February 2016  

In an effort to help other teenagers, this February the Special Needs students at John Rennie High School held a sock-drive fundraiser for the worthy organization Dans La Rue. With the goal of gathering 1000 pairs of socks, the students advertised with colorful signs, made appeals on the morning announcements, and included daily visits to classrooms to collect and encourage their fellow classmates to donate. As added incentive, and to add a sense of fun, the prize of a pizza lunch was awarded to the class that contributed the most pairs to the drive. As well, friends in the surrounding community supported the cause with cash gifts, and additional pairs of socks.

This project was a success on many levels, as in order to give back to the community the Special Needs students learned many valuable life lessons. They had to work as a team, agree on, organize, and carry out a plan in order to obtain a collective objective. The positive response that they received from the student body helped build their self-confidence, and reinforced their feeling of being accepted as a valuable part of the John Rennie family.

At final tally, the students surpassed their original goal, having collected over 1300 pairs of socks, and $950.00 in monetary gifts for Dans La Rue. The true gift however, was confirming that kindness and inclusion are an integral part of John Rennie.

“Every act of kindness grows the spirit, and strengthens the soul.”

Muscular Dystrophy Walk

This walk took place on Saturday, May 31, 2014. Time was from 10:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m.
The goal was to raise money for services and research to aid people who are affected by neuromuscular disease such as “Duchenne " Muscular Dystrophy which weakens the muscles. As the patient gets older, their strength fades.

My team, the “Duchenne Killers”, came in third for total raised; my team was able to raise $2410.00 in two short weeks! Our team consisted of 12 people. John Rennie was represented by Tammy Holland (Planning Room Tech) Mrs. Edwards (Special Education Technician) Gerald Godfrey (Aide) Dan O’Connor (Aide) as well as Bradley Heaven (Grade 10 student). We had a blast meeting new people and learning more about the disease. Everyone was beaming with pride.
