Just a reminder now that the weather is getting colder, that students should dress accordingly for the day. Students will still be waiting outside in the morning for the Bell to ring, as well as spending at least a half hour a day outside for recess.
Unless it’s raining, or bitterly cold, students should be prepared to be outside. Bitterly cold is a wind-chill reflected temperature of 10° or below.
A steering committee was formed in the fall of 2016 called Voices for Education (VFE). Made up of students, teachers, school administrators, community members, and school board representatives, VFE is in the process of being actively involved in helping to facilitate dialogue and other engagement opportunities to help the EWSD. Learn more about VFE and the activities that they are taking part in.
