We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, which is the traditional ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
From Mr. Lewis:
Dec. 9, after 5pm, treat yourself at Finbars--15% of all sales will support Ellenvale Projects including the Student Life and Spirit Activities, Learning Commons, Art Gallery, and Positive and Welcoming Messaging Initiative around the school.
You can DINE IN or TAKE OUT! Just remember to let the Finbar's staff know that you are dining in support of Ellenvale Junior High School! Please invite friends, families and neighbours!
We will have a special guest speaker, Joe MacEachern, the Indigenous Health Program Manager, Faculty of Medicine, Global Health at Dal on Thursday, Dec. 5 at lunch. Mr. MacEachern will meet with our students of aboriginal ancestry over the lunch hour that day. Please confirm with Ms. Cottingham if you can attend.
Each year the Ellenvale Elves help out families from our community at Christmastime. Usually we are able to help a few families with gift certificates to Walmart and grocery stores. This small gesture goes a long way this time of year. This year we would love to have your help! There will be a donation box located in the office where we will collect spare change. If you can, please send your child in with a small monetary donation to help our cause. Thank you so much for your support and in helping out our Ellenvale community.
