Pineland - Terry Fox Walk

“Even if I can’t continue, it’s got to keep going without me.” 


Terry Fox: Our current total of funds raised for this season for the Terry Fox Foundation is $5869.00. The Pineland Public School Donation Page will remain live until Friday October 11. We hope to exceed the $6000.00 mark!  Thank you to all families for supporting this very worthy cause.   

 

Our rich tradition continues at Pineland as we once again prepare to participate in the Terry Fox Run.  Cancer is a disease that sadly touches the lives of so many. We participate in the run this year with our hearts full of best wishes for those in our Pineland community for whom the fight against cancer is all too real.  Last year, through the generous support of our Pineland community, our students raised close to $9,000.00. To date, Pineland has raised an impressive over $196, 000!

 

It is through research dollars that medical advances are being made; progressive treatments and cures found. It is encouraging to note that 82 cents from every dollar raised goes directly to fund the very best, most progressive research projects.  We thank you in advance for your support in making Pineland’s Terry Fox Run a positive and successful event. To see our students and staff walk and run with determination, enthusiasm, and perseverance is remarkable. It is a source of great Pineland pride!

 

The Pineland Terry Fox Run will take place at the school on Thursday, September 26th (rain date, Thursday, October 3rd) during the school day.  All donations will be done online this year via our school donation page or on your child’s student donation page. Although fundraising for cancer research is encouraged, it is not mandatory.  All students will, however, be participating in the day’s events. 


Online pledging is simple.  Please visit http://www.terryfox.ca/PinelandPSBurington to join our school team in the fight against cancer. It is important to note that we are a cashless school. If you are unable to donate online, cheques made payable to the Terry Fox Foundation will only be accepted. The LAST day to donate online Pineland's page is OCTOBER 11, 2019. Thank you to all families and community members for your generous donations.


As with any event of this nature, we will need the help of our volunteers.  If you are able to help on the day of the event to count money, tally laps, encourage and supervise our participants in the afternoon, please indicate on the form that has been sent home with your child on Fri. Sept. 20th and return to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.  The majority of the help needed will be to gather classroom tallies and cheer on our dedicated students. Please note that completed Police Checks and Vulnerable Sector Screening will be necessary to volunteer for this event.  We thank you in advance for your support in making Pineland’s Terry Fox Run a positive and successful event.


Sincere thanks for your support!

Student pick ups/drop offs

posted Mar 22, 2018, 12:24 PM by Michael Courtemanche   [ updated Mar 22, 2018, 12:24 PM ]

Important information re: student pick ups/drop offs:  We understand that unexpected and/or emergency circumstances arise where your child needs to be picked up during the school hours. For all other circumstances, we ask that you please send your child(ren) with a note or contact the teacher ahead of time to request the dismissal.  We are noticing a number of interruptions during instructional time to call a student out of class. This is very disruptive to the learning and we are trying to minimize this. Our office is very busy and we appreciate your help in limiting calls/requests for pick ups. Also, when dropping your child off, please say your good-bye at the office.  If necessary, a staff member will walk your child to class. We are trying to limit the number of interruptions in the school day. Thank you!
