PARKLAND DAILY NEWS:
Thursday November 5, 2020 DAY 2
The Parkland Track 2021 campaign has been officially launched. You will notice posters in the school and around the community advertizing this campaign. We hope to raise enough money by June of next year to replace the track over the summer. Please spread the word about this exciting new project and check out the website at www.parklandtrack2021.com . There is a DONATE NOW button on the website for those interested in donating.
If you have lost a cell phone, please see the office to identify.
Although we will not be hosting our traditional, annual Terry Fox Run this year at Parkland, students are still encouraged to get out and complete the run on their own and/or donate to our school’s fundraising page. Stay tuned for some other exciting ways to run as part of the Parkland School community this fall. Our school’s fundraising page: http://www.terryfox.ca/ParklandSecondary
