On Thursday, January 16, 2014, the Waterloo Region District School Board is hosting An Evening With Dr. Ross Greene for parents, guardians, and the community. Dr. Ross Greene is a dynamic speaker and passionate advocate of Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS). He is Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard University, and the author of The Explosive Child and Lost at School. CPS (formally known as Collaborative Problem Solving) is an approach that helps parents, guardians and caregivers work responsively to resolve the challenging behaviours of children of all ages. Dr. Greene will describe clear and practical strategies caregivers and children can use to resolve disagreements and disputes in a collaborative, mutually satisfactory way.
Registration for the event is through Eventbite at

During this year’s Terry Fox fundraising effort, Blair Road raised $2 700, which is $350 more than we have ever raised! Those funds will certainly be put to good use by the Terry Fox Foundation. All classes contributed to our fundraising effort, but Mrs. Mackenzie-Miller’s class made the largest donation. The Kindies donated a whopping $514.73. Once again, the Blair Road community showed what we are capable of. Thank-you for all of your donations.

Blair Road is hosting its 10th annual Terry Fox Run on Friday, September 27th. Our run will begin just after second nutrition break. This year, students will run a 1/2 km course which will be set up on our school yard, and as a school, we will try to run as many kilometres as possible. All monies raised through our event will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation to further the cause of cancer research.
Students are encouraged to bring a monetary donation to school during the week of September 23rd. Remember that Terry’s original goal was to raise $1 for every Canadian, so no donation is too small. Cheques can be made out to The Terry Fox Run. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more, so please attach your name and address to your donation if you wish to receive a tax receipt. Donations can also be made online at www.terryfoxrun.org (Click on National School Run Day and then Donate to a Student/School. Then type in Blair Road in the school search area, and make your donation).
We are very proud to be associated with The Terry Fox Foundation and believe that our involvement will help launch a successful and positive school year. Let’s keep Terry’s dream to find a cure for cancer alive and raise even more than the $2 350 we raised last year. To help the fundraising effort, each class will determine a fundraising goal and an incentive for reaching the goal. Last year, Mrs. Pilkington’s class got to do her hair and makeup for the day! Parents are welcome to join us during The Terry Fox Walk.
Thanks for your continued support.

The Me to We Team has finished counting, bagging, and rolling the $600 in change and bills that was donated by our school community during our penny drive, and the money is now on its way to people who really need it. It’s truly amazing that $600 can provide 24 people in a developing country with the clean drinking water that they deserve for the rest of their lives!
Once again, Blair Road has demonstrated just how much we care about others. The Me to We Team thanks everyone for their wonderful kindness.
