Mark Monday, Feb. 9, on your calendar!

Family Day, Skye and Courtney bursary raffle, and family movie – all coming to CSS

Mark Monday, Feb. 9, on your calendar! There will be three family events that you won’t want to miss happening at Clearwater Secondary School that day.

The first event will be the second annual Family Day from 1-4 p.m.

Those who took part last year will remember that the activities encouraged participation by all members of the family. Everyone seemed to have loads of fun participating in activities such as indoor tennis, games, card-making, floor hockey, indoor soccer, cooking, dress up theater, fort-building, story-telling, play dough, snowshoeing and reading. This year each family will go home with a free book.

There will be a swap table for used books, games and puzzles. Please bring items you no longer use and be sure to pick something up as you leave. This will be an entirely free event, thanks to our sponsors: United Way, Wells Gray Community Forests, Clearwater Secondary School and School District 73, RBC, the Times, and District of Clearwater.

The second event has already started but will end with a draw at 2 p.m. during the Family Day event. Clearwater Secondary School PAC is sponsoring a raffle to raise funds for the Skye and Courtney Memorial Bursary, which will provide funds for selected students at Grad each year.

The prizes are: a side of beef donated by Mitchell’s Mountain Beef and cut/wrapped by Rainer’s Meat Cutting, a stainless steel Cuisinart BBQ donated by Brent and Tracy Buck, and $200 donated by Ted McGill.

Raffle tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the Clearwater Secondary School office, as well as at various other locations throughout Clearwater. Only 500 tickets were printed and they are selling quickly. You do not have to be in attendance for the 2 p.m. draw at Family Day to receive your prize.

The final event will begin after the Family Day event has concluded. At 4:15 p.m. in the Pit at CSS the Raft River Elementary PAC will show a pre-release movie called “Big Hero 6”. The cost for this event will be $5 per person, to a maximum of $20 per family. There will be a concession if you wish to purchase popcorn or a drink. All the proceeds of the movie and concession will go to Literacy programs at both Raft River Elementary and Clearwater Secondary schools.


We look forward to seeing you at these events! Please remember to get your raffle tickets early!
