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:

Spirit Days!
TODAY – Rainbow Day – dress in all the colours!
Thursday, May 20 – Pet Show Off during first period!

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.

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!

Office Hours:
If you are coming to the school pay for a yearbook, pick up a chrome book, instruments or student’s personal item, please call 435-8420 before coming to the school to make sure someone is available to meet you.

ONLY 4 DAYS to buy your Rafflebox Fundraiser 50/50 Tickets!! Total raised so far: $4,400.00 (this past October, we raised $5660)! McCarron’s 702 increased their lead over Leslie’s 805, Moore’s 704 is hanging tough in 3rd place, but Nadeau’s 703 jumped another spot to 4th place so they are breathing down Moore’s neck and they elbowed Shortt’s 803 down to 5th place! Doucette’s 902, Cameron’s 706 and Parson’s 804 had good pushes forward (well done!), Vautour’s 904 finally got unstuck. Will Mme Attig’s class let Mme Cameron’s class beat them? There are two classes tied for last place – no one wants to be last, right? Can’t wait to see what happens over the weekend! Standings follow (highest are in the first column).

McCarron 702 - $610 Shortt 803 - $290 Attig 705 - $225 Leveck 803 - $100
Leslie 805 - $575 Cameron 706 - $285 Boudreau 905 - $165 Graham 901 - $75
Moore 704 - $440 Vautour 904 - $260 Doucette 902 - $135 Coles 701 - $40
Nadeau 703 - $370 Tramble 903 - $230 Parson’s 804 - $140 Sparks 801 - $40

Pizza party is up for grabs for the 1st place homeroom (maybe we will have the party outside)! And, we will have Ellenvale swag for the 2nd and 3rd place classes also. Spread the word, share our rafflebox website to invite friends, neighbours, relatives and old Ellenvale students to participate!

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.

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.

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.
