It’s bullying prevention awareness week at Earl Haig. Students are learning about how they can stand up to bullying and to not be a bystander. As part of this theme, the Empathy & Character Assembly will be happening this Friday at 2:20pm. Mr. Long’s class and Mr. Salsman’s class will be performing skits they specially prepared on this topic. Students are encouraged to dress up in the class colour chosen in order to Stand Up to Bullying. Talk to your children and keep the conversation going.
This weeks School Council meeting has a special guest speaker. TDSB social worker, Nina Bregman will be talking about the duty to report and Children’s Aid.

The Hullabaloo was an incredible success again this year. We surpassed our goal and raised $8939. That’s $2000 more than last year. Thanks to everyone who supported the event. The funds will be allocated later this year, so keep an eye on future school council agendas if you’d like to take part in the discussions. Special thanks to Chris and Stephanie for leading the charge and their dedicated committee members who worked so hard to run the event.
