Make sure to bring in non-perishable food items for the Halloween food drive that will be taking place every day this week, all items that are brought in will be donated to Pelham Cares. You can drop your food items off at the front foyer upon entering the school. And not only are you helping out people in need, but your grade will get a colour wars point for every item you bring in as well!

This Wednesday October 27th, the business leadership class will be holding EL Crossley's Terry Fox run. We would like to extend an invitation to all classes to join us in our walk during period 3. We will be visiting your classes today to explain our “Toonies for Terry” fundraiser and how the day will work. We strongly encourage everyone to dress for fall weather as the event will be taking place outside on the front field. We hope that this event can remind all students of Terry’s influence on Canadian culture and we believe that as a school we can come together to carry on his memory as well as reach our fundraising goal for cancer research.

CLUBS

Attention Musicians- band will rehearse today, right after school,  until 4pm. We will meet rain or shine because we are now allowed to rehearse indoors! Also, be sure to attend, as Mrs Barber has some exciting performance opportunities to share with you. Remember to bring your instruments and bell covers
