Rafflebox 50/50 Fundraiser for Ellenvale is BACK!!
Go to https://www2.rafflebox.ca/raffle/ellenvalejhs
Hey Ellenvale Community! Don't miss out on the Fun!!!
We are running our second 50/50 fundraiser! We wish to purchase materials and items to create an outdoor classroom, to support our Grade 9 promotion plans, and, hopefully, to purchase more Chrome Books toward our goal of one for every student.
We are also having a class fundraising competition! If you are buying tickets on behalf of a particular student, there is an option for you to choose their homeroom so we can track ticket sales by homeroom and reward that class with a pizza party.
This was a lot of fun for our school community in September and the prize was worth just over $2000.00.
Tickets are for sale until May 17, 2021, midnight.
The draw will take place on May 18, 2021, at the school. The winner will be contacted by email and/or phone.

Yearbook 2021 – Orders can now be made!!

Grade 9 photo retakes are on Thursday, April 15, in the Band Room.

From Mme Boudreau:
Did you know Microaggressions are small comments, phrases or questions that have been embedded into today’s society as “normal”, but are actually offensive and discriminatory towards marginalized groups of people? For the next few days, a 905 Civics group would like to educate you to avoid these questions or phrases so you can be a better bucket filler and not a bucket dipper. Stay tuned!
