Terry Fox is a Canadian  hero. He wanted to run all the way around the world to raise money for cancer. Terry Fox wanted to raise this money not only for all the children and people with cancer but for himself because he had bone cancer. Terry Fox did not let this cancer stop him. He went through 16 painful and  draining  months of chemo. He fought and persisted all the way.Terry raced through Canadian towns and cities while people cheered him on. Everyone loved him. Terry had to end his run as the pain and cancer spread in Thunder Bay he could not continue.
Every year communities across Canada raise money and run for Terry and other people who have or are battling cancer. BES is challenging every student to bring a toonie for Terry to help support cancer research. Our school will have our assembly to remember Terry on Wednesday, September 28th at 1:00 pm. We will be joining BCHS and running on Thursday,  September, 29 at 10 am. Lets make a difference BES!��…

September Highlights By: Marshall
The weeks went by quickly and so far it has been a blast! Last Friday we had a pajama day because the last few weeks we have proven that we are focused, persistent, and have practiced active listening. Our class has also been working really hard. The celebration was a really fun time (even though we were wearing pajamas). We had a full afternoon of art and music. We even had cupcakes that Miss Major made.  Even though she says she can't bake, they were yum, yum, yum and they were the best!


A Wonderful Week!

It has been a busy week of team building, new learning challenges and self regulation activities! Every student has demonstrated curiosity and kindness everyday. I am feeling very lucky to have such a wonderful grade 6 class! Let the adventure begin.
