From Wednesday October 24th to Thursday November 1st, École Port Elgin Saugeen Central School’s Me2We Group will be coordinating a food drive called Halloween for Hunger.  We are planning a week long collection of food, which will then be donated to the local food banks for our area.  As the food bank is currently in need of all donations, every item counts!  Sadly, hunger is a daily reality for millions of people, and in fact, one in six Canadian families lives below the poverty line.  According to the Foodbanks Canada website, each month, over 850,000 people turn to food banks for help; of these, more than one-third are children/youth.
 
Any and all donations of non-perishable food items and/or personal hygiene products are greatly appreciated! We are aiming to break our previous school record of over 1500 items collected for the food bank.  As the sorting and packing of the items is a HUGE job for a small group of students, PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK PACKAGE DATES CAREFULLY AS EXPIRED FOOD IS NOT ACCEPTED BY THE FOOD BANK AND WILL HAVE TO BE THROWN OUT.  Please put your Wildcat spirit into full gear for the duration of our drive, and try your best to donate what you can! Thank you, we are looking forward to a very successful event!!

grumpycatpump.gifPrincipal and Vice-Principal’s Message, Karen Spragg and Amy Doherty

file:///C:/Users/sprakar/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01.pngIt is hard to believe that we are saying good-bye to September and launching into the month of October.  September has been a busy month with a reorganization along with welcoming over 700 students to EPESCS.   I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Saugeen Central school community for your patience, support and understanding over the past month as we dealt with the unexpected enrolment increase.  

These are some of the highlights of events over the past few weeks.  The Terry Fox run  on September 27 raised close to $1100.  The H.O.G.S. visited the school on October 1st to present $500 to the Breakfast Club program.   On October 1st, students across the school wore orange shirts  in order to acknowledge the impact of Residential Schools on First Nations people across Canada.    Students in Ms. Weigand’s class not only wore orange shirts but they also read texts that taught them about why residential schools were a n incredible hardship.
