Excitement is building for the Terry Fox Run (Toonies for Terry) on Thursday, September 27. Please make sure students are dressed for all weather on this day. Rain or shine we will be outside to support cancer research and the Terry Fox Foundation. Please make a donation on line through School Cash. On this day only we will accept toonies brought in by students.
Rowan Stringer was just 17 when she died in May of 2013 after what proved to be a fatal concussion during a high school rugby game in Ottawa. It was her second concussion within a week. The coroners inquest that followed cast a harsh light on youth sports organizations, pointing to a lack of protocols that experts said must be addressed in order to keep our kids safe!
Hence the creation of Rowan’s law, which currently guides our concussion protocol in schools, sports organizations and recreational facilities. Now every year we remember the life that was lost and how it helped guide the law that protects our children and youth today. Wear purple tomorrow to show your support for Rowan and concussion awareness. See the presentation link below.
Tryouts for co-ed flag football are cancelled this morning due to the rain. The next practice will be Wednesday, September 26th at 8:00am.
The Intermediate Boys 3 Pitch Tournament is postponed until September 28th due to the rain today.
Individual student photos only will be taken on Thursday, September 20th. We will not be taking class photos on this day. The class pictures will take place some time during the spring in an outdoor setting. More information on this will follow later in the year. This change will allow more students to be included in the class photo, given we are a growing school and have many registrations throughout the year.
We are lucking for a full time lunch supervisor for John Sweeney School. The hours are 11:35-12:35 each day. If you are interested in applying to be part our team, please contact the school directly.
