Terry Fox Events at Spruce Glen PS!

Spruce Glen Public School will be hosting several Terry Fox events throughout the month of September.  We have a variety of fundraising events planned and a “Meet the Staff” BBQ planned for you.  Last year Spruce Glen raised just over $5000 with your support.  We are looking forward to another successful year!

This year our school will be setting a goal of $5000 for the Terry Fox Foundation. In September we talk about setting goals for the year and we acknowledge the outstanding goal that Terry Fox set for himself (and others). Our Intermediate Leadership Team will be helping to plan and organize various fundraising activities as outlined below.

Events/Dates:

  1. PLEDGE FORMS GO HOME – Friday, September 9. Students will receive pledge forms. Please encourage your son/daughter/children to approach family and friends only. Many students joined the online pledging last year and it made it easier for friends and families to donate. If you are interested in setting up an online pledge form, please visit https://terryfoxschoolrun.org/students/.  Door-to-door fundraising is not supported.  Pledge forms are due back to the school on Monday, September 26.
  2. HEADS OR TAILS – Friday, September 9, Friday, September 16 and Friday, September 23 (in our morning assemblies). Students can bring $2 to play. Each student chooses a side to stand on and if the coin flips in their favour, they continue to move on to the next round. The last student standing wins a prize!
  3. MEET THE STAFF BBQ/TERRY FOX FUNDRAISER – Thursday, September 22, 2022 5-7:00.  Food and drinks will be sold at the BBQ and all proceeds go toward the Terry Fox fundraiser. Our Intermediate Leadership Team will be assisting in set-up and clean-up for the evening. We hope to see you there! In the past, we have asked our primary classes (Grades JK-3) to bake cupcakes for this event and we would like to continue with that. Please look for more information coming home with your child. We look forward to meeting you and supporting this cause at Spruce Glen! Thanks.

TERRY FOX RUN AT SPRUCE GLEN – Friday, September 23, 2022. This is the date that was selected by the Terry Fox Foundation for all of the school runs! All community members are welcome to attend and participate. We will use our playground as our track to walk, jog and/or run around.
