Wear a special hat on Wednesday, May 4, to raise awareness for the importance of good mental health.
On Tuesday, May 3, over 40 students at Muir Lake will take a vow of silence for 24 hours. This is support of children around the world who do not have access to education, food, medicine or clean water. This is also to show support for students across Canada who suffer from bullying. Students are collecting money in the form of pledges from their friends and family.
This year all proceeds will be divided between to great causes. The first cause is Free the Children who will use the money to provide basic and essential items to children around the world.
This year half of the money will be give to one of our grade 6 students. Jacob will be visiting Guatemala in June. He will use the money raised to buy the material needed to build beds for families in Guatemala. Well done, Jacob. We wish you a safe and rewarding trip. Further questions can be directed to Mrs. Matsuba.
