I will blog their estimated time of arrival back to Toronto on Friday afternoon.

Jump Rope For Heart

We would like to say a big thank you to the school community for your involvement with 'Jump Rope for Heart'!

Fern Avenue has raised a total of $5,819.55! This far exceeds our goal of $5,000.00 for this year! Every dollar brings us closer to winning the fight against heart disease and stroke, and we truly appreciate your support.

Also of great importance is that our students actively participated in a school wide fun day of jump rope, became more aware of the importance of exercise for a healthy heart, and helped others in need.

We had a full period assembly with the students last week going over the trip and answering any questions. Students are encouraged to pack their lunch for the first day, and to dress appropriately for the weather. They will need to bring some money for the second and third day lunch. 

We will post our Estimated Time of Arrival ( ETA) on Friday around 3:00 p.m.
