We have currently raised over $1,000 for our month long fundraiser, Project 5G for C.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 by the end of April for the Canadian Cancer Society. 

On Friday this week there will be a bake sale in the Gallery. Each week there will be a draw and each donation of four dollars or more qualifies for an entry. There are many cool prizes including Royals Gear, gift cards and even an iPod. 

Sepehr, our student body president, has pledged that if we can get to $5,000 he will shave his head completely in the middle of the Gallery on April 30. So come to the Gallery and show your support!
