Terry Fox Walk & Run

MES will be participating in our annual Terry Fox Walk/Run on Friday, September 29th at 10:30 AM.  All MES students will be participating and we welcome parents to join us for this event as well!   The optional ‘Run’ portion of the event will happen during noon recess on the school yard.

We will be educating the students on who Terry Fox was, why we do the walk, and what the Terry Fox Foundation is all about.  We will also be encouraging students to bring in Toonies for Terry.  The class that raises the most money for the Terry Fox Foundation will win a dodgeball game against the staff of MES!  Please bring in any fundraising money by Friday, September 29th.

Thank you for your support.
