September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
At Parkland Village School we are asking all students to wear an orange shirt on September 30th.
We had our Terry Fox kick off assembly on Friday, Sept. 16. Terry had a goal to find a cure for cancer and to have each Canadian donate $1.00 to cancer research. This year we are asking each student to write their goal on a running shoe which will be placed on the Terry Fox Poster in the front Lobby. The staff are challenging the students to raise $500.00 for Cancer Research and if they are successful the staff will participate in a pie eating contest. We would like to thank Save-On-Foods for the pies they have donated for this activity on Sept. 29, 2016 at 1 p.m. Start bringing in those Toonies to help Terry continue his Marathon of Hope at our school. See you on the 29th!
We would like to thank Mr. T for coming to our school and talking to us about bus safety. We learned the rules that we need to follow when riding the bus and how to evacuate the bus by using the back door when there is an emergency on the bus. Remember to stop when you see the red flashing lights on the bus so that we get to and from school safely!
