Toonies for Terry Spaghetti Eating Challengehttp://for.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/26Toonies for Terry Spaghetti Eating Challenge<p>​This week, Forest Hill celebrated the National School Run Day on Thursday, September 29. Before the day of the big event, Mme Adair coaxed several teachers into participating in the 2nd Spaghetti Eating Challenge. Students who brought in a toonie for Terry, got their name on a ticket. They place their ticket into the jar of the teacher they thought would win the challenge. Students were also drawn to serve a teacher the spaghetti. </p><p>There were some excellent spaghetti eating costumes, and we even had the Queen of Spaghetti (Mme McBride) join us for the festivities with cape, crown and entourage.  After the sauce hit the faces, Mrs. Stewart emerged victorious. She, along with 2 students lead the Kindies around the track for the first lap. </p><p>A fun time was had by all!</p>
