3. School Council Move-a-thon Fundraiser

School Council is holding their annual Move-a-thon on Friday, March 10th.  Students will be receiving pledge form packages next week so they can collect donations for this great event. For every $5 of donations, students will receive a draw ticket that they can enter to try and win some great prizes such as waffle breakfast, games with teachers etc.  Classes will all have a chance to go to the gym on March 10th to show off their great moves. The funds raised from the Move-a-thon will be put towards things such as: new technology, school-yard improvements, class trips and planners.  Watch for more details coming soon!
