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!

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird? https://t.co/W2MjY26FrR

RT @kinggeorgecbe: Le défi du flocon de neige a commencé! Comment est-ce que tous les élèves dans chaque classe vont créer un flocon de neige qui est aussi grand que Mme Shafina ou Mme Renée, en utilisant seulement le papier, les ciseaux et la laine? @CBELanguages #WeAreCBE https://t.co/F6vE6jP5td
