We’re proud of our school and like to share our spirit.

School Spirit

Terry Fox Day


On Monday October 5, students at Chaparral School participated in our annual Terry Fox Run. Students have been working hard to learn about Terry's story and the history of his Marathon of Hope. Terry's message of perseverance and helping others is so powerful and extremely relevant for our school, our community, and our world, as we continue to push through the year 2020. 

We continued our fundraising efforts for the Terry Fox Organization this year and have challenged every student to bring in a 'Toonie for Terry'. Thank you so much for your generosity in making this happen!   Our goal  was to raise $1000.00 for cancer research. 

This year there were a few changes to the format of the event. Each class participated in their grade cohorts throughout the day.  Students started the day with an amazing video that Mr. Van Roekel, Mrs. Pehkonen, and Mrs. Buhler put together.  All the elements of our assemblies (O'Canada, Acknowledgment of the Land, Terry Fox video, and a warm up) were included in the video.  Throughout the day, students documented their efforts and a  closing virtual assembly was had on Tuesday, October 6.   

We are so proud of our students and the empathy that they demonstrate daily.  Way to go!
