TERRY FOX RUN

The month of June will be Terry Fox month at Prestige School. In 1980, Terry Fox inspired us all with his Marathon for Hope – his cancer awareness and inspiration to help fund research to find a cure. Today, the Terry Fox organization is one of the leading cancer research organizations in Canada.

We at Prestige School are proud to be part of the Terry Fox family, and we dedicate this month to Terry’s legacy. In the next couple of weeks, each grade will learn more about Terry and his organization. Students will further have running exercises to simulate our annual Terry Fox Run during Zoom physical education classes. Like every year at Prestige School, we raise funds for the Terry Fox Organization. Mr. Quick has set up Prestige School’s fundraising page. Click on the link in order to donate. Every dollar counts! Fundraising ends on June 24th.

Let’s all be like Terry and thank you for your donations!

JUMP ROPE FOR HEART

On Friday, June 4th, students in KG to grade 8 watched a kicked off video to explain the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser.

The focus of the Jump Rope for Heart this year is to promote four healthy habits:

“Healthy Habits are EASY!

Eat fruits and vegetables.

Active for 1 hour or more.

Screens for less than 2 hours.

Yes to water and no to sugary drinks.”

Mrs. MacBean has set up Prestige School’s fundraising page. Click on the link in order to donate and help us reach our goal of $2000! Fundraising ends on June 24th.

Jump Rope for Heart will take place on Tuesday, June 22nd on Zoom.

Thank you for your donations.

PET APPRECIATION WEEK

Next week, Sunday, June 6 to Saturday, June 12, is Pet Appreciation Week. Since Prestige students have always shown love towards animals, we thought it would be nice to honour our animal friends.

Please email a picture of you and your pet (or stuffed pet if you don’t have a live pet), along with the pet’s name and why you love your pet to Mrs. Amanda at amanda.morris@prestigeprivateschool.com. You and your pet will be mentioned next week on our social media.

Thank you for helping us celebrate the wonderful animals in our lives.

REPORT CARDS

On Tuesday, June 8th, students in grades 9 to 12 will receive their Progress Report Cards. This report card will indicate any missing assignments. The semester is almost over, so make sure to get all assignments submitted before the final exams.

NATIONAL INDIGENOUS HISTORY MONTH

In June, Canadians celebrate National Indigenous History Month to honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. June 21st, is recognized as National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate the cultural richness and contributions First Nations, Inuit and Métis people have made in shaping Canada.

The Government of Canada has provided resources to assist in celebrating National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day. Check them out this month with your family.
