It was a great day for our Terry Fox Collections. Our school total is all the way up to $1408 in just a week. Hopefully, Mr. Brooks was wrong when he said that our school would not be able to achieve our goal of $3500 to get him a proper haircut like Mr. Edwards or Mr. Sammons. Well, we are starting to making him a little nervous now. The primary division is still way out in front with $570.95 in donations, Junior with $328, Kindergarten with $183.80, and the intermediates with $125.25. So keep collecting and bringing in those donations Birchview because there are only 2 weeks left to meet our goal. </span></li></ul><ul><li><span style="font-family:"tahoma",sans-serif;color:black;">Freezies will be for sale during second break today.  Students can buy freezies during their recess break and eat them outside.  There is a limit of 2 freezies each.  Thank you for supporting our Terry Fox Fundraising. </span></li></ul><ul><li><span style="font-family:"tahoma",sans-serif;color:black;">Howdee Partners!

That is a great start to achieve our goal of $3500 and to get a new look for Mr. Brooks. So far our Primary division is leading the way with $247.60 raised, next the juniors with $77.00, kindergarten with $35, and the intermediates, who need to really start bringing in their donations, with only $18. So please continue to bring your Terry Fox money in before October 5th. A special mention for Emery in grade 4 who donated $50 and Cora-Lynn in grade 3 who has already raised $125 on her own. Great work guys!</span></li></ul>
