Hello Kindergarten Families!
We may be in store for a few wet days this week. Please send your child to school dressed for the weather because if it is not raining at the time of recess, we will be taking the children outside to run and play. *Boots and a raincoat are very helpful.
Terry Fox Run
On Wednesday, September 29, Grace Christian School will participate in its twenty-first annual Terry Fox School Run. In their respective cohorts at scheduled times, students will run, jog or walk laps of the school soccer field in tribute to Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.
Students will not be canvassing for pledges, but donations will be gratefully accepted beginning Sept. 23rd until Sept. 29th by homeroom teachers or through e-transfer. To electronically donate, use the email firstname.lastname@example.org with Terry Fox in the subject line and the student’s name in the message. All funds received will be sent to the Terry Fox Foundation to assist in the ongoing fight against cancer. If you are not familiar with the great Canadian Terry Fox, you can learn more by clicking on the link below:
Thank you for partnering with us to share Terry’s legacy of service, perseverance and sacrifice with our students.
