Week One/B

We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, which is the unceded traditional ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.

Parents:

On-line learning at Ellenvale begins tomorrow, Wednesday, April 28. The schedule was sent out via swift message yesterday and can be viewed on this website as well.

If you are coming to the school to pick up chrome books, instruments or student’s personal items, please come to the school between 9am and 3pm. Please call 435-8420 from your car once you are at the school and you will be met at the door with the items you have pre-arranged to pick up.

Band Parents:
You should have already received an email from Mr. Fraser telling you that Band Instruments are located at the back of the school building, outside, the exit nearest the band room and can be picked up there between 9 and 3 today. If you can’t come today, please call the school office (435-8420) or email Mr. Fraser to make an appointment to pick up an instrument.

Don’t forget to buy your tickets for our Rafflebox 50/50 Fundraiser!! Last checked, the total raised so far is perilously close to $2000! Holy Smokes--Mme. Leslie’s class has lunged into the lead having raised $330, Mr. Vautour’s class sank into second place with $200, and Ms. McCarron’s class has raised a very respectable $190.  We need a little more enthusiasm from the following classes: 905, 901, 804, 801 and 701 because they have only raised $20 each! It’s not too late folks. Lots of time to pull into the lead!! Pizza party is up for grabs for the 1st place homeroom! And, we will have prizes for the 2nd and 3rd place classes also.

It is easy to buy tickets! Go to https://www2.rafflebox.ca/raffle/ellenvalejhs
This fundraiser is to support our outdoor classrooms, our Grade 9 promotion plans, and, hopefully, to purchase more Chrome Books toward our goal of one for every student. 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.

Don’t Miss Out – Order your Yearbook NOW!!
Please contact jcottingham@hrce.ca if you would like to purchase a yearbook while we are learning on-line.
Speaking of the yearbook, Grade 9 students can submit baby photos for a fun guessing page. Anyone interested can email them to chapmagx@hotmail.com.


From 905 Civics Group:
Today’s tip to avoid being a bucket dipper is to not say “Let’s have a pow-wow”. Pow-wows are significant celebrations in many indigenous communities that allow people in the group to feel a sense of community and to honour their heritage in a society that often marginalizes them. Using this term as a synonym for a meeting is disrespectful Thanks for listening and learning how to be more kind.
