MWS this week

Thank you to everyone that contributed to our Terry Fox Run last Thursday.  Our school learned about Terry's goals, set some for ourselves, practiced being active for a good cause and raised over $1700 for cancer research. Last week, running club members also enjoyed our elementary fun run in Medicine Hat.  It was a great week to be at MWS!.

A couple reminders for this week include:

Wednesday, October 5th - Constable Waites will be here to continue teaching the grade 6's the DARE program, which encourages children to make good decisions regarding drugs and alcohol throughout their lives.

Thursday October 6th - Our first monthly recognition assembly starts at 1:45.  Donna Serr from "Make a Wish" will be here to talk to the school about compassion.  It will be followed by fun PEACE group activities as part of our "Turkey Trot".

Friday, October 7th - Grade 6 field trip to Elkwater to study trees and forests.

Monday October 10th is Thanksgiving, and Tuesday October 11th is the PD day for students for October.  There is no school for students on these days.  Enjoy a super-long weekend together.
