Dear Mackie Community,
On behalf of the Mackie Staff, I would like to extend our immense gratitude for the generosity extended during our Terry Fox-Research for Cancer Fundraising Campaign. Our students participated enthusiastically and empathetically in this serious battle and we were all able to have a bit of community fun in celebrating our success. Students from Ms. McFarlane’s class won the opportunity to throw pie #1 for being the first to fill the classroom jar with money, and students in Ms. Song’s class won the honour of throwing pie #2 for the highest earnings. The whole school had fun with the endeavour. Special acknowledgment goes out to Mr. Moutadayne for being such a great sport and Ms. McFarlane and Ms. Duncan for the organization. It was a fantastic team-building opportunity and we are all “richer” for it! Funds have been collected for deposit and transfer to the Terry Fox Foundation in the amount of $1, 673.57 Outstanding response!
Thank you so much for your very generous support.
