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.
Report cards will be going home with students March 16th.
There will be early dismissal days with classes ending at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, March 16th and Thursday, March 17th. If parents would like to have parent teacher interviews on the early dismissal days please contact the school at 250-263-9855.
Don’t forget about Spring Break! starting March 21 with students returning to school April 4th.

Another successful year for our Christmas family hampers! The students and staff worked incredibly hard at making Christmas a joyous occasion for six families and one senior. Together $4,800.00 was raised in cash and gift cards, plus at least $2,000 in food and gifts. “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates Love” Lao Tzu
The ELC students have helped create a lot of love in our FSJ community!

It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas at the ELC! It has become an annual tradition for us at the ELC to sponsor single parent families in need at Christmas time. We are pleased to announce that we are sponsoring 6 families and one food hamper for a senior this year!
Christmas hampers usually include a Christmas dinner, clothes for the children, winter coats, shoes, other gifts based on the children’s interest, and groceries to carry the family a bit past the season. The students and staff really enjoy working together to bring enjoyment to a family in the Christmas season.
Our students have been working hard on their Mythbusters project gathering data and busting or proving myths! They will be presenting what they have discovered on December 9th to parents or guardians. Please see the attached letter for more information.
The ELC will be open for new registrations Tuesday, September 1st to Friday, September 4th from 8 am – 4 pm. We look forward to meeting our new students on our first school day, September 8th from 8:40 am – 11:00 am. Students do not need to bring school supplies on their first day:)
We shared the day with Grade 6 students from Bert Ambrose for a busy, fun filled informative day with loads of learning and technology. The students enjoyed digital photography, built catapults, did some physical testing and calculated the results, created a community flag, ran, danced, and enjoyed some tasty bannock. We are not called the Energetic Learning Campus for nothing!
