Student Vote: Tomorrow, May 29th

Student Vote – the 2018 Provincial edition – is here.  Our in-school Election Day is tomorrow, Tuesday May 29th.

  • Would you like to learn a little bit about the behind the scenes reality of an Election Day?

We’re still have openings for a couple of student volunteers to help out before school and during the lunchhour.

  • Please drop by the Library ASAP if you are able to help out.
  • Community service hours apply.

Final Friday Fun Day!

Come to the Library at lunch today and step back from the ‘busy-ness’ of life.

  • Bring your lunch – and a mug for tea! – and take an intentional time out for an hour.
  • Pack up your troubles!  RELAX! 
  • At the very least drop by and pick up a book to keep on hand for when you need a study break during the exam period.

Indeed, today is also the year-end Staff Potluck in the Library… have lunch with your favourite teachers!

Room 217 will be open for anyone who absolutely needs computer or printer access for academic purposes only.

TCAF came to ESA…

With thanks to our friends from The Beguiling for making this opportunity available to us…

Two wonderful workshops with Jen Wang in the morning, and then a lunch get-together before she had to head off to the airport for her flight back to L.A.

Today in the Library…

Please note that there will be NO ACCESS to the Library during morning class periods on Friday February 9th.

  • Access during class periods is by invitation only with your class/teacher.

We are delighted to be hosting OCAD Professor and Aboriginal Advisor/Mentor David General while he visits ESA.

  • A gifted artist, Professor General ‘consults on best practices for Aboriginal student engagement, curriculum development and outreach initiatives for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students’.

There will also be limited access to the lower level before school, and during the lunchhour, as there will be no tables available and no chairs at the computers.

Equity, and other invited guests, will be having a special session – at the back of the Library – with Professor General during the lunchhour.

Mindfulness and Final Friday Fun Day… tomorrow!

Start your day off with Thursday morning Mindfulness in The Walden Room starting at 8:10am.

Then join us at lunch for Final Friday Fun Day.

  • This week Final Friday Fun Day falls on the Thursday as it’s the last day of classes before exams begin…

Tomorrow we’re going to have a good old fashioned “Rainy Day Games Day”…

  • The Library has a collection of games including cribbage, chess, backgammon, Jenga, Yahtzee, Sorry!, and more.
  • Or you can bring your own games.
  • Whatever you do, bring your lunch and come join in the fun.

Take a radical approach to exam prep this time around… skip the last minute cramming and studying tomorrow at lunch…

  • Join in the fun and games…. or,
  • Engage in some quiet meditative practice… or,
  • Read a book… we have great collections of poetry and short stories… just the perfect length for those little breaks so necessary when studying.
