Bliss Carman Middle School is launching a T-shirt campaign on Wednesday, Sept. 12, to assist local charities with fundraising for the victims of the tragic incident in Fredericton last month.
Athletic Director Mark Paquette said the school will be selling a limited number of T-shirts during the campaign. The shirts will be sold for $10 each from the physical education office during noon hours. All funds raised will be passed onto local charities. The cost of the T-shirts is being supported in part by Colpitts Development, a private sector partner for the project.
On Friday, Oct. 5, Bliss Carmen will also be hosting special activities for School Spirit Day. Beginning at 1 p.m., students will join designated teams to take part in a variety outdoor games until 2:30 p.m., weather permitting. Paquette said these activities will serve to build comradery and cooperation among students.
"I would like to extend an invitation to any of our parents who are first responders to come out and join us and play along or simply be out with our students and staff," Paquette said. "We are also asking any off-duty Fredericton police officers to join us as well. It's our way to show these heroes that we appreciate them and extend our school spirit and to show community spirit."
