TERRY FOX RUN
Families, we would like to say a grateful thank you for your generous donations to the Terry Fox Run. It always amazes us at how strong our community is and how we come together for a common cause. We know that in current times almost everyone either directly or indirectly is touched in some way or another by cancer. We are very proud to say that as a community we raised $1,703.80. We couldn’t be more proud of our Suns and the donation that we will forward to the Terry Fox Fund.
Thank you to Martin’s Family Fruit Farm for donating all the apples for our students today!

INTERNATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL DAY
On October 2nd, students, families and staff are encouraged to join schools across the country in celebrating International Walk to School Day (IWALK/IWHEEL), a day that celebrates all forms of active transportation including walking, cycling, scootering or travelling using a mobility device. We encourage you to be active with your child as they come to school and be part of the fun! If you’re on your way somewhere else and plan on driving to your next destination, consider walking and taking transit, or park/drop your child off at one of our ‘Drive to 5’ locations to walk the rest of the way. If you’re not able to join, encourage your child to walk with a friend!
Did you know October is also International Walk to School Month? If you’re feeling up to the challenge, consider celebrating active transportation all month long. Sandhills P.S has been registered for the Canadian Cancer Society’s ‘On Your Feet Challenge’.Your family can be registered at onyourfeetchallenge.ca to keep track of the active transportation kilometers you make. The ‘On Your Feet Challenge’ runs from October 7-25, with a registration deadline of October 7th. Our school goal is 6000 kms so we need your support!
Parking lot attendants needed for both before and after school. This is a paid position, and available to a community member who would like to have a positive impact on student safety. Training will be provided and there will be additional support from School Council members. Please contact Mrs. Murovec in the office for more details. Thank you!
