Un peu d'information...
To grade 6C, 6D and 6E parents and students,
Mme Lécuyer and Mme Tremblay’s classes are in the process of creating family trees in their French as a Second Language class. In order for the students to complete this work successfully, we would appreciate your help in helping your child with the proper spelling of names and years of birth (and death if applicable) of parents (step-parents if applicable), grand-parents, uncles, aunts and cousins by the end of the month of November 2019. Within the first two weeks of December, the final project will be sent home for you to see and sign before sending back to school.
Thank you for your help and support!
Mme Lécuyer and Mme Tremblay

ECKS Leadership Class is doing amazing things
Our ÉCKS leadership students will be helping all of us get into the spirit of the holidays with the activities they have planned. From Dec 4th, the start of the count down, until the 19th, our Leadership class is helping to enrich our holiday experiences in our hallways. In addition to door decorating, snowman day, hat day, candy grams and all the other activities they have planned, the activities below are a way for students to connect with the idea of giving.
There is a school wide kindness initiative, with the "Stealthy Elf" campaign. Ask your student for more information.
Locally, students will be encouraged to donate new mittens, gloves, or socks that we will send to the local shelters.
And globally, they will be trying to raise enough money to purchase a goat for a developing nation.
We will be sending messages with date reminders once the festivities have started.
ÉCKS Christmas Concert
The ECKS Christmas Band and Choir concert is scheduled for Wednesday, December 18 in the ECKS Gym. All groups will be performing. Students afe asked to notify coaches, dance instructors, etc. in order that we have full attendance at this annual event. There will be a silver collection for the Camrose Foodbank at the door.
More details regarding the time of the concert will be coming soon. In the meantime, we invite all parents and families to come out and see what the music students have learned so far!
Basketball Season has started!
