The next day we had singer, songwriter, Robb Nash visit the school with his inspirational message that life is well worth living! Many students have commented on how much they appreciated the funny and creative way he shared his experiences with them and encouraged them to share their unique talents with the world.
He called up our very own, Caitlin H., who sang a song with him and his band. She did a fantastic job and Robb commented that she was one of the best singers who has ever joined him on stage! We thought so too!
On Friday we met during RTI time to prepare for our upcoming annual Terry Fox run. We learned a bit more about Terry's courage and were inspired to help others by raising money for cancer research. The run is coming up on September 26, 2013 and we are looking for parent volunteers to help out with the race. Please let Ms. Amirault, our learning leader for athletics, know if you are able to help out that morning.
The volleyball and cross country teams have begun to try out and/or practice and the library has been busy before school and at lunch. Our Lunch Buddy program began today with many students volunteering to eat lunch with our students in rooms 23 & 24. Students have already been applying to be part of our LINKages program, where they become friends with a senior from Mckenzie Towne. The completion room even saw about 6 students electing to come to the completion room over lunch to get their homework done! We have amazing students here and they are off to a great start! Keep up the good work MidSun!
