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. McKay and Ms. Crocker:

Students, please take a moment to do a tick check if you have been outside on the field.

If you have not already done so, please remember to bring your chromebook back to school. Thank you!

Parents: If at all possible, we are hoping for donations of disposable masks please and thank you.

Hey Ellenvale it's Pride Month!
The Youth Project hosts virtual hang outs for non-binary and LGBTQ youth each month. Check out their website https://youthproject.ns.ca/ for info if you'd like to join.

The Woodlawn Public Library is hosting a Connect the Dots on June 29. This is a virtual event where LGBTQ+ youth and their friends drop in, make connections and have fun. Please visit the Library website for more information.

From Ms. Jackson:
All books are due back on June 18. They can be dropped off in the box outside the library at any time. Thank you.
Healthy Hunger Orders (visit healthyhunger.ca to place orders):
Lunch orders for both Kenny’s and Sunwich have been extended to June 25 to help you use up your Healthy Hunger credits. (Please see the top righthand corner of your healthy hunger personal account to see how much credit you have.) When you place a NEW order, you can apply this credit once you arrive at the payment part of the process.

Acknowledging Mr. Jeff Lewis’s career and retirement:
You are invited to contribute to a gift to honour and appreciate Mr. Lewis’ contribution and dedication to education. Mr. Lewis retired on May 1. Please drop off donations to the school (cheques made out to Ellenvale Junior High School). We will add your name to the card. We are hoping to gift him a memorable getaway to Trout Point Lodge (https://www.troutpoint.com/)
