Tragic Fire in our Community!

Over the March Break a very big house fire struck our community.  Lamees Ali in Ms. Knelsen’s class & Elizabeth Skitch in Ms. Clarke’s class have lost their homes and all of their belongings.  There are two ways you can help.  The first way you can help is to buy popcorn from School Council at 2nd recess on Thursdays.  Popcorn will now cost $2.00 per bag and the 1st dollar from each sale will go to Elizabeth and Lamees.  The second way you can help is to bring in a cash donation.  Century will run 3 fundraising drives.  For the 1st week of each of the remaining 3 months: April, May and June, Century will raise funds.  The class that raises the most funds, each week will win a slice of pizza and a special dessert.  So start saving up your Loonies and Twoonies.  It will be nice to win a treat and it will be wonderful to help our two Cyclones and their families rebuild.  At Century, we take care of each other.
