Yesterday, we started our morning as a school community listening and learning. We have been reading and having conversations to help us learn more about the National Truth and Reconciliation Week. Many classes having been learning about Indigenous Peoples and Residential Schools for most of September.
We were honoured to learn from Elder Audrey Bone at our assembly. She shared some teachings, some stories and encouraged us to be the best we could be, to be kind to one another and to know that each and every one of us is special.
Here are the slides of our assembly. Thank you to Earl Grey Eagles for Equality, students, staff and Elder Audrey for sharing with us.
On Tuesday, we had our first ZOOM Whole School Assembly. EEE (Earl Grey Eagles for Equality) together with Mrs. Last told us all about Terry Fox.
This week we are collecting Toonies for Terry. Students can bring their Toonies to their Classroom Teacher and Mrs. Last will collect the money each day. EEE will count the money and it will be donated for Cancer Research through the Terry Fox family.
On Friday we will have our run. Grade 1-3 students will run inside the playground in their cohorts and Grade 4 – 8 students will run around the block in their cohorts. There will be 2 runs in order to keep everyone in their cohorts.
Families are encouraged to talk about family, friends or neighbours that might have experienced the effects of Cancer as students will have the opportunity to write someone’s name on a sticker and dedicate their run to them.
Thank you EEE for encouraging us to think of others right from the first week of school.
We are so proud of our Earl Grey Community!!
