Good morning Chargers, for tomorrow and Friday; that’s September 23 and 24th, Garth Webb will be running a few events for each grade to get involved in the annual Terry Fox fundraiser. This year, Grade 9s will be participating in a variety of track events, a footrace, and obstacle course on the football field. The theme for this event will be “sports/jerseys,” so bring your athletic gear to the field! Period A Gr. 9 teachers are reminded to bring your class to the field for the planned time slot, as there is limited time for each class! Grade 10s, 11s, and 12s will be partaking in a virtual assembly, online trivia, and a few other physical activity options to get everyone inspired. Teachers, check your email for the virtual assembly options to do with your class - this can occur at any time in the morning! All grades are encouraged to wear any athletic jerseys or sports wear that they may have! On February 21, 1981, Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope across Canada to raise money for cancer research. It was Terry’s goal to get every Canadian to donate $1 towards cancer research, so let's all get involved and donate online at http://www.terryfox.ca/GarthWebbSSOakville. Teachers are asked to post this link to their classroom websites, and the link/QR code will be posted around the school. Donations will all be made online this year. We run not only for Terry, but for all who have been affected by cancer. Every dollar donated brings us that much closer to finally finding a cure and fulfilling Terry’s dream. Let’s all do our part and make Terry proud. GO CHARGERS!!!
