Fundraising Carbon students douse principal
The top two fundraisers for Carbon School’s Terry Fox Run this year, Mitchell Nienaber and Holly Petersen, earned the right to dump buckets of cold water on associate principal Marci Steen on October 25. After 24 years of fundraising, the school passed $50,000 raised in support of cancer research.

So, the club decided to install these trees for the future comfort and enjoyment of mom, dad and the kids.
It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The club is assisting 16 local Sea Cadets to participate in the 75th anniversary of D-Day celebrations. Imagine having the opportunity to trace the steps of our brave soldiers on June 6, 2019. For the real young tykes, the club is providing financial assistance for Indoor Family Play this winter.
