Acwsalcta students celebrate fundraising achievement

Acwsalcta students and staff celebrated a fundraising achievement, after $500 was raised to support the Terry Fox Run, and cancer research! Staff and students competed in their House Teams to see who could raise the most money. The deadline was lunch hour on Halloween, with rewarded activities happening in they gym.

If the school collectively raised $200, teachers Vanessa Hans and Curtis Kennedy would get a pie thrown in their faces; $250 Brittany Gulka and Matt Gulka would throw a pie in each others’ face; $325 Lindsay Gericke would be duct taped to the wall; $500 Geoff Gericke would have a mohawk shaved into his hair!

It was a fun celebration and a proud achievement for Acwsalcta to raise money and awareness towards cancer research. Congratulations to the school, and thank you to the brave staff who helped make this fundraising event a success!
