Terry Fox Run - RED & WHITE SPIRIT DAY!
Published on Sep 17, 2018 19:12

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

 

On Friday, September 21st, 2018 the students of Monsignor J.E. Ronan Catholic School will be taking part in the annual Terry Fox School Run (rain date: Monday, September 24th, 2018).


Students will have the opportunity to discuss the heroic efforts of Terry Fox over the next few days, and raise funds for cancer research. Through their participation in the annual Terry Fox School Run, we hope that our students will view themselves as positive agents of change, giving the best of themselves to Canada, just like Terry did.

 

There are many ways that we can contribute to this important event. We are asking that students collect donations (from friends and family, NOT door to door canvassing) in the form of a “Toonie for Terry”, in recognition of Terry’s courageous battle with cancer, and his tireless efforts to raise money for cancer research. Please see “The Terry Fox Run” school pledge sheet that was sent home Friday for additional information about donations for this event.

 

PLEASE RETURN PLEDGE SHEET AND MONIES TO YOUR CHILD'S CLASSROOM TEACHER BY THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH, 2018.

 

To ensure your child/children enjoy this event to the fullest, it is strongly urged that they:

  • Wear appropriate clothing for exercise and the weather conditions
  • Wear sunscreen and a hat
  • Bring a full water bottle with his/her name on it


Our students in Grades 4 to 8 will be walking down Centre Street, to Main Street, and back-up Centre Street. Our students in the FDK program and Grades 1 to 3 will be walking around our school field.

Please note, that in order for our students in Grades 4-8 to be eligible to participate off school property, they must return the Permission to Walk Form that was sent home on the first day of school.

  

We are very pleased to be a part of this year’s Terry Fox School Run, as we encourage our students to develop a sense of volunteerism and goodwill, while celebrating school spirit.

In order to help celebrate our school spirit, we are encouraging all students to wear RED & WHITE on Friday in honour of Terry Fox, a Canadian hero!


Thank you in advance for your support!

 

Sincerely,

The Monsignor J.E. Ronan Terry Fox School Run Committee
