September 28, 2012 we held our annual Terry Fox Run. The event began with a school assembly; whereby, students listened attentively to Kristine Ray who presented her project on Terry Fox. Students learned of his accomplishments and his desire to make a difference. Ashley Watson held up the project for students to see.
Students and staff at Charlie Lake also made a difference by fund raising for a few weeks. They put coins in their house color bin at the office for a total of $1004.32. Again, Mr. Bourcet was very proud of everyone’s effort in participating in the walk run and fund raising. Each house raised the following amounts.
Black raised $324.45
Blue raised $258.16
Red raised $201.51
White raised $220.20
Way to go LAKERS!!!

A ‘Wall of Good Deeds’ has been started at the school. Here’s how it works: 1)When someone does a good deed for you, tell your leadership representative. 2) Together you will fill out an award for that person and put it up on the ‘Wall’. 3) Then you do a good deed for someone else. 4) Awards for good deeds will be given out at the end of November.
