On November 22nd one of the Ottawa Community United Way Campaign Co-Chairs, Goldy Hyder, returned to our school to be part of our United Way ‘touchdown’ assembly. He was amazed at how engaged the Turnbull School community was in raising funds and awareness for the United Way. He was equally impressed with our school wide dance, choreographed for our dance-a-thon by Mme Jody Rantala, to the song Call Me Maybe – Turnbull Style, written by Mr. Chris Pierce, and performed by three grade 8 singers. Thank you to Mr. Steve Fini, along with all of the staff on this year’s United Way committee, for helping to create such a successful campaign with so much involvement from students, parents and teachers. As of last week, $40 693.13 was raised, bringing our 18 year contribution total to $315 446.13.
