Everyday They’re Shuffling
In secondary school, a culminating wrap-up assignment can look like something that is done with a pen and paper or it can be a little more active and impacting.
That’s why the St. Charles College grade 9 girls’ physical education class run by teachers Chantal Dagostino and Sean Gilroy is training to participate in the Salvation Army’s Santa Shuffle Fun Run and Elf Walk.
Almost forty of the students have been training hard for what they are calling the “First Annual SCC Back to Basics Run/Walk/Santa Shuffle”.
The class has also teamed up with teacher Beverly Belanger’s Leadership class. The students are promoting active living as well as supporting the Salvation Army women and Families of Sudbury to make Christmas a possibility for everyone.
Dagostino says “the aim is to start a yearly trend as well as have 100 participants including staff members and students take part this year alone. This way their culminating activity in this class is far-reaching.”
