Jump Rope for Heart
2016-2017


Information regarding this year's Jump Rope for Heart will be sent home later this week. Did you know that to date, the dedicated families of École Bannatyne have raised approximately $68,800? Last year alone, we raised almost $10,000.00! That is truly amazing!

Please note:In order to participate, interested students must return their signed parent consent forms to Mme Beaudin by Wednesday, April 12th, 2017. All online donations must be completed and all collection envelopes must be returned to the school no later than Wednesday, April 26th, 2017. This is a firm deadline as the money will be collected by the Heart & Stroke and they will be ordering the thank-you prizes as soon as possible. Failure to meet this deadline may result in your child not receiving his/her thank-you prize before the end of the school year. 

Thank you kindly in advance for your cooperation and donations!

Terry Fox Run 2016

On Tuesday, September 13th, 2016, we were honoured to have Fred Fox, Terry Fox’s older brother, come visit our school. He shared some wonderful family memories and photos of the Fox family, their connection to Winnipeg and the Marathon of Hope. His presentation was a great reminder as to why it is so important to continue supporting the Terry Fox Run and cancer research.

On Friday, September 30th, the students will once again be running/walking in honor of Terry Fox. They will be running/walking outside before their morning recess. Please note that a donation is not necessary, but on that day, the school will only be collecting loonie ($1) and toonie ($2) donations. If you wish to donate more money to the Terry Fox Foundation, you may do so online or by cheque made payable to The Terry Fox Foundation. If donating by cheque, please print and complete the mini-pledge sheet found below and send it to the school with payment to ensure that you receive a tax receipt. To make an online pledge, go to terryfox.org and click on the National School Run Day tab and continue to follow the provided instructions.

Thank you in advance for your donations, they are greatly appreciated! Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the school at 888-1101 or email me at nbeaudin@sjsd.net. Thank you for your cooperation!
