Grade 7&8 badminton is under way! The tournaments are during the school day. ECKS team members will be playing on the following dates...

Divisionals - April 13th

Regionals - April 20th (only for those moving on from the divisional tournament)

Grade 6 badminton will begin on Friday, March 24th. There will be a sign up sheet located outside the gym on the bulletin board. All players are welcome!


Our junior high boys basketball team was able to achieve something that has not been done since we became a middle school, WIN the regional championship! Our school was able to overcome tough odds with only having grade 8 athletes playing in a league that has up to grade 9 athletes. We are so proud of our team and coaching staff. Way to go Cougars!!
