This is a message from the student council & the committee for Equity and Inclusion, informing everyone that this week we will be celebrating International Pronoun Day, which takes place this Wednesday, October 20th. We would like to take the opportunity to raise awareness for how important it is to learn the pronouns of others and respect them. Making an effort to use the right pronouns is extremely validating! This week, we’ll be sharing information with you each day and on Wednesday you’ll be able to view a video in class explaining the importance of pronouns!

In rowing there is room for all! ELC Rowing is one of the biggest teams in the school. Come out, come out and give it a try. Many students when they come to high school have never tried rowing and this is your chance to try your luck at one of Canada's most successful Olympic sports
ELC Rowing competes in the spring but begins important preparations for the spring on water racing season in the Winter.
Sign up on the school Google Form sent out on Friday. We will be sharing important information at an upcoming info meeting in the near future.
The program is flexible, and everyone is welcome (do not worry at all about having no rowing experience).
If you have any questions, see Mr. Ruscitti in Room 206. Feel free to email as well. Go blue and gold!
