We would like to formally invite you to come help us celebrate our community focused school wide project 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 encouraged students to take pride and identify the strengths within their community, to build communication and connections between generations, to create positive change, and become more globally educated citizens.
We will be hosting friends, family and community members on the morning of May 24, 2016 from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. The exhibition will be set up like a trade show where visitors can walk through the school and interact with the many different projects, some of which the students have already put in action. We hope that you will have the time to come down and celebrate with our students their plan on how to make our community a better place.

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.
The next PAC meeting is Tuesday, January 10th at 7:00pm in the North Peace Library
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!
WELL DONE ELC!
This week is a busy week at the ELC! Today we are having soup and sandwiches for sale to raise money for our Christmas Hamper Families. Tuesday is smoothie day. Wednesday is Christmas sweater day. Thursday is the talent show up at NPSS which some of our students are showcasing their talents at. And Friday is organize and wrap our Christmas hampers, followed by the Trackers hockey game in the afternoon.
