School Fundraising

Our school has signed up to participate in Purdys Chocolates Christmas campaign! This year, we are hoping to put the proceeds towards overall school aesthetics and culture-building activities. You can order anytime between now and November 26th - all orders will be ready for pickup by December 12th. This is a great way to get some shopping done and support the school as well (we will receive 25% of sales). You can create an account and check out the catalogue here: https://fundraising.purdys.com/780246-96025.

Library Updates

Over the summer, our library got a makeover! We have new flooring, new seating, a new checkout counter (not to mention a few hundred new books) and a new librarian, Mrs. Majeran. Stop by to take a look and check out the great things that are happening! Here are just a few of our new titles:

Lost/Missing Textbooks and Library Materials

Did you happen to find a textbook while cleaning out your room this summer? Did you discover the library book you checked out last year when opening up your backpack on the first day of school? If so, please bring them to the library so we can check them in for you before you are assessed a fine for missing materials.

This week you should have received the: Student Responsible Technology Use Agreement

Meet the Staff and School Council

We love when our parents are involved in our school and community. We will be having our first School Council meeting following the Staff Meet and Greet on September 14, 2022.


In May we successfully filled both the chair and vice chair positions however we are still looking for a secretary to keep minutes during the meeting. Please email mark.wever@eips.ca if you are interested in helping fill that position.


We do our best to keep meetings to a one-hour limit but do appreciate any questions or support. We look forward to seeing you throughout the year if you are able to attend.
