Thank you for all your support!

What a beautiful day for a run!  Today we participated in our school's Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research.  Our class contributed $64.00 in loonies, toonies, and even some 'paper money' to help continue Terry's dream of helping people afflicted with cancer.  We read about Terry Fox's life and made head bands with quotations from A Story of Hope.  I was impressed at how well the students listened to the story and recognized when the quotation from their own headband was mentioned.  Students shared stories of their own and showed empathy when learning about Terry's courage when he was diagnosed a second time with cancer. 
Thank you for all your support for our first fundraiser this year.
