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.

From Ms. Crocker and Ms. McKay:

Special recognition goes out to two students who have been brightening everyone's day with their clothing and costumes during online learning. Carter G. and John C. have been going out of there way to make learning fun and we appreciate their suits and funny costumes!

Thank you to Issac B. who has been helping his classmates when their internet is down. He facetimed his classmate and made sure they were a part of the class!

Students are not to go into google classrooms that are not their own. Please be respectful of other people’s learning space.

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 (jcottingham@hrce.ca) or fax to 435 8469 or arrange to drop it off at the school by calling 435 8420.

Watch for information to come about an on-line Spirit Day on Friday, May 14!

Planning for 2021-22 School Year:
If you know your child will not be returning to Ellenvale next year because of a move or transfer, please let the office know (435-8420) or email jcottingham@hrce.ca.

Please continue to call the office safe arrival line or send an email to jcottingham@hrce.ca to report your child absent or late to any class(es). Thanks!

Bussing for 2021-22:
If you think your child may qualify for bussing next year (this particularly applies to grade 9 students going into Grade 10), please ensure your primary address is up–to-date in PowerSchool as the bus companies draw their information from PowerSchool. Please call the office at 435 8420 if you need to update or verify your address.

Stay Safe, Be Kind.
