Mrs Dagenais and Mrs Piché Swain's STEP and STARS Weekday Warriors would like to thank everyone who participated in the Warrior Challenge yesterday. The event was well attended with over 800 students from all Kapuskasing elementary schools. 

The aim of this challenge was to build community, promote positive mental health, promote equity, and team building. Our message for yesterday was to ensure each of the participants realize they are WARRIORS and to continue pursuing through anything they go through in life. 

To our KDHS staff and student leaders who took time in their day to be part of our event we appreciate you!  

To our sponsors, the event would not have been possible without you and we are incredibly grateful for your generosity and support for such a successful community event.
