Ripley-Huron Community School hosted a Terry Fox Run, Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Students learned about the many challenges Terry faced in 1980 when he ran the equivalent of a marathon a day for 143 days straight. They also learned about the value of effort, and how many people can work together to accomplish great things. 

Thank you to the community for supporting
Terry's Marathon of Hope to bring an end to cancer. The school raised $733.75 to help fight cancer.

Also on Sept. 24, the school hosted the Meet the Teacher barbecue.

 Grade 8 students also hosted a Fun Fair to help raise money to support the school's 'With My Own Two Hands" initiative which will be used to help people in the community.  

Kyle Smeltzer won the draw to throw a pie in principal Graham Martin's face.

Oct. 9, students competed in the regional cross-country meet at Ainsdale Golf Course.  

The students demonstrated excellent effort, school spirit and sportsmanship!  Way to go, Ripley Ravens!  Thank you to coaches Ann Ellis, Dave Quinn and Barb Grubb.
