On behalf of all staff at École Charlie Killam School, I would like to wish everyone a fun-filled and wonderful December. With Christmas and the Holiday Season upon us, I hope all families find time to enjoy a wonderful and memory-filled season of sharing, caring and love with one another.
The last three months at ECKS have flown by. I would like to thank all the community volunteers who make an incredible impact on our school. From our Breakfast Program, to our music parents, to our coaches, and School Council parents, and all of you for helping with our kids in Our House; thank you.
I would also like the thank all parents and guardians who take the time to work with their children. From sitting down to help your child with their homework; no matter the grade, thank you for your support.
As Ecole Charlie Killam continues to grow, so does the diversity of Our House. The different languages spoken and the cultures represented in ECKS and our community make us a truly special place to be! Thank you for being a partner with us as we work with your children and help them grow.
On behalf of all the staff at ECKS,
Joyeuses fêtes, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Joyeux Noël.

Thank you to the Chopped Leaf for supporting our Reading Challenge by providing 88 free lunches to our winners!
During the second week of December our Eco-Club asked all students to put their lunch packing in special boxes so they could track and share how much waste we leave behind at noon. Based on 2 days in homerooms, and only including lunch packaging, Mr. Wizniuk and the Eco-Club found the following:
Grade 6's produced 660 g of packaging.
Grade 7's produced 670 g of packaging.
Grade 8's produced 220 g of packaging
If you extrapolate this over a year, we send roughly 307 lbs (139.5kg) of lunch packaging to the landfill!
