October 2022

Month's Highlights!

On September 19th, there was a bus safety workshop at school for all preschool students. To top it all off, they each received a great big hug from Bubusse!

On September 22nd, we held our Terry Fox Run. This year, our school raised $3020.50. This is an all time record! Frédéryck Drouin was given the Terry Fox shirt this year for having raised the most money. Ms. Turcotte's grade 5 class donated the most as a group. They will have a class privilege: shaving Mr. Piperno's beard!

September 30th was a special day at school: "Every Child Matters". Students were invited to wear an orange shirt for Canada's National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

October 1st was the 24th CQSB Cross-Country Run in Quebec City.
