Terry Fox Activities
To date the Terry Fox Foundation worldwide has raised over $600 million for cancer research in Terry’s name through the annual Terry Fox Run, held across Canada and around the world. We at Random Island Academy would like to help contribute to this great cause.
Our Fundraising Goal: $300!!!
Last year we raised close to $200 for this cause. This year we want to beat that amount. If we reach our goal of $300 this year’s Student Council President, Brandon Wiseman, has agreed to be dressed up by my his newly elected Student Council. The costume is a secret, not even Brandon knows; therefore if you want to see Brandon dressed up let’s get donating!!!
We will have a donation can in the office for any donations you wish to make. We will keep the can in the office until Wednesday, September 17th.
Student-Teacher Dodge Ball Game:
Grade 7-12 representatives from each homeroom will be playing against their teachers on Monday, September 15th, last period. What we ask is that all students, K-12, who come in to watch the game pay a $2.00 admission to go towards our fundraising for the Terry Fox Foundation. $2.00 is only a suggestion but not a requirement, please donate as you wish.
Annual Terry Fox Walk, Monday, September 15th (now moved to Tuesday September 16th – due to weather).
– Walk will start at 9:00 and go to the Salvation Army Cemetary in Hickman’s Harbour.
– This year we will be doing a run as well. Any 7-12 students ONLY that wish to run please see Mrs. Smith by the end of Friday. We will be running to the Salvation Army.
Student Council will be having a bake sale in aid of our fundraising efforts on Tuesday, September 16th.
Walk to Breakfast
The Walk to Breakfast is taking place on Monday, September 15th (now moved to Tuesday September 16th – due to weather) in coordination with the Terry Fox Walk. We will be cooking pancakes for all students to have for their breakfast as they return back from the Terry Fox Walk. If you would like to volunteer to help with the cooking and serving of the pancakes, please contact Sandy. In the past we have asked parents to send along non-perishable breakfast items such as cereal, jam, butter, juice, cheese whiz, etc. to be served at our Breakfast Program here at the school. You can also send along monetary donations marked in a envelope or items such as yogurt tubes or bread which we can freeze and use as needed. Please support the Random Island Academy Breakfast Program as it does benefit your child.
Thank You in advance for you support to this great cause! It is very much appreciated by all!
Sincerely, RIA Student Council
