To date, more than $600 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry’s name through the annual Terry Fox Run. Terry taught us that the youth has a purpose, and that it is our turn to continue his legacy until a cure for cancer is found. That is why Marlborough takes part in the Terry Fox run every year.
Students from Ms. Hara and Ms. Chan’s classes will be visiting classes from Tuesday, September 26th to Thursday 28th to collect a TOONIE for TERRY! Our goal is to raise $2000! Let’s go Huskies!
Terry Fox assembly: Thursday, September 28th @ 9:10 AM
Terry Fox run: Begins at 10:00 AM (classes will run throughout the day at different times)

Hello Marlborough families,
It has been wonderful welcoming your children back this week! They have been reconnecting with old friends and meeting new friends and teachers. We have been working hard to create classes so that each student has the best learning environment possible. As you can imagine, this takes time.
The French classes have been approved by the District so your child will be bringing home a note today with their new teacher and classroom number to come on Monday.
We are almost ready to have the English classes approved. On Monday, for all English students, we ask that they go back to the homeroom class they were in this week. We are hoping to move them into their permanent classes in the afternoon. They will be picked up at their original homeroom class, where they were dropped off in the morning.
Thank you for your support and understanding. We’re looking forward to a great year ahead!
Mme Floyd & Mrs. Rawnsley
We are excited to begin another year of rich learning at Ecole Marlborough Elementary! School begins on Tuesday, September 5th at 8:55am. All students (except Kindergarten) will attend for one hour on Tuesday and then return beginning Wednesday, September 6th for full days (8:55am-2:47pm).
Where to go on Tuesday:
-If your child is returning to Marlborough, they will go back to their last year’s classroom. Note: if your child is going into Grade 6 Late Immersion, they will go to Room 102 (West building). All Grade 7 Early Immersion will go to room 105 (West building).
-If your child is new to Marlborough, please bring them to the West Gym.
-Kindergarten students do not attend on Tuesday. Please go to the East Gym to sign up for an interview.
Please be advised that parking is limited so it is preferable to walk to school. If you are dropping your children off by car, please use the lots off Dover Street or Arrow Street (off Royal Oak). The lot off Nelson Avenue is reserved for staff only.
