Our own ELC Student! Congratulations Taylor!

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A local Fort St. John teen is being recognized by the Governor General of Canada.  15-year-old Taylor DeVos has received word she has been awarded the Soverign’s Medal for Volunteers by the Right Honourable David Johnston.

Taylor says it is a huge honour to be recognized with such a prestigious award and is still trying to come to terms with such an accomplishment.

“It’s a huge honour to be recognized by the Governor General in this way! I am still trying to wrap my head around receiving this. When I found out, it was through the email that I posted and my first response was, “that’s cool!” I didn’t really realize how big of a deal it was until I started telling my relatives and their reactions were huge.”

Since she received the first email, she has since received more communication that she could be selected to experience a once in a lifetime ceremony.

“We received a second email that said that my name is down to possibly attend a ceremony but we won’t know until the committee makes their decision, which can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. If I don’t attend the ceremony then the award will be given by a local official.”

Taylor is being recognized for her work with 1 Kid Making A Difference and the K.I.D.S Making A Difference journey.

Parent Portal

The ELC is excited about the new Parent Portal which will allow you to access your students current marks, assignments, attendance, future report cards plus much more! Parents should have received an email before the Christmas break with their password and login information.  The Parent Portal will follow your student to graduation and is an excellent way to stay connected and up to date on your students progress.parentsteacherstudent

Successful Christmas Hampers

Welcome back and welcome 2017!  Our school year is well underway and the days are getting longer!  The ELC students and staff really pulled together for our Christmas hampers with $4,400.00 being raised in gift cards and cash for our 3 families PLUS  tables full of food and individual gifts for the families.

We also had a challenge – that Mr Steele graciously accepted – wherein if we raised enough money he would wear Elmo pajamas for a day.  Quite coincidentally (wink wink) this day was also the day we went up to NPSS for the student talent show.  Thank goodness for a good natured Elmo!

November Interims

Interims will be going home Friday, October 28th.  These will show the student’s current mark in all courses and the breakdown of assignment marks and any missed assignments.  As well there will be a student information verification form that will need to be reviewed for the correct information and returned.  We are in the process of creating a family portal information system so that parents and/or guardians can easily access marks and completed or missed assignments at any time.  We are hoping this will be in place by mid-November.

ELC Community Project

We would like to formally invite you to come help us celebrate our last school wide project of the year at the Energetic Learning Campus.  The driving question for this project was: How will I make a difference in our community?

In this project, students at the ELC were encouraged to get involved to gain a better outlook within their local community and make a difference. Students had the ability to recognize and tackle local issues and take action with practical implementations. We hoped to encourage students to take pride and identify the strengths within their community, to build communication and connections between generations, to create positive change, and become globally educated citizens.

We will be hosting friends, family and community members on the morning of June 7, 2016 from 10:00 am -12:00. The exhibition will be set up like a trade show where visitors can walk through the school and interact with the many different projects. We hope that you will have the time to come down and celebrate with our students of how they plan to make our community a better place.
