Yesterday the staff and boys volleyball team played and it was extremely fun for all! Even though the staff were rusty, they still managed to defeat the hard playing boys. There were many students that wanted to watch this match so to raise some money for the Grade 8 trip, we are going to have rematch that students can watch next Wednesday, Dec. 11th at 2nd nutritional break (1:00). The grade 7 and 8 students must pay ahead $1.00 as an admittance fee. There will only be 60 seats so make sure you bring your loonie in and there will be tickets selling starting Monday at 9:00. Ms. Winstone will collect the loonies at that time from each of the intermediate classes and write down the names of the students that wish to attend. We are also asking the staff members to wear red and the students wear green to show our festive spirit. Join us for the best match of the season!

The boy’s volleyball team had a fantastic day at the Area tournament yesterday. They started strong winning a game against Connaught. Then by the end of the day they ramped it up and played two amazing games against the top team, St. Mary’s taking a game from them. The team displayed excellent sportsmanship throughout the day. Mrs. Baumgarten, Mr. Edwards and Mrs. Degagne want to thank the team for an excellent season. We are very proud of how much you have improved. The boys would like to challenge the teachers and their captain Mrs. Winstone to a game next week. The time will be announced. Game on Mrs. Winstone!!!

Yesterday the Intermediate Girls’ Basketball team competed in the Simcoe West Area Tournament held at CCI. The girls’ first game was against Connaught. They played a fantastic offensive and defensive game but in the end came up three baskets short of a victory. In the final game against Admiral Collingwood the strongest team in the division the girls’ played an amazing defensive game and were able to hold off some of the top shooters in the West. Mr. Osborn and Ms. Ewaskiw are very proud of the skill and sportsmanship that the girls’ displayed while representing our team. We look forward to working with the grade 7 girls again next year and encourage the grade 8 girls to try out for the high school team next year.

Today is Waste Free Wednesday. Thank you for helping the environment. Green Team go to Mr. Pinkerton’s room at 10:35.
As some of you may or may not know, next summer Mr. Carson is inline skating over 2200 km across the province of Ontario in an event called Roll Across Ontario. His net goal is to raise $20,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.
A fundraising evening is happening tomorrow night, Thursday the 28th, from 4-9 p.m. at Pita Pit on Mosley Street in Wasaga Beach. Through the evening, Pita Pit will donate 20% of all sales of food and beverage to Mr. Carson’s cancer fundraiser. So, come on out tomorrow night, bring your families, and enjoy a great dinner while helping to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Mr. Carson looks forward to seeing staff, students and families there, and he thanks you for your support.
Attention Character Demonstration Team! Please meet Mrs. Sutherland in Room 108 at Second Recess today for a short meeting. See you soon!
Mr. Carson is continuing the legacy of his Canadian hero Terry Fox. He intends to in-line skate across Ontario in hopes of raising $20,000 for cancer research. Funds raised from his Roll Across Ontario campaign will go to Canadian Cancer Society, which funds research, provides services in communities, and promotes early-detection cancer screening programs that help save lives every day.
We wanted you to know of a sponsor promotion that is happening with a local sponsor for his skate. On the last Thursday of every month from now until June (excluding December), and alternating each month between his Wasaga Beach and Collingwood locations, Malcolm McSorley from Pita Pit is donating 20% of the sales between 4-9 p.m. toward Roll Across Ontario. The first promotional evening is next Thursday, November 28th, from 4-9 p.m. at the Wasaga Beach location. So, if you are in the area, and are looking to pick up some dinner, or have a bite to eat before you head out to the Ladies Night event that night, visit Mr. Carson and the staff at Pita Pit on Mosley Street to help support my skate and the Canadian Cancer Society.
More events will be planned throughout the year including a great event here at Birchview in the spring.
