Every Child Matters

ORANGE SHIRT DAY.  Friday September 29 

In honor and remembrance of children who were taken from their homes and forced to attend residential schools. We are encouraging all students, staff and volunteers to wear orange to school Friday September 29th because Every Child Matters.


Students and staff of Georgetown Elementary School will participate is the annual Terry Fox Run on Wednesday September 27th. The plan is for the actual run/ walk to start around 2:15 pm outside on the school track. Once the run/ walk is finished, the participants will be able to enjoy the outdoors with a hot dog and drink. 

Students are asked to bring in a $1 donation to help in out fundraising efforts for this worthy cause. Donations and funds raised from Ms. Mair’s book sale totaled $55.50

Thank You!!!!
