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:

Friday, May 21, is a Professional Development day – no classes for students.
Monday, May 24 is the Victoria Day Holiday – no classes for students.

Spirit Day!
Thursday, May 20 – Pet Show Off during first period!

Speaking of school spirit, If you are considering the purchase of school clothing for a year-end surprise for your child, please go to  http://ellenvalejuniorhighschool.entripyshops.com/.

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 1 DAY remains to buy your Rafflebox Fundraiser 50/50 Tickets!! Total raised so far: $5,040.00 (this past October, we raised $5660)! McCarron’s 702 kept up the push to increase their overall lead. Leslie’s 805 hangs solid in 2nd place, Moore’s 704 has a loose hold on 3rd place. Nadeau’s 703 really picked up speed in that 4th position and can still overcome Moore in 3rd place! Cameron’s 706 has taken 5th place which is going to make it a challenge for Short’s 803 to rise to the top. Looks like Cameron’s class has thrown down the gauntlet to Attig’s 705 homeroom! Don’t give up you folks on the bottom. There is still time to pour it on and surprise everyone!

McCarron 702 - $725 Cameron 706 - $370 Attig 705 - $225 Leveck 803 - $100
Leslie 805 - $615 Short 803 - $310 Boudreau 905 - $165 Graham 901 - $75

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 (more info and details to follow). 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.
