Relay 4 Life
relay_for_lifeUnfortunately, due to lack of interest on the part of participants, Relay for Life at AY has been cancelled for this year.  We regret that we had to make this decision, but a Relay event with fewer than 50 students would not be effective.
A.Y. Jackson students will be welcome to attend Relay for Life at Earl of March on May 6th from 10 am to 10 pm.   Any interested students must contact Mrs. Collins in guidance before Friday April 8th - by email or in person.
Students who do not wish to participate at Earl of March can receive a refund of their registration fee from Mrs. Collins at lunch.
