PECI Glee Club Wins!

glee_club_milford The PECI Glee Club won Best School Entry in the Milford Fall Fair Parade on Saturday, September 17th.  This vocal ensemble led parade watchers in song along the parade route.  Participating students were Natalie Lockyer, Holly Aman, Fanny Robbe, Sarah Crouse, and Iain Stenhouse along with teachers Ms. Pigott, and Mr. and Mrs. Lockyer.  The Glee Club sings pop and classic rock songs after school every Thursday.  New members are welcome.

Terry Fox Run

PECI’s Terry Fox Run is Friday, October 7, after Lunch. PECI staff and students will be running from the backfield along the Millennium Trail and to the Golf Course and back again. Our Goal is to raise $10,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation which is about $13.33 per student. Students can donate in their home room, outside Room 109, or with pledge forms. We are doing this because of the large symbol of hope in the battle against cancer Terry has shown. Terry had a malignant tumor in his right leg and had it amputated above the knee. He decided to do a cross-country marathon to raise money on cancer research and awareness. He ran 42 kilometers a day through six provinces for 143 days and 5373 until his cancer had spread to his lungs and he was taken to BC for treatment. Terry died one month short of his 23rd birthday. Terry’s dream now lives on in all of our lives.

University and College Visits

In an effort to assist our students in making informed decisions with regard to their post-secondary plans, the Guidance department would like to invite interested grade 11 and 12 students to our college and university visits this fall. The schedule of visits can be found here. We would ask students to sign up for only 4 or 5 of these sessions, and they must come to Guidance to sign up for the sessions of their choice.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the student services department if you have any questions.
