What a beautiful day to participate in the Terry Fox run. It was great to see so many sweaty faces afterwards.
In the afternoon students were given a logic puzzle. For many, the task required perseverance and grit to accomplish. I loved watching the reactions from some of the students once they were successful. Some I needed to encourage to not give up and to at least give it a go. As this is a focus for the year, this activity was a great baseline for me to observe those that already have perseverance and those that need to develop it. Parents, I have included a photo of the puzzle below for those of you who wish to give it a go.

Comment: 1) What was your mindset for the run? 2) Did you have a personal goal for the run? Did you accomplish it? 3) What do you think about Terry Fox running 42 km per day for months?
