tuesday afternoon, Miss Laura brought the entire school into the gym to watch a video about Terry Fox and to introduce the fundraising reward for the year.
In order to encourage the students to raise our goal of $2133.00, the staff has decided to challenge the winning House Team to a series of interesting match-ups which will surely be as entertaining as last year’s teacher-pie-in-the-face extravaganza!
To give the children an incentive to fundraise, Mr. Tremblay and Miss Tara demonstrated an example of what kind of challenges the students will be doing against staff members. The name of their challenge was called “The Toilet Roll Challenge”. This challenge was fierce but in the end, Mr. Tremblay was declared the winner.
Miss Laura went head-to-head against Marguerite, a Grade 5 student, and lost MISERABLY!!
Just wait and see all the other great ideas we have planned for when we reach our goal!
Remember, Terry’s dream was to have each Canadian donate $1 so please keep those pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and all other forms of $$ coming in!
