Today we hosted our Terry Fox run.  Students learned about the contributions of Terry Fox and his legacy.  Thank you to all parents who donated funds online for Cancer research.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

On Friday, September 29th, Falgarwood Public School will be honouring the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day is a time to honour the Indigenous families and children who survived the residential school system, and recognize the lives that were lost. Our classes will be learning about Indigenous history and survivance throughout the week. A suggestion would be for your child please to wear an orange shirt to school on September 29th.
