Stick it to Cancer Fundraiser 2016

Hello Parents and Students –

Once again, we will be doing a Stick It To Cancer Fundraiser in support of the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta.  There are many ways for students to get involved.  Firstly, students can sign up a floor hockey team, made up of five students, that will play a tournament in the gym at lunch.  The cost of the entry fee is a minimum of $10 ($2 per player.)  The winning team will be playing in a final game at our pep rally on February 29th.

Secondly, we are putting it out to students to Shave a Lid for a Kid.  If there are students who would like to shave their heads or cut their long hair, they can raise money and awareness for our cause by picking up pledge forms from Miss Cross and rallying for donations. Those students who have signed up can create their own pledge page on our school Shave-A-Thon website.  All they have to is log into the website( below:
