December 16, 2011 - During the month of November, Core French teacher, Mr. Belanger, at St. Charles Catholic Elementary Catholic School challenged all male staff to grow a mustache for the month of "Movember" in order to support the prostate cancer awareness campaign. The students were asked to bring in loose change during the month of Movember to raise money for the Northern Cancer Research Foundation and that is exactly what they did - students raised a total of $759.51. " It was really great to see almost every student in our school wear a mustache on our Mustache Day. This was an opportunity for not only school spirit but it showed the importance of community involvement. Students appreciate that they are part of a global effort in the fight againstt cancer".
