North Dundas showed great initiative this week, with our annual Terry Fox walk, which took place on Thurs., Sept. 27, and our food drive which began on Thursday as well. The food drive will last until Wed., Oct. 10. Students are encouraged to look at the posters located in the hallways to bring in the specific foods for your grade. Each time a grade specific item is brought in, that item doubles your points. The class with the most points at the end of the food drive will earn a special prize. Our Terry Fox walk for cancer research, brought in $2,600, which is phenomenal for our small school. A huge thanks to Mrs. Williams and the Link Crew class who organized the whole afternoon, along with our top fundraisers; Connor Van Koppen, Cynthia Tupper, Curtis Bell, and myself, Ashley Wheeler. We would also like to thank everyone else who participated, you are making a difference.

On Wed., Sept. 26, the Junior and Senior boys’ volleyball teams played at La Citadelle in Cornwall. Sadly, the Seniors’ lost both games, and the Juniors’ won their first game, but weren’t so lucky in the second game. Today, the Junior and Senior girls’ basketball teams are travelling to La Citadelle, we wish them the best of luck. Last Fri., Sept 28, intermediate and high school cross country teams travelled to Russell for their first meet of the season. Many runners brought home place ribbons. Tomorrow, Thurs., Oct 4, the high school cross country team is travelling to St. Michael Catholic School in Kemptville. We wish all runners the best of luck.

October will be a busy month for North Dundas, with many sports games, cross country meets, and good initiatives happening around the school. Keep up the good work ND!
