Join the Children’s Choir

Due to the incredible support of many local businesses, the South Shuswap Children’s Choir is now available to all students age 8 to 14 free of charge. The Choir Director is SD83 teacher Kate McKie, former director of the North Okanagan Shuswap Honour Choir.  No auditions are necessary – all are welcome. 
The fee was $229 for the year.  Now, with the support of local businesses, participating children will only need to take out the $10 Arts Council youth membership.  Every student taking lessons through FACES is required to take out a yearly membership for $10 to access the grant funded programs. 
Rehearsals are held at FACES, next door to the school, on Wednesdays 3:00 to 4:30 and start on October 2nd.  If you could get the word out, it would be much appreciated.   A chance like this doesn’t come along often so we would love to see as many kids take advantage of a year of free choir.

Terry Fox Run

Below are the letters Terry Fox sent to Adidas to ask for a donation of 26 pairs of shoes along with other information.  Makes for a great read and discussion starter.
This Thursday, Sept 26th, our school is proud to take part in this year’s Terry Fox Run for cancer research. Terry never gave up – and neither will we. We hope you will support us by donating at:

Please ensure your child wears appropriate outdoor footwear to do the run.
