Thanksgiving/Christmas/Easter Food Drives
Our entire school community comes together to collect food for those in need in Northumberland through our Food Drives. All of the food is then donated to Northumberland Fare Share. We are so proud of everyone's generosity.
United Way Campaign
For those in need within our school, we support the Northumberland United Way from October 17-21, staff and students participate in themed activities to raise money for United Way.
Since 2000, St. Michael Elementary School has hosted a Terry Fox event every September. We have kept it simple by either walking or running around the periphery of our schoolyard. Relatives, and friends have always been welcome to join this event. It has been great to witness the fun everyone is having, and to see everyone come together for such a worthy cause.
The fundraising efforts have been exceptional each year, and we are happy to say that our school has raised a total of $15, 000, which is donated to further the efforts of cancer research. This event will take place again next September.
We'll see you then!
"The first 20 years of my life, I had been very self-oriented. I had no concern for anyone but my own well-being. It took cancer to realize that being self-centered is not the way to live. The answer is to try to help others."
Terry Fox, 1979
Every week we have hot lunch orders. Please visit https://healthyhunger.ca/ to place your child's order for the upcoming weeks.
