School to Hold 2nd Annual Walk-a-Thon

Last year's walk-a-thon raised over $8000
 Blackville School is hosting its second annual walk-a-thon on Thursday, October 5.  

Both teachers and students are asked to find sponsors to donate money that will go towards a fence for the elementary soccer field.  

If the school can come up with $9000, the rest of classes that day will be replaced with activities.

The walk will begin at 9:30 am and everyone is welcome to join.  There will be water along the way, along with food when the students return to the school.

Last year the school community raised over $8000 and the goal is to raise an even higher amount this year.

Students Participate in Walk; Raise Money for Cancer Research

Students were eager to lace up their shoes, get outside, and of course miss some class time, for a great cause.

That cause was the Terry Fox Run on Friday, September 15.

Elementary and middle school students, along with parents and teachers, participated in the walk.

Each student that participated was asked to bring in one dollar. The students raised $200 for cancer research.  While elementary students walked one kilometre, middle school students walked three kilometres.

"Terry Fox raised money for cancer research, and he wanted people to be like him and do the same thing,"  said grade 4 student Kyler Sturgeon. Grade 4 student Ayden Munn agreed, saying, "Terry Fox wanted people to raise money and awareness for cancer research."

Kindergarten students Kamryn Curtis and Kenzie McNeil added that they had fun and were happy they did it and hope the students do it again.

The Blackville community also held a Terry Fox Walk. The walks continue to be well received from both community and school members.
