Week TWO - Website: elj.hrc.ca
We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, which is the unceded traditional ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
This is very important: Unfortunately, we have had a call from the Principal at another school to say that some of our students have trespassed onto their google classroom links. Students are not to go into google classrooms that are not their own. It is a privilege to be able to learn on-line. Please be respectful of other people’s learning space.
Our on-line learning adventure continues!! Please do not hesitate to contact you child’s teachers or to call the school at 435 8420 if you have any concerns or questions. The schedule for on line learning can be found on our website: elj.hrce.ca. Your child can access their personal schedule in PowerSchool.
Please be patient and understanding. Many of our teachers are working from home and internet connections may be unreliable. We are bound to have frustrations and bumps on the first days of on-line learning, but, together, we can push through keep learning and caring for each other.
If you received a chrome book, you will have also received an agreement for it’s use by you at home. Please return that agreement once it has been signed. You can scan to email (email@example.com) or fax to 435 8469 or ring the doorbell at the school front door and drop it off. Thanks!
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.
Don’t forget to buy your tickets for our Rafflebox 50/50 Fundraiser!! Okay – over $2200 raised and here are the standings: Mme. Leslie at $350, Ms. McCarron in second place at $210, and Mr. Paul (Vautour) in third at $200. Keep up the great sales folks. Thank you so much to everyone who has participated so far.

From 905 Civics Group:
Today’s tip to avoid being a bucket dipper is to not say “you’re basically white”. Just because someone has lighter skin doesn’t mean that they aren’t “Black enough” or that they are “white”. They are still a person of colour regardless. Thanks for listening and learning how to be more kind.
