This is a photo of Sherry Saevil who is the HCDSB’s Indigenous Education Advisor. She was honoured as a noteworthy woman in the ‘100 Years/100 Women’ art installation at the First Ontario Arts Centre in Milton for her tremendous work in advocating for Indigenous issues. She is also one of the founders of the Grandmother’s voice Indigenous Healing and Medicine Garden featured in the above picture at Country Heritage Park. She is also a leading advocate for the creation of the Mohawk Village Memorial Park to honour the children who attended the Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School in Brantford, ON. Our school’s Orange Shirt Day funds were directed toward this important work.
Quote of the Day
Yesterday’s Quizzle: Which word becomes shorter when you add 2 letters to it? Answer: Short. (Short becomes shorter when you add the letters er to it!)
Today’s Quizzle: (from Mr. Hawken) How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh?
If you have a quizzle for Mrs. Stephens, write it down and submit it to the office. You’ll get credit for your work!
The field is open again today. If your zone is on the field, please stay out of the mud patches. This means that staff who would normally be in the West Parking Lot are now monitoring the students on the field.
Repeat! Students are reminded to remain in their assigned zones.
Repeat! Volleyballs are only permitted outside if they are not bumped or spiked. They get far too out of control and are dangerous. Practice your volleying!
Ms. MacIntyre, who was supposed to offer planning time payback today, was pulled to cover a class. We apologize for the inconvenience. You will get the first pick of PT Payback next week.
