September 2019

Dear Families,

On Thursday September 26, 2019 students in Kindergarten to Grade Eight will be taking part in the Terry Fox National School Walk Day (rain date Fri. Sept. 27).

St. Margaret School is proud to play an important role in keeping the legacy of Terry Fox going.  Students will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the heroic efforts of Terry as well as donate much-needed funds for cancer research.  Through our participation in the Terry Fox School Walk, we hope to encourage leadership in our students and create positive agents of change in our wonderful school community.

Our school Terry Fox challenge is for all students to bring in one ‘Toonie for Terry” to assist us in reaching our school goal of $700.00. Toonies can be brought in up to and including our run date of September 27th. If families prefer to make a larger donation, donations can be made directly on line. Simply go to:

The site is secure and receipts are sent to your email address. All monies raised will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation and 82 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research!

Our walk will kick off with a pep-rally in the gym shortly following morning announcements (approximately 9:00 am). Family members are welcome to join us. Please let your child’s teacher know ahead of time if you plan on coming.

On our walk day all students are encouraged to wear red and white to show support for our Canadian hero.

We hope you will join us as our school community bands together in the fight against cancer. Thank you in advance for your support!
