Fundraising for What? It’s time for our Grade 6 French Immersion students to start their fundraising efforts to raise money for their Quebec Exchange that will take place in 2018. This exchange is organized and funded by the Grade 6 families. We are the last school in the district doing exchanges, and this is due to our strong community of parents who work hard to facilitate this rich language experience and cultural adventure. Thanks so much for your support in making this possible for our kids!

Looking for a great gifts in time for Mother’s Day, or to brighten up your doorways and decks for spring? Support the kids with a one stop shop for:

KM Club

Week three: In the middle of Friday’s run something weird happened at Kilometre Club. The kids got a strong whiff of a strange odor. It was Justin Trudeau’s aftershave. That could only mean one thing: they had reached Ottawa.

Truly, the Kilometre Clubbers are racking up heroic mileage. Almost 3500 km, now, and it’s only the end of week three! This week the kids — all 190 of ‘em — ran 1031 km. (F12 alone logged 104 km.) At this pace they will hit Nova Scotia by early May, dip a toe in the Atlantic, and turn around and head back.

Will they make it all the way home? That’ll depend on the numbers. And the speed.

No one is doubting the heart. 

Week one and two updates available on last week’s post
