Terry Fox, Know Your School, and Orange Shirt Day

A few reminders before the end of the week.

Tomorrow morning we have our Terry Fox Run.  We will be doing laps of the field starting at about 9:00 and families are more than welcome to come cheer, join in running, or mark popsicle sticks as kids complete laps.  We are closing in on our donation goal and will be accepting cash and pledge sheets over the next couple of days.

Know Your School Night is tomorrow as well.  If you ordered pizza you will be able to pick it up from tables by the swings starting at 5:30.  Informal classroom visits will start at 6:15, and there will be a short presentation in the gym starting at 6:45.  The PAC will be selling the very attractive Deep Cove clothing in the gym before and after the presentation.  Cash or cheque required for the clothing purchases.

Orange Shirt Day is Friday.  This initiative carries with it the slogan "Every Child Matters," and raises awareness of the history of the residential school system in Canada.  If you are wondering about age appropriate materials to continue these conversations at home please contact your child's teacher.

A busy but exciting couple of days ahead of us.
