October Newsletter

Time flies…it’s October already!
Below we have the October newsletter for you. It is well worth reading…

For example: did you know the proceeds of our school cafeteria are used within the school? Getting great food and fundraising at the same time!
It doesn’t get any better than that…

Or that there will be a Youth Summit for all students grades 8 through 12 at the High School next week?
Topics include self-defence, healthy lifestyle choices, healthy relationships, yoga and mindfulness, stress, success, tribal tattooing, and conflict resolution.

Did you know there are two teachers who organise home work clubs?
Ms. Bob is offering Homework Club on Mondays, 7 pm at the Gitsegukla Youth Centre, and on Thursdays, 3:10 pm at Hazelton Secondary School.
Kispiox coming soon, date and location to be announced.

Ms. Brown is offering Math help for Grades 10 and 11 in Room 103 at lunch and after school on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

Use your teachers to your advantage, if you’re behind on work or if you would like more instruction. And know that all teachers are more than willing to help you out, if you ask them.
Show your teachers a spark and they will help you make it into a fire!

And do you know about Libby? Read all about that in the newsletter too!

Terry Fox Run

Every year we participate in the Terry Fox Run.
We all know about Terry Fox, his bravery, his Marathon of Hope and the incredible legacy he left us all. Terry Fox showed, like no other, how one man can make a difference for the better and change the lives of so many people around him, near and far.

It is great to see all the students and staff participating, either running or walking and fundraising at the same time.
This year we made approx. $225.50!

We had a very special student in school today.
Almost every student had a smile on their face when this new guy came by, and he was petted by numerous students!
Meet Ollie, Master of Calm Energy!

Ollie is a therapy dog and has been in schools since he was 5 months old! Ollie is very smart, he is certified Saint John Ambulance Therapy Dog and certified for the Paws 4 Stories Children’s Program.

This is what our student Gavin has to say about Ollie:
“Ollie is a very important dog. He is a five year old Golden Retriever. He’s a therapy dog, his job is to be with kids who are feeling frustrated, anxious or sad. He does what dogs do best: being very lovable. He loves it when you scratch him behind his ear and when you play fetch.
Ollie can read your emotions, just by looking and seeing how you act, for example if you are excited and talking loud, he can tell you are excited, and then he gets excited. When you see Ollie be sure that you’re calm, and ask his handler if you may pet him.
When you walk him be sure to keep his leash short, because if there is food in the hallways on the floor, he’ll try and get it. You know how dogs are…
Me personally, my favorite thing to do with Ollie is to be around him and hang out with him, play fetch, but to be honest just seeing a dog will always put a smile on my face.”

We couldn’t agree more, Gavin!

For now Ollie will be at Hazelton Secondary on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for the next few months, and maybe even longer…

And don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

I would like to extend my special thanks to our student Gavin, not only for writing about Ollie, but also for taking the great pictures of him. Gavin will be assisting me to take pictures of school activities, when I am not at school.
Happy to have you on board, Gavin!
