Toonies for Terry

A HUGE Thank You to our school community!!! Due to your generous support of our Terry Fox Walk, we raised over $5000 to go towards fighting cancer in Terry's memory! This is the most we have ever collected. Way to go Southview! We still have a few donations trickling in and our online donation link will be active until the end of this week if you'd still like to make a donation. We would like to also thank Mrs. Collins, Mrs. Myers and their students for the amazing job they did organizing and promoting this event. It was a fantastic day.
